Gael Monfils is known as a big risk taker on the ATP, hitting shots other guys wouldn’t dream of trying. In a match this week at the BMW open, Monfils pulled off this incredible blind, backhand winner.
His opponent, Jürgen Melzer, was so duped by the shot he didn’t bother moving. Or maybe he’s just lazy, who knows. Monfils went on to win in straight sets 6-3, 6-3.
