Best Answer

When Brian Dabul lobbed the ball to Roger Federer's side of the court, Federer happened to be at the net. He spun around to run toward the baseline, but a few steps before reaching the wall behind the court, and with his back to the net, Federer swatted the ball between his legs. It landed in a corner next to Dabul, who just raised his eyebrows and shrugged. It was the highlight of day one of the tournament at Flushing Meadows. Federer had made a nearly identical through-the-legs-with-his-back-to-the-court shot against Novak Djokovic in the 2009 US Open semifinals.
