Dimitrov's inimitable net-cord winner in Cincy

Thursday August 18th, 2011

Here's a shot you don't see every day. In Cincinnati on Wednesday, David Ferrer was leading Grigor Dimitrov 30-15 and appeared to have the next point won when a deep body serve caught Dimitrov off guard. But after shanking his return wide toward the alley, an unfortunately placed singles net post provided Dimitrov with some unlikely help for a clean, yet bizarre, net-cord winner.

That is one magic tennis ball.
