For the first one - HELL yes.

Roddick's reaction has me in stitches every time I see that.

Re: Federer Hot shots: have a look at this

For the first time, I feel bad for Roddick. He could have had a good 2 years on top, winning 3 Wimbledons and who knows what else. This guy really destroyed him. I mean, as a tennis player, how do you react to that kind of point?

Re: Federer Hot shots: have a look at this

Note...I am assuming that this match was from Basel in 2002, as the random commentor said on the UTube page. If thats the case, Roddick did not win any games after that.

Also, this was pre-TMF era; at this point, Roddick was potentially the better player. Even more awesomeness.

Re: Federer Hot shots: have a look at this

Well, clearly not, as evidenced there. Still, that was when ppl were wondering whether Federer would ever make it on the big stage and do well in a Slam.
