Spanish player hits behind the back winner at US Open

Veteran Tommy Robredo showed why he continues to be a magician on tour.

With the US Open officially here, cue the outstanding shots that we all will see over the next two weeks of tennis at the year's final Slam. And already on day one of the tournament, Spanish veteran Tommy Robredo has thrown the gauntlet down on "shot of the tournament" honors with this nifty behind the back winner.

It was the capper of a satisfying day for Robredo, who went on to defeat German journeyman Michael Berrer 6-2, 6-2, 6-4. It also gives Yoshihito Nishioka's behind the back jaw dropping winner from a few weeks ago stern competition as well.
