Sometimes you need to pull off something special to get the job done, and that’s exactly what Grigor Dimitrov did against Fernando Verdasco at the Rogers Cup.
Dimitrov, who has struggled for form on the ATP Tour this season, came from a set down to beat the Spaniard 4-6, 6-2, 7-6 (7-5), but he needed three match points to seal the deal.
The third match point, though, produced this 35-shot rally.
