At 3, He Practiced With Rafael Nadal. At 6, He Hits His Backhand Like Roger Federer

While many have been complaining about the lack of one-handed backhands in tennis, a video of a six-year old hitting a terrific one-handed backhand is making waves on social media. The six year old is Ethan and the video of him hitting his perfect one handed backhand was put up by Ethan's father David Lax on Instagram and is now going viral on the tennis social media circuit.

This is not Ethan's first brush with fame online... A few years ago, when he was three years old Ethan was on holiday with his family in Nadal's home city of Manacor when the legend spotted the young fan after his practise session, inviting him for a hit around on court.

While he was a Nadal fan then, his backhand is surely more like Federer. Take a look at the video yourself.
