Roger Federer made light work of Benjamin Becker, his first-round opponent in Dubai, and when even his between-the-leg "tweener" shots were coming off, it's not hard to see why.

Federer romped to the first set, but was having to work a little harder during the second.

With Federer serving at 2-3 down, Becker thought he'd bested his opponent with a lob.

But the 17-times Grand Slam turned the tables with a lob of his own—through the legs, his back turned on the court.

And Federer duly went on to wrap up the match 6-1, 6-4.
