Here’s Proof Roger Federer Can Still Hit Tweeners At Age 33 [Video]

Roger Federer broke out some of his trick shots in an easy 63, 64 win last night over Feliciano Lopez to reach the final at the Rogers Cup.

Mid way through the first set, Federer executed another one of his perfect tweeners, his first as a 33-year-old. The Swiss ultimately lost the point, curiously just sending a ball into the crowd on a give-up stroke, but it shows Federer still has got it.

(Updated with correct video – TG)

Federer tries to avenge two previous losses in Canada to Jo-Wilfried Tsonga today in the men’s final in Toronto at 3pm.

Humble Rafa Says:

His first as a 33 year old

Wow. Such original journalism.

Did we document His Highness’ first FH winner, first BW, first bathroom break, etc as a 33 year old. We don’t want to miss such important moments in history.

Here is the video of the tweener: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z4ggsfGg2jU


Hippy Chic Says:

LOL Lovely shot seems to be Rogers party piece….


SX1 Says:

Humble Rafa is upset as none noticed that this was his first injury break as 28 yo.

no?


Giles Says:

The 33 year old seems to be very good at “between the legs” activities! An artist one might say!
Come on Jo!


Lodhi Says:

Yea that’s awesome. Should he join a circus where he hits tweeners all day to amuse people ? Or may be he could go to Vegas and start his own ‘Phantom of the Tweener’ show ?

A lot of people on this tour have hit awesome tweeners, and alot of people before Fed have hit alot of tweeners. So my question is: what’s your god-damn infatuation with these tweeners Tom Gainey ?


skeezer Says:

” Phantom of the Tweener’
more like
“King of the Tweener”

btw have a link showing a player before Fed time doing tweeners?

And yeah, its awesome. A very hard shot to pull off and to occasionally hit winners by it is even more awesome. Can’t get enough of that shot.Keep post in it Tom!

@skeezer

Fabrice Santoro 2005. One of many tweeners hit before Fed

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n74rRReuylI

Now you’ll tell me Fed was the first guy to hit a forehand ?

Don’t post dumbass comments that reek stupidity.


Okiegal Says:

@Lodhi

Thanks for pointing that out…..you are so right. I had forgotten why Fabrice was called the magician…He truly was one . I loved to watch him play. I remember well the match with Fed. I have posted a few times myself that Roger is not the only one that can do a tweener. They’re commonplace on the circuit now. Enjoyed the clip!


skeezer Says:

@Lodhi
Before you start calling names in desperation, maybe you should better start by reading better.
I said show me, I didn’t say “he was the first”. So get your name calling right.
“King of the Tweeners”, is the correct name, he’s been more successful at it than anyone.

Pe; if you don’t like Tom Gainey’s stuff, don’t read it. Your choice.


Lodhi Says:

@skeezer

If Tom Gainey has a stupid obsession, I want to let him know.

As far as you are concerned, being King of tweeners is no different that anybody calling Nadal the King of Banana Shot or Djokovic the King of Flexi-tennis , and I would be livid if they keep posting videos to support that.

Take your Fed love in the restroom and don’t bring it in every post you have to write.

Buzz off.
