Memorable winners out of nowhere

Recently compiled this video of Federer producing winners practically from out of nowhere. It got me thinking, which other players - past and present - are capable to this repeatedly? Do you have a favourite shot that came out of nowhere?

Tomic GOATing:

You might say this is not a winner, but in my book, Tomic is a winner.

What about these?

Kei also saved a SP from Wawrinka off a stunning BH winner in the 3rd ste TB in their USO QF match

There's a strange new light in my eyes, things I've never known. Changing my life, changing me.
I've been searching, so long, to find an answer. Now I know my life has meaning.

Re: Memorable winners out of nowhere

If I understand the topic correctly, this fits the bill to a T:

Pedestrian match from both players swung in Roddick's favor when he channelled his pre-pusher days and went beast-mode for a single game.

Those forehand winners in that one game probably equaled his total for the rest of the match. "Out of nowhere" indeed.

He did something similar to Nadal when he won Miami in 2010. Nadal was cruising until Andu started to hit through the ball more. It was like an accidental rope-a-dope tactically-speaking.
