    Agreed that there was a bit of luck involved with those two shots, but there is still skill involved in the player's decision to get a racquet on the ball. While they cannot control an absolute 100% of the shot and what it'll be like to the mm, the fact that they had the skill to make contact is the defining detail here.

    Sometimes, making contact with the ball is all that is needed to make a great shot.

    Luck doesn't deter from the fact that it's a great shot - it should still be on the list.

    Dimitrov's winner was outrageous.

    Actually, I belieive that Dimitrov actually could repeat his trick-shot in a similar situation (he likes to do such things), while Janowic was simply lucky, nothing more than that.

    Totally disagree. Both men showed exceptional racquet control to hit such great shots under pressure and out of position. Good hands.

    What a poor list from ATP, only Haas, Federer, Djokovic, Dimitrov deserve to be on the list, where's the Fed-Murray Shanghai one?
