Archive footage shows the time Federer played a stunning tweener shot against the Frenchman in a clay court event.

The pair are locked together at one set apiece and are level at 4-4 in the third.

Gasquet unleashes one of his trademark one-handed forehands into the body of Federer during a long drawn out rally.

Federer slightly misjudges the direction and finds himself in a spot of bother.

Not that he’s flustered. The 19-time Grand Slam champion simply lets the ball go between his legs before he hits a tweener back.

Gasquet followed it up with a forehand reply before Federer unleashed with a mighty response of his own.

His heavy top-spinning forehand zips off the court and Gasquet can only put his return into the net.
