So we had Amr Shabana a few days ago concluding a perfect tournament, and producing an incredible double fake against James Willstrop in the semi-final. I have been reminded then by some attentive readers that in fact, Shabana's shot is only the second best ever double fake, as the very best has been produced by Jonathon Power about nine years ago. Well, I knew that shot from Power, but I thought to remember that it was an exhibition match, as Martin Heath, just before Power's lizard shot, made himself two cork-screw lobs (the second one even on a volley!), so it was three exhibition-like shots in a row, but, as I realize now, in a real competitive match. The image quality is horrible as it is dating almost a decade, but latest in the replay from the frontwall camera point of view you will understand the complexity of the faking. And listen how amazed the co-commentator, the great Jonah Barrington himself was!
Note, even if the image quality is even worse, the second rally where, at 1:08, Power shows another double fake, probably a less spectacular one but still so crazy! Faking first the backhand and then hitting a forehand with unbelievable dexterity.
