Watch: Grigor Dimitrov hits impressive drop-shot winner at Madrid Open

Grigor Dimitrov is still handling his duties as the ATP's resident go-to shot-maker with ease (see: this forehand in Monte Carlo and this backhand flick in Rotterdam).

During a routine first-round win over Pablo Carreno Busta at the Madrid Open, Dimitrov showed off his speed and touch in this winner. After some good defending from his backhand side, Dimitrov flips the point on its head by tracking down a drop shot from Carreno Busta and feathering a sharp cross-court dropper of his own.

Dimitrov went on to win 6-2, 6-4 and will face Romanian wildcard Marius Copil on Wednesday.
