Wimbledon 2015: Dustin Brown produces so much backspin the ball bounces back on to his own side of the court

Tom Edwards

Wimbledon's new fan favorite Dustin Brown has just given spectators another reason to love him: pulling off a ridiculous backspin drop-shot that made the ball bounce back over the net to his own side of the court.

The dreadlocked 30-year-old used the momentum on opponent Viktor Troicki's serve to generate the extreme spin that brough the ball back over the net.

But it's not the first time the shot has been pulled off. It is, in fact, becoming a bit of a thing, as Gael Monfils did it to Pablo Carreno Busta just two days earlier.

Roger Federer - never one to be outdone on a tennis court - also fired a trick shot of his own on Thursday when he hit a between-the-legs lob over Sam Querrey.
