VIDEO: Malek Jaziri hits tweener winner that even opponent applauds
Here at Tennis365, we unashamedly love a tweener. It’s a guilty pleasure for which we will not be apologising.
On Thursday, Benoit Paire treated us to a brilliant example of tennis’ most outrageous shot when he hit an airborne tweener winner against Kei Nishikori at the Japan Open.
Well, it seems to be catching across Asia, but cause on Friday Malek Jaziri did something perhaps even more special.
It seemingly wasn’t enough for the Tunisian to simply beat world number five and second seed Alexander Zverev, he had to showboat too.
Mind, Zverev himself seemed to have nothing but appreciation for this particular piece of magic.
Showtime from Jaziri! 🎉
