7 of the craziest tennis shots you’ll ever see

7 of the craziest tennis shots you’ll ever see

By Janet Kwan

The hard court tennis season is in full swing and we dug into the archives for a sample of crazy tennis shots.

Some require skill, others a little luck. There are plenty to choose from but we’ve narrowed it down to our favourites:

The Tweener

Roger Federer doing what only Roger Federer could do to get to match point.

The Around-The-Netter

Warning: Don’t try this at home. Andy Murray has been playing tennis longer than you have.

The Hustle

Canada’s own Milos Raonic gets a spot on our list with this show of agility.

The 360

Kirsten Flipkens was no match for Agnieszka Radwanska’s cat-like reflexes.

The Post

Kim Clijsters gets a little help from the net post.

The Didn’t- See-That-Coming

Nick Kyrgios gives Rafael Nadal a little surprise. In the form of a trick shot.

Honourable mention

Sometimes, even the ball crew makes great plays.

History will be made in 2016 when Rio de Janeiro, Brazil hosts the Games of the XXXI Olympiad, marking the first time that a South American country will welcome the world to an Olympic Games. It is also just the third time that the Games will be held in the southern hemisphere, following Melbourne 1956 and Sydney 2000.
