Trick shots have had a significant impact on modern tennis, with the majority of new and future players eager to use them while on tour. The tweener was one of the trick shots that was particularly difficult to perform on a tennis court.

During his first-round matchup against Lorenzo Sonego at the Moselle Open, Marton Fucsovics pulled off an amazing tweener.

Guillermo Vilas, a great Argentinean, devised the trick shot, which became popular after Roger Federer utilized it against Novak Djokovic in the 2009 US Open semi-finals.

Since then, the Swiss Maestro has employed the tweener to great advantage against a number of different opponents. Despite the fact that spectators appreciated the attempts, the tweener tended to go wide.

Marton Fucsovics hits a fantastic tweener

However, when a player executes flawlessly, it is always a sight to witness. Marton Fucsovics of Hungary hit a superb tweener against Sonego in the Moselle Open.

Despite the fact that Fucsovics lost the match to the Italian in straight sets, he managed to keep the match exciting throughout.

The footage was shared on Instagram by Tennis TV with the comment “Zero Fucs given”. Not only the fans but also Serena Williams’ coach Patrick Mouratoglou, who reacted on the video with a fire emoji, seemed to like Fucsovics’ shot.

Marton Fucsovics, on the other hand, reached the quarterfinals of the Wimbledon Championships this year after overcoming Andrey Rublev, Jannik Sinner, and Diego Schwartzman. Novak Djokovic, the eventual champion, beat him in the final eight.

Since then, the Hungarian has struggled to stay afloat in the US hard-court season, failing to go past the second round in any of the tournaments he has entered, including the US Open.

With a win over Fucsovics in the first round at Moselle, Sonego advances to the second round, where he will face the winner of Alexei Popyrin vs. Holger Rune.
