John McEnroe: serve motion....invented to avoid back pain. ( also the rest of his touch strokes as well for that matter.)

Borg: two handed / one handed hockey slapshot backhand

Santoro: two handed forehand and all the rest of his strokes

Nadal: bull whip forehand

Sampras: air Jordan over head smash

Roddicks : serve motion. Invented while playing baseball with a tennis racquet

Courier: Run around Backhand inside out forehand baseball swing stroke

Arias: the father of the modern game and whom Bolliteri based everything on

Agassi: hitting on the rise

Connors: two handed backhand smash

Roscoe tanner: lowest ball toss in the history of tennis. Invents while hitting leaves off trees.

Michael Chang: the hurry up underhanded serve.

Dick Norman's behind the back lob.

Think he meant what the players use at least sometimes, rather than trick shots.. but ah well.
