VIDEO: Juan Martin del Potro hits a remarkable tweener-lob winner

http://youtu.be/Bg15hdzS1ms

MASON, Ohio -- Juan Martin del Potro may be known for his growling forehand and booming serve, but his feel and improvisational skills aren't too shabby either. Just take a look at this point.

En route to a 7-5, 7-5 win over former top five-ranked Nikolay Davydenko at the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati on Wednesday, del Potro got caught on a drop-shot-lob combination and raced back to the baseline to hit a perfect 'tweener' lob over his Russian opponent.

Granted, it's probably not terribly difficult to hit a lob over the 5-foot-10 Davydenko (I suspect his official ATP height might be generous there), but it was still a great shot.
