Forget tweeners. Grigor Dimitrov hit one of the greatest (if most lackadaisical) shots of the 2012 season against Viktor Troicki during their first-round match in Basel, Switzerland. See it here:



The Bulgarian defeated the No. 32-ranked Serb 6-3, 6-2. Dimitrov, dubbed "Baby Federer" years ago before reality set in, could face his Swiss idol in the tournament's third round.
