Known for her powerful aces and shotmaking, former World No.1 Karolina Pliskova switched things up in impressive style as the defending Internazionli BNL d'Italia champion, helping her collect your votes to top the ballot for September 2020's Shot of the Month presented by Cambridge Global Payments.

Taking on fellow Czech and 2019 Roland Garros finalist Marketa Vondrousova, Pliskova was a clear contrast to her countrywoman's all-court craft, yet it was the three-time WTA Ace Leader who threw in a wicked backhand slice to turn defense to offense as she eased to a straight-set victory and a second straight final at the Foro Italico.

Though she ultimately finished runner-up to Simona Halep, she nonetheless proved her mettle to win September's Shot of the Month.
