She was a human highlight reel in a run to her first career WTA final on one of the biggest stages, and you rewarded Ons Jabeur for it: the Tunisian is 2018's final winner of the WTA Shot of the Month award presented by Cambridge Global Payments.

Facing Daria Kasatkina in the final of the Kremlin Cup in Moscow, the qualifier was looking to pull off her eighth win of the week and shock the world to win her first career title, and nearly pulled it off as she opened up a big lead in the match.

Though the Tunisian fell short in three marathon sets, she pulled off this stunning behind-the-back dropshot early in the second set to earn the final hottest shot of the season.
