VIDEO: He’s Still Got It! Roger Federer Pulls Off Outrageous Trick Shot At Halle Open

Roger Federer proved he’s still got it after pulling off an outrageous trick shot at the Gerry Weber Open in Halle last night.

The 33-year-old Swiss legend rediscovered some vintage form during the tight tussle, as he was pushed all the way by Germany’s Philipp Kohlschreiber, eventually prevailing 7-6, 6-3-7-6 in a gruelling match lasting over two hours.

one of the highlights was a ridiculous behind-the-back lob from the 17-time Grand Slam winner.

The lob was notably special as he appeared to outrun the ball before thrusting his racquet behind his back and lobbing Kohlschreiber, resulting in him winning the point.

The top seed at the tournament, Federer has won seven titles at Halle and will be vying for his eighth Wimbledon title later this month.

But if he continues to produce moments of magic like this in two weeks’ time you wouldn’t bet against the old master pulling it out of the bag.

You can see Federer’s insane lob in the video below.
