the DA Says:

For balance you should have included the video of the failed majorly ;) Both were entertaining in their own way.

Gypsy Gal Says:

This is incredible,not many could pull this off with such ease,Roger does indeed make tennis look effortless….

elina Says:

Should show the other two where he failed miserably. Had no impact on the match IMO.

Cool shot when it works though.

Tennisfan Says:

Lmao at the salty people asking for the video of the failed one.

Wog Boy Says:

I have seen either of them and they looked equally interesting, in the failed ones he looked like a deer caught in the headlights, I guess Rafa fans enjoyed them better, I enjoyed either.

elina Says:

I really think they are all cool won or lost.

For many players, I think it does what it is intended to. I doubt it affects Nadal. Doubt Murray would be bothered either.

Great creativity from Roger!

elina Says:

Oh, and there were two failed attempts, not one.

Wog Boy Says:

…and you don’t have to be salty to ask for the other one (failed), just not Federer fan and there is few of them on TX, I for example admire quolity of Rafa’s passing shots. So yes, I don’t see anything wrong with asking for failed one to be posted too, the DA right, just for the sake of balance.

jalep Says:

Well, I really like watching Rafa bloopers — not nearly enough of those and his reaction.

There was a Federer vid (think from Cincy) that showed reactions of Andy, ect. after being trolled by saber — pretty funny.
