Watch Roger Federer pull a perfect drop shot out of his arsenal against Dominic Thiem in the 2019 BNP Paribas Open final. The Swiss player said: "It's hard to pinpoint exactly what went wrong [against Thiem]. The return he hits on the line at 5-all [in the third set], that's the one I needed, and I couldn't produce that.
Why is that? You can start looking, digging so deep, and then you end up getting lost, rather than just saying he played maybe a little bit better when he really had to. I didn't feel like I played bad, either. I had my chances. I was in the points", concluded the world No. 5.
