Argentine tennis player Renzo Olivo crashed out in the second round of the ATP Santiago Challenger, losing 5-7 4-6 to Thomaz Bellucci of Brazil on Wednesday.

He didn’t go down without producing a moment of brilliance though.

While serving a 4-2 in the first set, Olivo dropped his racket after unleashing a serve. He, however, was quick enough to pick it up in time to continue the rally.

And guess what? He went on to win that point after Bellucci committed an unforced error.

Despite going 5-2 up thereafter, Olivo couldn’t consolidate the lead as Bellucci staged a stunning comeback to prevail in straight sets to set up a date with compatriot Rogerio Dutra Silva.

This is not the first time a player has dropped racket while serving as Stefanos Tsitsipas and Pedro Sousa both did so at Estoril Open last year.
