Roger Federer Hits Another Tweener in Doha, This Time From the Baseline [Video]
by Tom Gainey | January 4th, 2011, 1:48 pm

Roger Federer has done it again. Today in a routine win over qualifier Thomas Schoorel the Swiss Maestro made magic again hitting yet another unbelievable between-the-legs winner.

This one, unlike previous tweeners when we see him chasing down a lob, was struck while at baseline during the normal progression of a rally. Instead of hitting a forehand Federer appeared to over run the ball (or was just caught in a patch of bad footwork) and then he flicked a tweener winner.

Unreal. And it was his first official match of the season which Federer won 76, 63.

Seppl Ruedi Says:

King Roger rules

TGiT Says:

What is amazing is Federer was 8 feet behind the baseline and out of position when Schoorel sent a left forehand rocket at him.


Skeezerweezer Says:

Oh stop it already Fed! Geez…….King of shotmaking & doing it with winners still! Absolutely amazing stuff.

Sean Randall Says:

That’s downright silly!

Daniel Says:

The best part is the line judge laughing at 0:42, awesome!

dari Says:

That commentator is right, what a scoundrel! Two shots before the tweener he decided be wasn’t gonna go out of his way with that backhand, then decides not to adjust on the forehand two shots later. He suffered no consequences for those decisions!

Catherine Says:

Best part of it is that Schoorel very much appreciated it himself as well!
I’m hoping for this nice young player to indeed have a great career soon to be coming.

Steve Says:

Fed, greatest sportsman I know, he makes it looks ridiculously casual……. Fed fed fed………

Netherlands/Dutch got some good players now with Schoorel coming up and De Bakker and Haase, who has been injured so often.

Steve Says:

The ball hit the net, it changed direction a bit and he suddenly thought ‘why not hit it through my legs if that’s more comfortable’. Genius.

contador Says:

have to go youtube the match. only saw first few games of the 1st set when schoorel still had hope.

contador Says:

hahahaha…what a tweener!! had schoorel laughing too. federer looks so relaxed…just having fun playing tennis.

bibi Says:

Check out even better face-forward tweeners.

dari Says:

I can’t see where the ball landed on pierces shot, but the jump sure was something.
Istomins was better than feds, but fed just always looks better than the next guy!
