Mayer's mule kick drop shot?

So what do you think of this nifty shot Mayer is able to hit? I don't know if all of you were able to see these shots he hit (the match isn't over though, so tune in and he'll probably hit some more) but anyways it's exactly like those mule kick style backhands smaller players hit when they wanna jump up to the height of the ball to maximize their power off that side, but right a the last second Florian carves under it and hits a superb drop shot. The first time I saw him hit it, i seriously had a blank face on, and then when he pulled it off again I was like . So what are you're thoughts on it?

Re: Mayer's mule kick drop shot?

It's a unique shot and Mayer has an unorthodox game, so when people see him play, he will never be forgotten.

Yes, the drop shot is a good one.

I love it. Very clever.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Kinda like it. This might become his signature shot. Love the player.
