Is Roger Federer the master of the amazing and elegant? It appears he certainly is. Take a look at the jumping overhead he played against Roddick at the Basel Open in 2002. Both, Novak and Rafa, could make that shot, but neither would look so elegant while making it.

It’s a miracle that Roger could carry that brand of tennis beyond 2005 and survive.
