Here’s your roundup of the five most interesting things I’m enjoying or thinking about this week.
1.) Federer’s Magic Backhand
During his round of 16 match at the Swiss Indoors in Basel, Federer hit a perfectly placed on-the-run backhand flick for a winner against his opponent Radu Albot. It’s well worth a watch if you didn’t already catch it.
2.) Best Behind-the-Back Shots
Catch up on TennisTV’s compilation of the best behind-the-back trick-shots and winners. Which one’s your favorite?
3.) Murray’s Comeback Title
It’s been more than two years since Andy Murray’s last title in February of 2017. This week he changed that with an emotional win against Stan Wawrinka in three sets at the European Tennis Open in Belgium. Andy returned to the tour back in June, five months after his hip surgery.
4.) Stan’s Touch of Genius
Although Stan didn’t manage to stop Andy Murray in the finals of the Europen Tennis Open, he did play some phenomenal tennis. Here’s a look at one moment early in the match when he hit a brilliant touch volley completely out of Murray’s reach.

5.) Nishikori’s Season-Ending Surgery
World number eight, Kei Nishikori decided to undergo a small surgery on his right arm to remove two small bone spurs, which will put him out for the remainder of the season.
He’s struggled with irritation in his elbow since the French Open, and unfortunately, rest and rehab haven’t solved the problem. Early signs point to a successful surgery.
