Not only did Bob Bryan pull off a between-the-legs shot this weekend. And not only did he do it in the third round of the U.S. Open.
He did it when he and his brother, Mike, were two points away from elimination.
Talk about confidence.
After losing the first set of their match, the Bryan brothers were in a second-set tiebreaker with Santiago Gonzalez and Scott Lipsky. With the tiebreaker at 5-5, Gonzalez knocked a ball right at Bob Bryan, who was standing in the dubles alley. Without hesitation, Bryan reached his racquet between his legs and popped the ball back over the net. He won the point one shot later with a cross-court forehand winner.
"There were 20 different options," Mike Bryan said. "He picked the 21st."
The Bryans went on to win the set and the match.
"If I was a coach, I'd tell my student never to do that," Bob said of his shot. "Or never do it again. It's something you don't want to try at home."
