Over the next two weeks, the WTA Editorial team will be revisiting the hottest shots and most remarkable rallies of the 2023 season.

First up is the Australasian swing of January, encompassing Adelaide 1, Auckland, Adelaide 2, Hobart and Hua Hin. Coco Gauff pulled off a miraculous lob en route to her third career title, Venus Williams turned back the clock with a vintage backhand, Tamara Zidansek scrambled to every corner of the court, and Zhu Lin and Madison Brengle put on a three-set show. The best of the lot, though, has to be yet more Ons Jabeur wizardry.
