World number four Agnieszka Radwanska has pulled off one of the best tennis shots we have seen in a while at the Sony Open in Miami.
In the quarter-finals she defeated Kirsten Flipkens 4-6, 6-4, 6-2 and this is easily the shot of the match, if not the shot of the entire tournament.
It has everything a great tennis shot should have. The shot Radwanska originally plays puts her in a great position to win the point and then it all changes. The deflection off the top of the net, the blind swivel, the perfectly delicate back-hand giving your opponent no chance. Of course there is an element of luck but there is also a significant chunk of skill and technique that has to be admired.
The look on Flipkens’ face and disgusted manner in which she throws her racket on the floor makes the clip even more enjoyable.
Agnieszka Radwanska faces Serena Williams tonight in the semi-finals and is the 9/2 outsider to upset the tournament favourite.
