Watch: Roger Federer hits between-the-legs shot at Wimbledon

Thursday July 2nd, 2015

Roger Federer turns 34 next month, but he hasn't stopped dazzling on the court. 

Federer, who is looking to win his eighth career Wimbledon title, earned a straight sets victory over American Sam Querrey on Thursday, 6-4, 6-2, 6-2. A remarkable between-the-legs shot in the first set served as another reminder—not that we needed one—of Federer's brilliance, particularly at the All England Club. 

The shot came after a Querrey serve. The American volleyed the ball deep to Federer's forehand side, but Federer effortlessly returned the ball through his legs, lobbing it deep. Querrey's return attempt hit the net.
