Watch: Dustin Brown pulls off behind-the-back shot

Thursday February 11th, 2016

German tennis player Dustin Brown pulled off what will likely be one of the best shots of the year on Wednesday, perfectly executing a no-look, behind-the-back volley to steal a point.

The shot came in the first round of the Bergamo Challenger, a lower-level tournament in Italy. Brown’s opponent, Aldin Setkic, seemed to have the upper hand, hitting a forehand shot that went zipping behind Brown. But instead of giving up the point, Brown whipped his racket around and connected with the ball, placing it in the opposite side of the court. 

Brown would actually end up losing the match. 

Brown is currently No. 104 in the ATP rankings and has been ranked as high as No. 78.
