Roger Federer "got lucky" with tweener lob

Seven-time Wimbledon champion Roger Federer admits that he "got lucky" when playing a tweener lob during his straight-sets win over Sam Querrey.

Roger Federer has insisted that he "got lucky" with a through-the-legs lob during his second-round win over Sam Querrey at Wimbledon.

The world number two, who is a seven-time champion at SW19, made the tweener during his straight-sets win on Centre Court yesterday.

The Swiss told reporters: "It all happens very quickly. I can't put it on super slow and go, All right, what's best? Through the legs, you're not sure if it's going to come short or high. I got lucky. I hit it perfect.

"Yeah, I felt like there was a chance, legitimate chance, to win the point. And it was fun. It just happened to be the right thing."

Federer faces Australia's Sam Groth in the third round.
