DUBAI, UAE - Just days after throwing down the WTA Shot Of The Month gauntlet to trick shots queen Agnieszka Radwanska, World No.2 Angelique Kerber produced yet another highlight-worthy piece of brilliance at the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships - and this time she even went right handed for it!

"I don't think [I've ever hit a right-handed volley before]," Kerber laughed in her post-match press conference. "I think this point -- yeah, I have no idea. I just react, so it was just maybe a little bit luck, as well."
She added, "I'm naturally right handed. Maybe that helps me in this point."
On Tuesday, Kerber's 26-shot rally against Mona Barthel prompted the German to muse out loud about displacing perennial hot-shot winner Radwanska, who not only took home January's WTA Shot Of The Month but also owns the WTA Shot Of The Year Award for the last four years.

Radwanska was game and readily accepted the challenge on Twitter:

But will it be enough for Kerber to dethrone Radwanska and claim February WTA Shot Of The Month? Stay tuned?
