Sometimes, things just happen to go your way. Just ask Radu Albot.

The Moldovan reached the quarterfinals of the Singapore Tennis Open, but not without a bit of flair and drama in his comeback victory over Yannick Hanfmann.

Down a set, Albot pulled off the shot of the day when he came up with the above tweener lob for a winner.

Needless to say, Hanfmann poked fun on Twitter in not being impressed.


Later in the second set, Albot faced two match points on his serve at 4-5, 15-40. The 31-year-old erased both, and would wipe away the German's third opportunity to close the door at 6-7 in their second tie-break of the day.

Hanfmann went up an early break in the deciding set, but Albot dug in again, winning the final five games to complete the comeback, 6-7 (2), 7-6 (7), 6-3, after two hours and 42 minutes.

His reward is a clash with top seed Adrian Mannarino.
