Simona Halep is the first two-time winner of the WTA Shot of the Month award for 2019, presented by Cambridge Global Payments.

The Romanian star reached the final of the Mutua Madrid Open for the third time in her career this spring, and her patented brand of defense into offense earned your votes for the month's best hot shot. 

In her second round match against Johanna Konta, Halep was on the defensive for much of the point, but pulled off a flashy running forehand pass to beat the Brit at net en route to a 7-5, 6-1 win.

Final Results for May's Shot of the Month
