There are not many certainties in life, but one of them is that we will never tire of seeing Roger Federer produce incredible, seemingly impossible shots on a tennis court.
The 37-year-old king of finesse has looked good in Paris so far and he needed to be to get past the in-form Kei Nishikori in the quarter-finals.
And, with shots like the one below, it’s not hard to see why the Japanese star seemed so perplexed.
Federer faces Novak Djokovic in the last four, and he’s painted himself as the underdog in the match, saying: “I want to play well.
“I want to try to win, obviously. I know he’s on a hot streak so I think it’s going to be tough.
“But nevertheless I think I’ve got nothing to lose.
“I also like this type of surface, I like playing indoors.
“Indoors has treated me very well, winning Rotterdam and Basel.
“I think I’m ready to do something, but clearly I have to play a lot of good tennis because those are the questions Novak asks of you.
“It’s not just maybe a serve here or there or a return here or there.
“He’s going to ask the question time and time again because he defends very well and he plays well on the offence and plus he’s serving consistently well at the moment so I think it’s going to be tough.”
