Though she fell to eventual champion Wang Qiang in the semifinals of the Jiangxi Open, Magda Linette's court vision and perfect finish earned her your votes as July's Shot of the Month presented by Cambridge Global Payments.

The Polish No.2 had a career week in Nanchang, as she reached her first WTA semifinal in over a year as the No.3 seed at the Jinagxi Open.

In the third game of her semifinal match against No.2 seed Wang, she got the better of a protracted rally which began at the baseline, and ended as she smartly lofted a backhand lob over Wang's head after drawing the Chinese player into net with a deft backhand dropshot.

Watch the full point and Linette's lob again below!
