Federer dazzles with between-the-legs shot

Roger Federer describes Monday's between-the-legs winner against Brian Dabul:

"I mean, I knew I hit it I had good contact, perfect speed and hit and everything. I kind of like it when the ball like gets away from me a little bit, so I hit it with it's lower, because then I can generate more pace off it. The thing is, by the time I turn around it's already in the corner of the court on the other side, so I'm almost looking for the ball first up. And then I just I'm not even sure if I saw the bounce or not, and then obviously the crowd gave me the answer, which was kind of good."
