Endgame miniature

In the following position, after ...Qxa7, can White force a win?


Comments:
Yes -- 2.Qd7+ forces off the exchange of queens, after which White uses the opposition to force the Black King to h6 where he is zugzwanged and must cough up a pawn with g6-g5.
 
Very nice - this was a new theme for me, I kept looking for a way for White's king to win the g-pawn, but it turns out Black 'volunteers' it.
