Federer Backhand Saves Championship Point

Anyone feeling the need to disagree with my opinion on the shot why bother getting involed?

I loved this shot and I am on the lookout for anyone with a picture of this(vs nadal wimbledon 2008).

Someone said they have it recorded and could take a shot(I can't remember the posters name because the thread had been deleted) but I would love it if they could take any sort of picture of this shot because I cant find anything. Would really appreciate it.

Thanks you.

Andy Roddick. Hero.

It was a normal saved match point, like we see in many other matches. The backhand was nothing special technically, as Nadal's attacking forehand wasn't good. Shot of the year means that it has to be a fantastic point/shot and not only a special situation.

Re: Federer Backhand Saves Championship Point

Saving a championship point at Wimbledon when being under so much pressure makes it good enough for me to consider it one of the year's best shots

Allez!

Re: Federer Backhand Saves Championship Point

Federer had to hit such incredible shots to simply stay in the match

My passion for tennis.

Because he was always playing catch up and had been playing atrociously for the first 3 and a half sets. Well 2 and a half.

By the way why are we still talking about this?

Can't believe you created yet another thread about this joke match and pedestrian shot.

MTF is reaching new lows.

You do know that those two sentences make you look like someone who started watching tennis today at 8 am. Oh, wait, that's probably true!
