Roger Federer, a Swiss professional tennis player, is currently ranked #2 in the worldwide men's ATP tennis rankings.

At one point he held the #1 spot for a men's record-setting 310 weeks (237 of which were consecutive). Only Steffi Graf at 377 weeks, Martina Navratilova at 332 weeks and Serena Williams at 319 weeks have more weeks at #1.


Now 37, there are some who may wonder whether he still has the magic that earned him the sport's respect.

None of those people will continue to doubt Federer's dominance, however, after seeing the incredible shot he made against Nick Kyrgios at the U.S. Open on September 1.

After seeing the clip, Twitter was absolutely in awe of Federer.

Kyrgios himself couldn't believe what had just happened.


Many are already calling it "the shot of the tournament."


Who knew you could go AROUND the net?


Federer is playing it pretty cool, however.


Just another day, another game of tennis, another miracle shot for Roger Federer.


As is almost always the case, Federer never let on to the difficulty of what he was doing.

Will Federer go all the way?

Only time will tell, but people won't be forgetting his show against Nick Kyrgios any time soon.

When visiting any foreign country, one should always be familiar with the laws and customs of the land.

After all, what might be generally accepted on your home turf, might be frowned upon, if not illegal, elsewhere.

For that matter, even locals might need a refresher course on what they can and can't do while at home.

Who doesn't love a good joke?

And one needn't be a professional comedian to always have a joke in their back pocket to make people laugh.

Particularly as there are certain types of jokes which are almost always guaranteed to elicit at least a tiny chuckle.

They could be knock-knock jokes, "little johnny" jokes, and of course the "yo mamma" jokes.

Though always teetering on the boundaries of good taste, the possibilities of jokingly insulting the mother of a friend, or foe, are endless, and more often than not, hilarious.

People Break Down Which TV Shows No One Else Seems To Remember

As a kid, I remember being obsessed (like obsessed) with David the Gnome and his fox Swift. I was tuned in daily to watch the adventures, get all misty eyed for the hurt animals the gnomes saved, and sobbed in abject wonder when the gnomes finally lived all 400 years of their gnome life and transitioned into the trees that make up the woods they live in.

The trees are their ancestors, y'all! The treeees! They protect the trees because they're family. Trees grow intertwined because they were so in love when they were gnomes.

Fam! This show was everything ... except memorable for other people because I was in my 30s talking to someone from another country before I met the first person who remembered this show.

Which, honestly, is kind of insulting to gnomes and trees.
