“Do you approve, Federer?” – Swiatek after her around-the-net post winner
The world No 1 helped Poland beat Kazakhstan 4-1 in Group B action
World No 1 Iga Swiatek put in her claim for ‘Shot of the Year’ honours as the Pole hit a remarkable around-the-net post winner during Poland’s mixed doubles match against Kazakhstan at the United Cup.
Swiatek, who had already won her singles on Saturday, was partnering Hubert Hurkacz and the Poles were taking on Zhibek Kulambayeva/ Grigoriy Lomakin when she hit the shot.
Later, Swiatek shared the video of the shot on her Twitter account, tagging Roger Federer, who is known to hit such shots in the past, and asking if he approved.
Poland will take on Switzerland, led by Stan Wawrinka and Belinda Bencic, on Monday.
