Nice work Kei! Apart from the mental weakness dropping the third set 5-7.

Good to be punching above the current ranking and making the last 16 though.

”return” usually means the return of serve shot, so that would mislead.

Not really. That shot is called a "return of serve." A "return" is usually a shot hit back during a rally from an opponent's aggressive shot, like a volley from the net. In my experience, it always refers to a ground-stroke.

Saw it. The shot itself is still cheap to me. The effort and reaction to get there is impressive. I guess when I heard read "unreal shot" I was just expecting something else. If it said "unreal return" maybe my reaction would have been different.

Not a tennis fan but I personally don't see what the big deal is. Actually looks like a cheap shot seeing as it didn't go over the net and there was no way for his opponent to return it.
