Video: Spectacular Between-The-Legs Lob Winner At The US Open
By Ben Kiely Updated

Tennis fans in Flushing Meadows were treated to an incredible moment of magic during the first round of the US Open. Croatia's Ivan Dodig was a rank outsider against 19th seed Feliciano Lopez. However, as this clip shows, Dodig was not prepared to just roll over and take a beating.

Towards the end of the second set, the Croatian sensation's strong service forced the Spaniard to make a short slice, enticing him to move into the net. Dodig returned with an embarrassingly poor attempt at a drop shot which gave his opponent ample time to recover and make a relatively easy lob. Dodig was not ready to give up yet. He made a dash to the baseline where he produced a magnificent hot dog lob winner to claim the point.

Dodig eventually rolled over and gave up in the fifth set, retiring with cramps.
