In Rome, Adrian Mannarino's backspinning drop shot proved to be completely unretrievable by Pablo Cuevas, and not because the world No. 23 was too slow. The ball would actually land back on Mannarino's side of the court.

The boomerang drop shot has a one-in-a-million success rate for most players, but the odds are higher for this crafty Frenchman. Despite the theatrics, Mannarino would lose the first-round encounter in straight sets.
