Video: Is this the flukiest tennis shot ever?
Veteran Kim Clijsters hit a one in a million shot on her way to a shock defeat to Dutch minnow Aranxta Rus at the French Open yesterday.

Veteran Kim Clijsters hit a one in a million shot on her way to a shock defeat to Dutch minnow Aranxta Rus at the French Open yesterday.

World number two Clijsters lost out on a 3-6, 7-5, 6-1 scoreline to the emerging 20-year old, and although it was her first Grand Slam defeat in 15 outings, at least she will able to take from the game the memory of the luckiest shot of her career and probably ever seen in the game.

40-0 down and trailing 2-1 in the third set, Clijsters needed a lucky break and boy did she get it when her return from a fierce Rus serve struck the net cord, bounced onto the top of the netpost and rebounded back into play for one of the most bizarre points ever seen in the sport.

Clijsters sheepishly held out a hand of apology while a bemused Rus couldn’t help but smile at her misfortune, but fortunately for her it had little effect on the rest of the game as she went on to complete one of the shocks of the tournament so far.
