Favorite type of winner?

Everyone loves a good winner to get them out of their seats. Which shot do you think is the coolest/most difficult/flashiest/etc.?

I'd say that the return winner is my preference. Always gets a gasp out of the crowd, and can really change the dynamic of a return game.

If at first you don't succeed, lower your standards.

Re: Favorite type of winner?

Yeah, Delpo's forehand winners vs. Roger at that USO final back in 2009 were legendary.

My fave is a flashy looking one handed backhand down the line with power, sort of how Gasquet hits from time to time.

Re: Favorite type of winner?

"Creative winnner" no doubt.
And... Maybe a backhand smash.

I actually think Bernard Tomic will easily win career-year mixed doubles slam in 2020.

Jealous? Yeah, you are, you dirty hater.
