#3. Andy Murray, 2010 Australian Open

Andy Murray was the first one to find a gap between the umpire's chair and the net, 4 years before Djokovic did. This one is definitely the better shot of the 2 in terms of difficulty. Murray was serving for the match against a young Marin Cilic at the 2010 Australian Open when he was forced to pull off a blinder.

Returning an angled serve from him, Cilic hit a stinging forehand crosscourt and throwing his opponent out of balance. But, the Brit steadied himself instantly and ran after the ball which was dropping quickly.

From nearly 5 feet outside the court, he dug the ball out just in time and stabbed it back into the court, piercing the minute gap between the umpire's chair and the net. The crowd first went wild for Cilic's return but it was chaos after Andy made the shot. Murray's reaction riled the crowd up even more.
