As the year draws to close, Baseline remembers the shots that showed off players skills, tenacity, and luck all through the season. From backhands to volleys to two-minute rallies, these are the best hot shots of 2017.
Unreal point between RBA and Muller earlier today. One of the best of the year. pic.twitter.com/kgQZJlpjLo— José Morgado (@josemorgado) February 10, 2017
Roberto Bautista Agut and Gilles Muller played one of the best points of the year in the quarterfinals of Sofia. They battled through a 31-shot-rally, giving the audience a cat-and-mouse show.
Eventually Agut won the point with a passing shot winner, putting him in the lead. He would win the match, 7-5, 7-6 (5).
