Agnieszka Radwanska hits a 'tweener

Surprise, surprise. Agnieszka Radwanska hit yet another hot shot.

During a 6-2, 6-4 win over Ana Ivanovic in the fourth round of the French Open on Sunday, the world No. 4 raced back to execute a perfect "tweener" and won the point when her opponent hit the reply wide. The best thing about this 'tweener is that it wasn't a superfluous instance of showboating. That was the only shot she could have hit to get the ball back and she pulled it off on a dead sprint.

Rarely is Radwanska impressed by her own shot-making. This time, though, she threw a finger in the air in celebration and waved her arms to enliven the sparse crowd.
