Roger Federer's Between-The-Legs Shot Against Richard Gasquet (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Even when Roger Federer is struggling, he still manages to pull off moves that nobody else can make.

In the middle of Thursday's third round match against Richard Gasquet in the Italian Open, Federer got caught overstepping his forehand. But instead of making the necessary adjustments, Federer nonchalantly hit a between-the-legs shot and eventually won the point.

Unfortunately for the No. 3 ranked player in the world, Gasquet went on to win the match.

"I should never have lost," said Federer. "He knows how close he came to losing. I had multiple chances."
