Although world No. 1 Rafael Nadal had to withdraw from the ATP Finals with a knee injury, there is plenty of exciting shotmaking from the stars. These were the best shots in London on Monday.
Nadal’s last blistering backhand of 2017
It was one of the Spaniard’s last big highlights of the year, as the world bids him adios until January (hopefully).
Goffin’s buggy-whipping bender
Defeating Nadal, 7-6 (5), 6-7 (4), 6-4 in London ranks as one of Goffin’s biggest career wins. He did his best impression of Nadal with his righty version of the whip shot up the line.
Quick hands winner
How about Ivan Dodig’s reflexes? Somehow he deadened the ball and gave it crazy backspin that buzzed back into the net. The biggest winners turned out to be the opposing team Lukasz Kubot and Marcelo Melo who have already clinched the doubles year-end No. 1 spot.
More doubles hustle
Is this tennis or the 110 meter high hurdles? Jamie Murray’s partner Bruno Soares "soared" into the air during a three-set loss to the Bryan brothers.
Dimitrov’s speed delivers
Grigor Dimitrov defeated Dominic Thiem and got props for his hands at the net, but he might have topped that effort with incredible hustle.
