Grigor Dimitrov Hits Behind-The-Back Drop Shot Against Victor Troicki At ATP Swiss Indoors

Grigor Dimitrov might be sick and tired of his "Baby Fed" nickname, but shots like this aren't going to make the comparisons to Roger Federer go away anytime soon.

The Bulgarian tennis player hit an improbable behind-the-back, half-volley, drop-shot winner in his match against Serbia's Victor Troicki in the first round of the Swiss Indoors, coincidentally held in Federer's hometown of Basel, Switzerland.

The shot delighted audiences and commentators alike." That's got to be the shot of year! Without a doubt. This is absolutely outrageous," exclaimed announcer Robbie Koenig, who added, "Straight to the casino, off you go."

Dimitrov defeated the eighth-seeded Troicki 6-3, 6-2 to advance to the second round, in which he beat France's Julien Benneteau 7-6 ,6-7, 7-6 to advance to the quarterfinals.
