One of the stunning shots pulled off by Roger Federer, which left Nick Kyrgios and an entire stadium with their mouths wide open at the 2018 edition of the US Open, got animated on a YouTube channel dedicated to Federer and Nadal’s achievements.
Asked about the shot after the match ended, Kyrgios admitted it was an outstanding one. “I was trying to tell him that the shot wasn’t that good. No, it was almost unreal. Almost got to the point where I wanted him to start making shots like that, and I finally got it.
I was pretty happy with myself,” said Kyrgios with a smile on his face. Roger Federer also talked about his around-the-net shot during the post-match conference. “The funny thing about that shot was I didn’t think about it until I hit it.
On a doubles court you never do it but only do it on a court this size. There was a bit of luck, but also good feet. I went for it so I deserve it,” said Federer. For comparison, here is a short video showing the real-life point that took place during US Open’s 2018 edition.
