What is Your Favourite Shot?

I was wondering what everyone's favourite shot is? I will ask this in two parts.

A) Which is your favourite shot on the tour? Example Guga's backhand.
B) For those who play tennis what is your favourite stroke?

Re: What is Your Favourite Shot?

Any forehand down-the-line. A powerful one, Safin-like. Sadly Marat doesn't do it often.

And the shot I like doing the most... Well its a backhand volley and perhaps my single-handed extereme crosscourt backhand with topspin, when i'm standing between the baseline and the service line (funny, but I use two hands for my rally backhands).

Re: What is Your Favourite Shot?

A) I like the Gonzalez forehand when it goes in.
B) My best and favourite shot is the wrong-footing forehand waiting until they moved one way and hitting behind them.

1) Gaudio's backhand
2) Forehand (....guess that's my only shot anyway )

Re: What is Your Favourite Shot?

1) Yep, I'm a big fan of the big forehand winner down the line too. Nothing beats it

Re: What is Your Favourite Shot?

Actually when playing doubles and hitting a winner down the line of the guy at net, is another shot I enjoy, but don't do it enough.

Re: What is Your Favourite Shot?

1.) Best shot to watch- Roger's forehand. I love how he can generate so much spin off nothing shots and from the middle of the court create such vicious angles with it that take his opponents way out.

2.) Favourite shot to play- backhand. As a lefty with a single handed backhand, many people try to pick on that shot so I angle it deep cross court or down the line My forehand, on the other hand leaves a lot to be desired and it is the shot I am trying the hardest to improve.

It's a thing of beauty.

In other words you don't play like Feliciano Lopez then.

In a sense I guess I do- more of a reverse of Feli in that my backhand is ok but my forehand sucks (I wouldn't mind to be able to volley as he does though ) F/H is actually not too bad if I receive pace from my opponent and use that pace to generate my own, but when I get a floated ball to that side that is when I have problems.

Re: What is Your Favourite Shot?

1. Gaudio's backhand.

2. As for a favourite shot. I don't have a specific one, but a combo of the angled groundstroke, drop shot and the topspin lob, that's so enjoyable when it works.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: What is Your Favourite Shot?

I love watching Rusedski's serve - it is just so fluent and easy. I copied it this year and it worked for a while until i hurt my shoulder!

My favourite shop is the inside-out forehand - very effective!
