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, :worship: - worthy" shot :rolls:

Here are my nominations:

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

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

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

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:

I think the one against Rafa is my favorite, but I've always loved this point:)

:) 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.

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

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 :worship:)
