Nick Kyrgios is into the second round of Wimbledon after beating Radek Stepanek in four sets on Tuesday, a win that included perhaps the most impressive shot of the tournament so far. 

In the third set, with Stepanek serving, Kyrgios pulled off the rare tweener lob winner. After Stepanek rushed the net, Kyrgios went between the legs and lofted the ball just over the frame of Stepanek’s racket. The ball landed on the baseline.  

Watch the shot below.
