Notes on Federer’s ‘trick’ video.

Posted by tennisplanet on August 29, 2010

The clip has drawn more than 5 million views on YouTube.

“I couldn’t believe the amount of hits I got,” Federer said Saturday. “I’m happy, then, that so many people have seen it, liked it, and debated about it. I was shocked.”

He said it took “one or two takes … five, 10 minutes, and that was it. It was at one of the shoots I did after Wimbledon in Zurich, and we had a fun time doing it.”

Andy Murray, twice a runner-up to Federer in Grand Slam finals, was asked about the clip’s authenticity.

“You think it was real? Is that right?” Murray replied, smiling.

Then Murray noted that he liked the video, before adding: “There’s not a chance it’s real, though.”

Defending U.S. Open champion Kim Clijsters also was asked Saturday whether she thinks it’s legit.

“Let me just say that I would not hold that thing on my head even if it was Roger Federer,” Clijsters said. “There’s your answer.”

    Kim — that’s exactly what I thought.

    and after watching him at the Ashe Kids day where he only managed to hit 6 large ( much larger than a coke can) targets in 30 seconds — it’s definitely fake.
