It goes without saying that Roger Federer is a complete player. There’s literally nothing he can’t do. On Tuesday, the Swiss tennis ace made a good case in point when he showed off he’s got skills beyond tennis too.

Up against countryman Stan Wawrinka in the quarter-finals of the French Open, Federer nailed a squash-like forehand. It happened after he was required to run back to the baseline, as he responded by slicing the return off the forehand (CLICK HERE TO WATCH).

Ali Farag, did you see that?

If that was not enough to prove he’s still playing the best tennis of his life, the 37-year-old defied age by stretching out of his skin to surprise Wawrinka at the net (CLICK HERE TO WATCH).

Federer, the No. 3 seed, went on to clinch a 7-6 4-6 7-6 6-4 win and set up a blockbuster semi-final date with arch-rival Rafael Nadal of Spain.

Nadal leads the head-to-head record against Federer by 23-15.

Who you got winning?
