nah, it's clear on the second shot, if was real the ball would travel way faster

why couldn't it be real?

sorry, in this case i really do think that it's easier for world class tennis player federer to be able to hit a tennis ball at a target (and it wouldn't have to be at match speed) than to do all that in post production tbh.

im not saying it couldn't, i just feel it's fake.
he didnt even warmed up, is on a suit and hits it twice?
very unlikely imo

the ball speed argument earlier might not be the best, like Phil says he doesn't need to hit lightspeed etc, ill give it that, but something doesn't feel right there.
i been wrong before no problemos etc

it wasn't clear to me that the ball made contact with the bottle, the lighting was bad, there was no slomo action replay. However I'm inclined to believe it wasn't faked.

it's fake, notice there's a corner behind the dude, after the 2 hits the balls are practically 1 next to the other, only way i could see that happening would have to be a flat wall parallel to the dudes back and the ball would have to be hit at half speed

here's a couple of examples of the infinite possible trajectories under such conditions
Image it's fake don't argue.
