WATCH: Dustin Brown channels his inner Boris Becker with diving volley in Stuttgart
Dustin Brown not only came up with a brilliant upset win at the MercedesCup on Thursday, but also produced some glorious shots en route to his victory.
The 34-year-old Brown, best known for beating Rafael Nadal at Wimbledon in 2015, stunned top seed Alexander Zverev in the second round to claim only his second ATP Tour-level win of the year, his first coming in the opening round in Stuttgart.

A man who comes alive on the grass…
