SUPER TENNIS!!! Federer v Blake ● 3R US Open 2003 Highlights

**Best full highlight reel on Youtube **

Whack-a-mole tennis!!!

This, my friends, is what tennis should fucking look like!

No more compromising, no more playing paddy cake, no more testing out. And certainly no more keeping the ball in play until the end of times.

If you leave all of that out, and I do mean all of it, then what’s left is this match: heavenly button bashing tennis. The match up Federer v Blake has the attacking tennis gods stamp of approval written all over it. Even their brazen haircuts resemble the gutsy terrier like mentality.

It’s sad to realise that this kind of play in 2016 is as dead and buried as serve & volley was in 2003. It’s facing extinction. I don’t know what we can do about it. Do we need to cross-breed these types of players? Perhaps. Make the courts faster again and rewind racket technology? I don’t know, but I’ll do whatever it takes for a 100 mph forehand down the line on the dead run to get the reward it so thoroughly deserves. It’s not too much to ask is it? Sometimes it’s okay to have the cake and eat it too. I’m afraid though those days will never return, so we’ll have to drink the Kool-Aid on this one. Even if it’s hard to swallow.

But don’t let me get you down. For now, let us sit back. Pop some popcorn, reminisce to better tennis times and let these guys go about their business.
