The between-the-legs shot in tennis is similar to the flop shot in golf. Yeah, it’s fun to watch, but there is a small percentage of something positive actually coming out of it. Well, unless you’re Roger Federer.

In the semifinals against Novak Djokovic, Federer was up 15-30 in the final game of the third set, hoping to break Novak to cruise to a three-set win and a spot in a Grand Slam final for the 17th time in the last 18 majors. Novak hit a drop shot, Federer ran in, and after getting it back over the net, Djokovic went for the lob. Federer ran it down, hitting a between the legs winner he called his best shot ever.
