It’s one of the most ridiculous tennis shots you’ll ever see.
In his U.S. Open match against Marinko Matosevic Tuesday in Flushing Meadows, N.Y., Roger Federer hit a between-the-legs shot that hit his opponent in the back, and even made Michael Jordan laugh.
Safe to say that the 33-year-old Federer still has it.
According to the New York Times, “Jordan was there to see how Federer would hold up wearing his brand of sneakers, a hybrid modeled after the Air Jordan 3, transformed for tennis (complete with Federer’s own logo) in what could be considered a cross-promotional first.”
Matosevic was distracted by Jordan’s presence during the match, even shouting, “I want to be like Mike,” late in the third set. Instead, Federer rolled, 6-3, 6-4, 7-6 (4).
