Coria definately is the "king" of the drop shot in my opinion!

Re: Best Dropshot in Mens tennis

I put Roddick as the joke option, it wasn't an easy choice but I voted for Gaudio.

Re: Best Dropshot in Mens tennis

Andy's forehand drop shot it actually quite good and he disguises it extremely well. he just doesn't use it often. But I haven't seen enough of these other guys's drop shots enough to be able to vote on this poll

Re: Best Dropshot in Mens tennis

Albert Portas is supposedly the king of "drop shots", but Guillermo Coria has the best drop shot IMO.
I agree with Rosie.

I miss: Ivan Lendl, Korda, Novak, Bruguera, Rios, Kucera, Courier, Mantilla, Costa, Santoro and Ferreira.

Good luck to:

Gaudio, Murray, Florian Mayer, Chela, Nalbandian, Radek Stepanek, Volandri, Youzhny and Verdasco.

Re: Best Dropshot in Mens tennis

I was wondering where Portas was
That's why I voted other.

I know Marat will never win this poll since his terrible dropshot has given him the nickname OAF

You know Ilhame - I have often wondered what OAF meant and why people use it as a nickname for Marat!!!

Re: Re: Re: Best Dropshot in Mens tennis

from this list Carlos Moya

The best dropshot has Guillermo Coria!

Marat Safin - always the one and only

I think this is not true.

He did improve his dropshot very much, watch his matches in 2002.

Re: Best Dropshot in Mens tennis

Oooh Aaaaah why the F@ck did he play another dropshot!

Said very frustrating in front of the tv while watching him play that shot. I didn't come up with the name, but my fellow fans on another board explained it to me

Re: Best Dropshot in Mens tennis

I know his dropshots sucked back in 2000

I don't even remember what matches I've seen in 2002

Re: Re: Best Dropshot in Mens tennis

Marat vs. Hewitt Shanghai 2002 is a very good example... or Marat vs. Grojean Rg 2002... and other matches

LOL - I like it Ilhame - thanks for explaining it to me Must admit the dropshot IS a very frustrating shot to watch when it's not working - even Guille gets it wrong sometimes(!) and I have a very similar reaction

Re: Best Dropshot in Mens tennis

This poll would have to redone is somehow Safin wins the best drop shot poll. He doesn't have the worst one though, might have to run a poll on that one later.
