Oof, that’s amazing. The video below will frustrate all of you weekend hackers (is that the term for tennis?), as top seed Andy Roddick dispatches Milos Raonic on a diving forehand down the line on match point to win the Regions Morgan Keegan Championships on Sunday. Final: 7-6(7), 6-7(11), 7-5.

World No. 8 Roddick became the third active player on the ATP World Tour to win 30 or more career singles titles, joining Roger Federer (67) and Rafael Nadal (43). He also became the eighth American-born player to accomplish the feat.

“That’s the best shot I’ve ever hit in my life, considering the circumstance,” said Roddick.
