Some light entertainment ........

Post by lags72 on Wed 07 Feb 2018, 8:46 am

Things are a little quiet on the Tour, so perhaps those who haven’t previously seen it will enjoy this brief throwback to a dramatic incident in the heat of a Djokovic - Federer clash.

For fear of accusations of bias, I make no comment (though can’t help but be impressed at the editing skills on show here .........)

This is very funny and, yes, very well edited. I reckon Djoko himself would have a good laugh at it.
   Perhaps something similar could be done with the very strange serving action of Cilic in which he bounces the ball a few times and then looks up as if to ask his opponent: "Are you still there?" before looking down followed by more ball-bouncing and finally....serving.

Glad you liked it sfp (and yes there is surely one waiting to be made with Cilic !)

Loved the bit where we see Federer calmly taking a drink whilst relaxing on his changeover chair.

Did they cut out some of the bounces there? Seemed a bit quicker than Novak’s usual service action.

Liked the shirt change and the umpire's phone call.

Obviously need to do one of Rafa's OCD and of Murray shouting at himself. Not sure what Fed's most parody-able trait would be - perhaps some of the naff outfits?

No, am really struggling to think of any on-court ‘mannerisms’ by Federer that would provide material for parody in any way.

Off-court ..... maybe some of the outfits, as you say - which I think most of us (and, quite possibly, Fed himself ?) would prefer to forget. White jacket and cardigan spring to mind ...... not sure if there are any others. More recently there was the kilt of course (and that was on-court) .... but he was pushed into that by the Scottish audience at Andy M’s charity/exho match.

With Federer you could have a collection of him crying, crying when he has won and crying when he has lost.

Separate to this - "ten most difficult shots perfected by Roger". Is Federer the best in terms of the armoury of shots he can play?
