WTF is Roddick's serve doing in this poll? IMO, it's his most watchable and most efficient shot.

If you had put Roddick's BH there, I would agree that it suits this poll pretty much. But why serve? What the heck?

Roddick's serve is of course very efficient but personnally i find it very ugly(and dangerous too for his elbow).
That's actually a good example of a shot being ugly but still very effective.

BTW - I'd vote for Gasquet's forehand too but won't on principle .

Yep,me too.
I'm especially amazed he hasn't had more elbow problems in his career.

You just have to watch his last match against Nalbandian

Ok, mate, thanks for explanation! At least, now I understand your idea.

Still, I disagree with you here. But let it be that way

Yeah, I'm quite sure that I can actually hit a better backhand than Karlovic, he is pathetic.
