Hang on a second, don't tell me he actually won the point with that shot? It was clearly a double bounce. And he certainly was aware of that, so why raise his hand as if he's celebrating something?

I often think im a specialist at the hot dog, better than alot of the pros, I often make passing shot winners from it.

Didn't mean a 'normal' double bounce, but it looked like the ball bounced off the floor AFTER he hit it with his racquet. But after watching it 10 times I'm not sure anymore, this FLV format of YouTube sucks big time, can't see it, can't slow it down, can't anything. Damn. So useless. :rolleyes:

Could be that the ball actually hit the border of his racquet and not the floor, hence the odd trajectory. But I'd like to see this shot in some decent video format, not this flash crap. :mad:

Lucky shot, not a very clean hit. No double bounce however.

at the end it linked me to an incredible diving shot from leander paes that I'd never seen before.
Unfortunately the shitty video doesn't think it necessary to show where the ball goes but the athleticism is amazing and judging from the celebration it shows I'll assume it was a winner.
A lot of the time dives are purely for show but this is the real deal.
