In what surely has to be a contender for shot of the year, Tunisian veteran Jaziri somehow pulled off an extraordinary tweener volley winner from the baseline in the second set of his 7-6(4) 2-6 6-4 victory over Zverev to reach the Beijing quarter-finals.


Zverev’s half-volley pick-up was incredible in itself, but Jaziri’s stunning tweener in response was something special - and the German couldn’t help but applaud the shot after it flew past him.

Hotshot aside, Jaziri earned one of the biggest wins of his career to advance into the ATP 500 China Open quarter-finals.

The 34-year-old has now registered three top five wins in 2018, following on from his wins over fourth-ranked players Grigor Dimitrov in Dubai and Marin Cilic in Istanbul.

Jaziri takes on Hamburg champion Nikoloz Basilashvili for a spot in the Beijing semi-finals on Friday night.
