MIAMI, FL, USA - Exactly a year after hitting the famous spinning-behind-the-back-backhand-winner (or whatever we're calling it), Agnieszka Radwanska pulled off some similar magic at the Sony Open Tennis on Wednesday afternoon, hitting a similarly-magical shot at the Premier Mandatory event.

On March 26, 2013, taking on Kirsten Flipkens in the quarterfinals on Stadium court, Radwanska hit this shot, which would spread like wildfire around the web and get named Shot Of The Year.

"It was all so fast, it was really just one second to react," Radwanska said that day. "The ball hit the net cord and changed direction and I couldn't play a normal backhand, so I just turned around and did it. It was a bit of luck but I had no choice - I just put my racquet on it and that was it! It was pretty funny."

On March 26, 2014, playing Dominika Cibulkova, also in the Sony Open Tennis quarterfinals and also on Stadium court, Radwanska hit this shot (which you just watched above). Could history repeat itself?

"I think with the wind, you can see a shot like that," Radwanska said after the match. "It was no choice though. I was trying to do whatever I could to hit that ball in, and so then it was like that!"

The World No.3 was asked about pulling off that similar trick shot the year before.

"Yes, and on the same court, huh?" she said with a smile.
