I saw you credit his touch also earlier. Stellar level indeed. The drop shot has been a decent weapon for Djokovic during these two US tournaments. More often successful than not. PCB was able to dig them up just enough to not give Novak and easy put away. Then the counter dropper from PCB himself that resulted in the first far more agitated ball bash / release of frustration.Yeah, I hope he gets some credits. To save triple set point with 2 incredibly ballsy winners against the world #1 is an impressive feat. He really does have some of the best touch in the game too, was winning the drop-shot/volley wars consistently.
I've seen this called a lucky shot by one other person as well. But PCB actually went for that shot; a controlled FH DTL from a good position. I do get the point of luck since the margin could not have been much smaller (there have been a few even closer ones actually IIRC on some Hawkeye compilation on YT), but you can't take away all credit from PCB even in that shot.Crazy to think.That lucky shot at 0-40 and then hawk-eye...Just some inches cost Nole tournament
