WATCH: Cool as you like Fabio Fognini drops racquet, but still wins point

Fabio Fognini forehand

Fabio Fognini produced an outrageous moment during the Rio Open that would make Gael Monfils proud.

The Italian was serving against Thomaz Bellucci when his racquet dropped out of his hand, but luckily for him it bounced back up and he collected it in one motion, as one does, and then continued to play the point.

To top it all off, he won the point.

The fifth seed went on to win the match 6-7 (5-7), 7-5, 6-2 and will face American Tennys Sandgren in the next round.

More of the same, please Fabio.

But now that you are in the mood, here are some excellent Monfils moments.
