During the all-American clash on day 1 of the Ultimate Tennis Showdown (UTS) Los Angeles, Ben “The Mountain” Shelton managed to pull off a miraculous winner against the world number 10 player, F rances “Big Foe” Tiafoe, on July 21, Friday. The 20-year-old showcased his natural talent and athleticism to make the impossible point seem possible, which left him and his opponent in stitches too.

UTS is known as an individual tennis league, which features eight players divided into two groups, playing round-robin matches to determine the semi-finalists, and then, the champion, in just three days.

Notably, the aforementioned moment occurred during the first quarter, when Frances Tifoe got a lucky net cord, which allowed him the chance to take an easy smash into the open court. Then, in a last ditch effort, Ben Shelton, squatted down while keeping his racquet in an upright position, to lob the ball over his opponent's head to win the magical point.
