Re: Are Murray defensive lobs the most obnoxious shot in tennis?

Are you stupid?

They are used when being forced on the run, as a defensive shot, that gives you time to get back into position. Most of the time, they work well and allow him to get into a decent position

Nothing obnoxious about them. They show good touch, especially when they hit the lines. Obnoxious lob shots would be ones used unnecessarily and when you're clearly in a good position. Get that into your head.

No because they're bound to give you more time to recover if you pull it off, I hate Murray but this is silly.

Finally a connoisseur in this thread. They're pretty annoying but at least they have some comedic value.

lolwut?
Mugray is not the most exciting fella on tour, bur he does know how to produce quality defensive lobs. Can't accuse him of lacking in pushing skills

Obnoxious, but effective. Haters going to hate.

I dream of a better tomorrow, where chickens can cross the road and not be questioned about their motives.

Nothing like a perfectly placed lob to punish an opponent.

Besides there are also offensive lobs. Lleyton was the best ever at these.

Hewitt's topspin backhand lobs justify my existence.

Completely failed attempts at offensive lobs are more annoying. As are you, thread starter.

Yeah he should just hit a normal shot on the run straight into the net, much better option.

Mark Lenders banged your girlfriend, I'm sorry to tell you that mate.
