It was the point against Makarova during the Rogers Cup. I can't embed it here because WTA has not uploaded the video on their YT channel yet but you can view the shot at the following highlight:

congrats Aga

Problem is that WTA thinks Web poll votes are 100 % relevant and reliable for taking award. not just in this poll also other polls.

No doubt about that, but the public seems to have a taste for random improvisations and trick-shoots.

I didn't even think this was Aga's best shot of the year, much less the best WTA shot.

Re: Agnieszka Radwanska wins 2014 WTA Shot of the Year!

I'm surprised the shot I thought should've won (and several others from what I've seen on Twitter/here) was in last place. Her court coverage was insane.

Congrats to Aga though, it was a very nicely done shot and shows how she hasn't got all the power but her shot choice usually works in her favour. Another player probably would've finished it at the approach.

Re: Agnieszka Radwanska wins 2014 WTA Shot of the Year!

I'm not really sure if it was shot of the year, but that backhand overhead smash is very tricky to pull off right.

Aga had better shots at an ITF tournament called Australian Open

Re: Agnieszka Radwanska wins 2014 WTA Shot of the Year!

How many players are able to make that overhead backhand on the current tour? Is there a thread about it? From the past I can recall Goolagong, Navratilova, Mandlikova, Sabatini, Novotna, Mauresmo, Henin... just to name a few.
