Richard's best point?

Let's nominate videos of Richard's best shot and after we have decided on a top 10, we'll do a poll and pick our #1 "favorite, best, OMG, GOAT-like, can't believe he just did that, Richie god-mode, - worthy" shot

Here are my nominations:

2007 TMC RR vs Nadal (hard to describe, but a backhand smash/lob/passing shot )

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wIJfQ6adFqY

2006 USO 4th round vs Hewitt (clean BH winner on MP and a running forehand on MP... while cramping )

Re: Richard's best shot?

Re: Richard's best shot?

That BH lob/passing shot is probably the best shot ever by any player I've ever seen and Nadal's face is priceless

How did you do that, you (swearword to be inserted)?

That is a remarkable shot, and even Ricahrd would not not exactly how he did it. My favourite is more regular:

Puschkin, very true.. Isn't that why Richard has so many fans. Just to watch him play is good enough, him winning is the bonus.

Re: Richard's best point?

I nominate gasquet's shot between his legs in his match against Nalbandian at this years Medibank International. Just is a great display of the natural talent he has!

The video is a little long, the shot is around the 5.30- 5.40 mark

Re: Richard's best point?

I nominate the half volley with the cute jump from his quarterfinal match against Sela at the 2007 AIG Open.
He makes it look so effortless and I love his reaction (the smile )
