Pretty much the same. You just have to be closer to the ball if you want to hit a lob.

Ridiculous shot. I'm going with an other one. I keep it for myself.

agreed

I find it easier to hit a lob

but the bigger chance of winning a point from that position is if you try to hit it hard and low

See I find it easier to hit them flat. I guess it just changes from person to person.

Re: Which was the best tweener ever?

tweener is the wrong term...

hotdog or hotdog reversii

to help, murray has been ripping out the hotdog reversii of late...

Re: Which was the best tweener ever?

Bob Bryans tweener lob was exquisite when watched live. First time I ever jumped outta my seat watching a doubles match.. and that while only half paying attention scouting for "potential" in the crowd.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.

Most (if not all) of Federer's tweeners from '01-'11 including the ones he missed.

Re: Which was the best tweener ever?

FeFederer's tweener against Djokovic USO SF '09. Easily the best.
There may have been "harder" ones maybe, like Federer's own repeat in 2010 again Dabul. But its hard to top a cross court tweener on a HC in a Slam SF to bring up match point.

By the way, you must include the reverse hot=dog of Federer's against Schoorel in Doha this year. Federer managed to hide his dorkiness of outrunning the ball by hitting that tweener out of the blue.

"In my opinion he's the best player ever. When you play tennis, playing Federer is kind of a dream because you can see he does everything you would love to do on the court" - Fabrice Santoro
