Re: Your Favourite Shot?

My first serve is my favourite shot. Usually when it's on, it sets up a pretty easy volley.

Other fave shots include BH volley, BH slice, and CC topspin forehand, especially hit a bit on the rise and with a nice angle --> creates a bit of a hurry for the opponent.

I also enjoy defending, I'm pretty fast and good with my hands so I can make life miserable for those who try to be aggressive...

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.

Re: Your Favourite Shot?

My best shot is probably my two-handed backhand, it's deadly :P

Although there is nothing more satisfying that getting someone with a drop shot...

Inside out forehand.

Re: Your Favourite Shot?

When an opponent hits an unbelievable angle, you run it down and just when they expect you to go down the line you hit an even more unbelievable angle for a clean winner.

Re: Your Favourite Shot?

BH cross court. Slice deep and top spin shorter around service line. Like to come if off the deep slice if I can get court opened up off a FH.

Man, love that shot. I seem to be to lazy on the footwork most of the time to get outside the ball. Any slight miss hit on that one and I'm wide open for the DTL. Wish I could hit it better.

Re: Your Favourite Shot?

Any forehand. I can mix it up so well. I can go flat angle crosscourt, heavy topspin, inside out, Nadal style, and everything in between.

and I must say I have immaculate footwork so I can almost always run around.

Re: Your Favourite Shot?

I love taking my two fisted backhand down the line.

Aside from that, I always feel great if I get a weak reply off the return and make a dropshot winner.

A high over head extremely close to the net, I let it bounce once, then slam it down their throat .
