Pablo Carreno a blow never (or almost) seen in a Grand Slam tournament was invented due to its rarity in development and execution. In addition, it earned him a break in the third set of his titanic fight with the Dutchman Tallon Greek Railway.
The smash of this made a strange in the air by the prevailing wind in Melbourne. Carreño, seeing how the ball fell short, started a sprint.
He had to improvise on the fly as the wind continued to play tricks on the ball. The man from Gijon did not give up and went to the other side of the court along the side of the net, putting the ball into Griekspoor’s field, ‘invading’ his field.
A madness well resolved by the Spaniard. An action for the ‘highlights’.
