What happened, Rog?
Roger Federer and Grigor Dimitrov took the court at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday night for an exhibition event and as per the general "rules" of a proper tennis exhibition, things got a little nutty. Federer and Dimitrov entertained the crowd with a variety of trick shots and entertaining rallies, including this exchange of tweeners. We'll ignore that duffed forehand volley for now, Grigor.
But it was a kid from the stands that stole the show and hit the shot of the night. In the middle of the third set, Dimitrov ceded his racket to a courtside kid to play a point with Federer. After exchanging a few shots from the baseline, Federer chipped and charged into the net only to see a perfectly weighed lob go over his head and land just inside the baseline. That's one heck of a shot:
The Madison Square Garden exhibition always finds a way of picking a ringer from the crowd. Remember the little girl who teamed up with Juan Martin del Potro and dominated Rafael Nadal and Ben Stiller?
