We find a new Li-Yau-Hamilton estimate for the Ricci flow. This estimate is a generalization, of the estimate of Chow and Knopf, which was derived from spacetime considerations. The gradient of a one form in Chow and Knopf's estimate is replaced by a symmetric two tensor. Our proof is reminiscent of Hamilton's approach in his original Li-Yau-Hamilton estimate
