Ladies and Gentlemen, the Greatest Shot in the History of Tennis

Not really a local, Dallas-y angle here. Other than the fact that I know you guys appreciate sports greatness when you see it.

And since this moment happened in the U.S. Open tennis semifinals while y'all were probably still high-fiving Cowboys 34, Bucs 21, perhaps you didn't see it.

Roger Federer is the greatest tennis player in history. And now - after this between-the-legs winner to set up match point Sunday afternoon - he owns the greatest shot in tennis history.

I'm speechless.
