Yeah but you don't see Fed throwing the ball.  A serve movement and the can attached to a string, boom!

Hmm tempted to watch it frame by frame and see Think but that would be really sad lol It could well be doctored and set up but I do think it's the type of thing Roger could actually do...look at his shot placement on the court! And also hate to say but damn he looks good in this Whistle

Everyone appears to be acting, everything is carefully planned but filmed to look casual and impromptu.

I reckon he could do that. He'd have to hit the ball perfectly each time. It's not impossible, I mean, the top players can put the ball where they want time and time again, at high speeds too......

The setup is faked, but the actual shot looks real enough.

Here's an interview where they asked fed about the shot, and just kinda leaves you hanging,

Q. Can I ask you about a serve that you didn’t make tonight, but that’s obviously being talked about a lot on the Internet. Is that for real?
ROGER FEDERER: Oh, that thing? Yeah. Well, there’s a lot of the debate at the moment, you know. You know how it is with magicians. They don’t tell how their tricks work, you know. (Smiling.)
I don’t do it that much, but, yeah, it was shot in one piece and it was – the guy took a chance. (Smiling.) It worked out. I’m happy.
....

Q. Back to the video for a second, have you ever done anything like that before, knocked something off somebody’s head?
ROGER FEDERER: Um, well, I had to do it before so I knew I could do it, otherwise it was risky for him, right?
But no — what was the – what did you mean exactly?

Q. Knocking the thing off the guy’s head.
ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, it worked out. I’ve done it before.

Q. So it was definitely real?
ROGER FEDERER: Not saying that. A magician doesn’t tell how his tricks work, so… (Laughter.)

I remember a similar reaction to Derren Brown's Lotto prediction show.  Whether it's real or not, shedloads of publicity is garnered so their work is done.

The woman who gets up from her chair at the end looks quite bored.  Either she's not a Fed fan or she's been sitting watching them do a thousand takes!
