Second Serve


With Roger Federer pulling out of the Mutua Madrid Open draw to be with his wife, tennis fans might have to rely on the human highlight film that is Grigor Dimitrov a little more heavily for glittering hot shots during this week.

More Dimitrov: Goes Behind-the-Back against Gulbis at Indian Wells

The Bulgarian, playing at a career-high ranking of 14 in the world, didn't disappoint in that regard during his 6-2, 6-4 victory over Spaniard Pablo Carreno Busta on Monday evening. Watch as Dimitrov navigates a treacherous rally with the aggressive Spaniard, then replies with a stunning, feathery re-drop for a winner to secure the point.

Just gorgeous stuff from the 22-year-old to come from a full sprint from 10 feet behind the baseline into a perfect slide, then make the exquisite—and perfectly angled—dropper to take the point.
