Pablo Andujar with a brilliant drop shot against Dominic Thiem at Rio Open

Watch this brilliant drop shot from Pablo Andujar against Dominic Thiem at the Rio Open

Pablo Andujar produced an outrageous drop shot during his Rio Open match against Dominic Thiem.

His touch for the ball was a moment of magic for the struggling Spaniard before sadly retiring after the sixth game of the opening set in Brazil.

It was a bitter blow for Andujar who had undergone three elbow surgeries in the past two and a half years before coming out of retirement late last year.

Andujar had defeated Gerald Melzer to record his first ATP win in over two years in the first round, but there will be genuine concern for the player after he was forced to retire against the talented Austrian.
