I love when he does that jumping movement to catapult his shot on the backhand (Rios does that a lot too): BANG!

His serve is great too.

I like it when Marat jumps up to hit a backhand from behind the baseline and kicks his right leg out. That's so unique! And I've seen Anna Kournikova do the same thing! I think it's a Moscow thing!

I also like hearing Cliff Drysdale question why Marat does that! Insinuating he doesn't need to do that.

Egalite!

This is a tough one. I love all of Marat's shots- serve, forehand, and backhand. His backhand down the line is a thing of beauty! I really think its his signature shot. I also love the jumping backhand, i think it looks cool and i love it when Marat does it!

I guess that jumping stuff helps on the body weight transfer. It should add juice to the shot.
I said I GUESS...
Oh well, its cool anyway.

Apparently John MacEnroe doesn't think its very cool. He thinks its a dumb shot. Every time Marat does it, he always says, 'look at this, he's kicking his leg up like a horse..' hehehe

That's right Jessi. Tennis experts aren't as impressed with Marat's "kicking like a horse" backhand shot as we are!
But the animal experts are!

Oh Jessi! I've never seen you so offensive minded!

Jessi, did you get the tape yet? I sent Sharky in Vancouver a mailing on Friday and she got it by Tuesday. I was shocked she got it so fast!

Egalite!
