Agnieszka Radwanska Hits Behind-The-Back Winner Against Kirsten Flipkens (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Agnieszka Radwanska was in a difficult position to return Kirsten Flipkens' backhanded laser down the line during the second set of their Sony Open Quarterfinals match in Miami, Fla. The 24-year-old from Poland attempted to chase it down, but the ball grazed the net, causing her to run past it.

That didn't matter.

The fourth-ranked women's tennis player in the world managed to turn herself around and flick a no-look, behind-the-back winner across the court.

Flipkens was left standing along the baseline with her racquet on the ground, seemingly stunned that she had lost the point.

Radwanska went on to win the match 4-6, 6-4, 6-2.

Some on Twitter quickly declared the highlight as a candidate for shot of the year.
