I just watched Paul Henri Mathieu hit the best shot I've ever seen against roddick!

roddick hit a lob and mathieu was near the boards and roddick came to net then mathieu hit a short inside out forehand to pass him! :eek: I couldn't believe it!

whats the best shot you've ever seen?

Sampras against Medvedev at 1993 Masters : behind the back half volley drop shot from Pete....
Right now Im not sure that shot was even true or if it was just a dream.

Federer vs Philippoussis Wimby 2003 final

Philippoussis hits a beautiful volley, and Fed is at opposite side of court, Fed unbelievably gets to the ball and hits an incredible FH passing shot to give him the 1st break point in the 2nd set

This isn't answering the question, but I was watching the PHM and Roddick match from the promenade area where the big (crappy) screen is. I kid you not when I say that almost everybody watching the screen hollered and stood up when he did that :lol:

Federer vs Roddick, Wimbledon SF 2003
On set point to go 2-0 up, Fed constructs the perfect point and finishes it with a half-volley forehand winner with topspin at the net.
The whole crowd stood up to applause and I remember Roddick saying "How did he do that."
Unbelievable!

There was a shot Federer hit in the first set against Hewitt in last years US Open final, I forget which game it was in, but I remember stopping and rewinding the tape a few times, it was a pretty crazy shot, Federer has a lot of them lmao!
