What's the most underrated shot?

Thinking about the top 10, I would say the following:


1. Ferrer Forehand
2. Djokovic Forehand
3. Nadal Volley

Discuss haters!

Like: Federer, Djokovic, Nadal, Ferrer, Del Potro, Raonic, Haas, Davydenko, Janowicz, Nalbandian, Monfils, Rosol

Dislike: Berdshit, Mugrin Cilic, Simug,

Re: What's the most underrated shot?

I'm gonna be honest
1= Djokovic - Serve
2- Federer - Backhand
3- Murray - Forehand
4- Nadal - Slice
5- Ferrer - i don't care about him
6- Berdych - Return
7- Del Potro - Backhand
8- Tsonga - Volley
9- Tipsarevic - why is he number 9?
10- Gasquet - Serve

Re: What's the most underrated shot?

If something is underrated, we call it underrented at MTF.

2014 Australian Open Champion | 2014 Monte Carlo Masters Champion | 2015 French Open Champion

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga
2008 Paris Masters Champion | 2014 Toronto Masters Champion

Re: What's the most underrated shot?

Has to be Nadal's backhand, it's one of the best in the game. His volleys are underrated as well, like the OP said.

Well yes ... cause it seems weak cause it's the weakest from THEIR arsenal ... that doesn't make it weak ... thus people are underrating them ...

Ferrer's forehand is underrated in my opinion.

Tsonga's weakest shot isn't his Volley at all. Thats one of his strongest shots

Backhand on the other hand

I agree with Djokovic serve and Nadal volley

Jo Wilfried Tsonga

Re: What's the most underrated shot?

Everyone's backhand slice

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.

Re: What's the most underrated shot?

Federer's backhand, obviously.

But a lot of people underrate Federer and delpo in general.

You misread the title. It says underrated, not worst.
