She's one of the best at turning defense into offense, and thanks to some quick hands in Rome, Venus Williams earned WTA Shot of the Month in May.
Down a set to Garbiñe Muguruza in the quarterfinals at the Internazionali BNL d'Italia in Rome but on serve in the second set, Williams pulled off a stunning reactionary lob off the forehand at the baseline - putting the attacking Muguruza on the defensive, before quickly finishing the point off with a crunching forehand winner.
