Radwanska’s awesome through-the-legs shot

Agnieszka Radwanska is renowned as one of the best shot-makers on the women's tour, but the Pole outdid herself on Sunday.

The fourth seed beat former world number one Ana Ivanovic in their fourth-round match, and one of her winning shots was a joy to behold.

Down 2-6 3-4 in the second set, the serving Ivanovic thought she had done enough to lob Radwanska as she placed the ball at the back of the court.

But the speedy 24-year-old raced to the baseline before flicking the ball through her legs - and over the net - with an audacious "tweener" shot.

Ivanovic was stunned, and promptly skewed her follow-up wide. The Serb did manage to hold serve in that game, but she only delayed the inevitable as her opponent moved into the quarter finals.
