Fans have voted Alexander Zverev’s game-changing forehand down the line winner in his Halle semi-final clash with Richard Gasquet as their favourite hot shot in the second quarter #NextGenATP Shining Shot poll.
On a must win point at 2-3, 30/30 in the deciding set of the contest, Zverev hooked a forehand winner down the line and into the corner, hit from well behind the baseline. He would go on to win the match and finish runner-up to Roger Federer in the final of the Gerry Weber Open.
Zverev’s shot won with 45 per cent of the vote over a five-day period. A close second was Mikael Ymer’s ‘tweener lob winner, hit at an ATP Challenger Tour event in Bastad, with 41 per cent of the vote.
Tommy Paul, Akira Santillan and Frances Tiafoe rounded out the second quarter hot shot selection, with seven per cent, four per cent and two per cent of the vote respectively.
