Poland’s Iga Swiatek made the shot of the event on Saturday night in Brisbane, the World No.1 going around the net post to make a crowd-pleasing winner that instantly went viral on social media and eventually drew the attention of Roger Federer.

Federer’s take? “That was crazy.”

Polish Captain Agnieszka Radwanska, nicknamed “The Ninja” during her career because of her ability to pull of mind-bending hot shots, weighed in as well, telling Swiatek that bigger and better things could happen if she continues to push the envelope.

“For sure that was a good one,” she said, adding: “But you cannot really say the best because you want to do even better, right?”

Swiatek’s reply?


Poland defeated Kazakshtan 4-1, as Swiatek and Hubert Hurkacz defeated Lomakin and Kulambayeva 6-3, 6-4.

Poland will face Switzerland with first place in Group B on the line, beginning on Monday in Brisbane.
