Video: Rafael Nadal hits a no-look flick between Jerzy Janowicz's legs

Rafael Nadal came back from a break down in both sets to beat Wimbledon semifinalist Jerzy Janowicz 7-6 (6), 6-4 on Thursday in a highly anticipated third-round clash at the Rogers Cup in Montreal.

The high-quality, entertaining affair saw Nadal break Janowicz when the Pole served for the first set at 6-5. Janowicz saved four set points in the first, but he couldn't save a fifth.

In the video above, check out how Nadal won the first-set tiebreaker. Janowicz went to his famous drop shot one too many times. Nadal got there in plenty of time and when Janowicz tried for a stab lob, Nadal responded with a no-look backhand flick that split Janowicz's legs and earned him the set.

Forget the tweener; let's see more nutmegs in tennis.
