Second Serve


You have your drop shots and you have your excellent drop shots and you have your flubbed drop shots. Yes, droppers come in all shapes and sizes, and come in all situations too, particularly on grass.

But rarely do they come off a return, and even rarer do they happen to be struck this exquisitely.
