Dustin Brown is best known as the man who beat Rafael Nadal at Wimbledon last year, with the German’s dreadlocks and eccentric style making him a memorable character.
The 31-year-old has produced another piece of brilliance, albeit not at quite as lofty a setting as the All England Club.
Up against Aldin Setkic in a Bergamo Challenger match in Italy, Brown unleashed what has been dubbed by some as “the shot of the year” and by an excitable few as “the best shot ever”. We’re not convinced it quite hits those heights, but this behind-the-back volley certainly is impressive…
A raised hand after hitting the winner suggests that even Brown feels a little embarrassed that came off.
