What is your favorite shot by your favorite player?

My favorite player is Marat Safin. My favorite Safin shot: the backhand. I first fell for it in the 2000 U.S. Open final, and, IMO, there's nothing better than watching him unleash it from anywhere on the court.

My second fave is Roger Federer. My fave shot by him is that running forehand. The 2003 Wimbledon semi-final against Roddick was when it first made me sit up and take notice. It's just a thing of beauty, IMO.

What about you? What's your favorite shot by your favorite player?

I also love the Federer forehand, it's just sick, as Pattie Mac would say. :devil:

My favorite player is Cañas but not because of his shots :sad: (which are not bat at all)

Then I will go with Coria and his drop shot or Nalbandian's backhand.

I also like the forehand of Federer and Moya.

Federer's forehand, and in particular the running forehand. Those half volleys from the baseline on either side, are great fun to watch as well. :)

Federer's backhand slice...
hewitt's lob
sampras's serve motion (especially when he always sticking his tongue out when he aimed :p :p :p :p :p :p :p )

Agassi's return of wide serves where he steps inside the court to cut off the angle and sends the ball down the line (on both sides). :cool:

Olivier Rochus' backhand and his lobs (especially over big players! Just love those! :p )

I love it when Federer gets a forehand off a short ball and just whips it into the opposite corner and follows it to the net for the put-away volley (if the other guy gets to it in the first place)

Love JanMike's backhand. When he gets set and lines that up he can do some serious damage with it. Tommy Haaaaahhhhhhs has an excellent back(side)hand too.

Federer's slice backhand is an extraordinary and beautiful shot. It floats over the net very low with temendous spin. Players trying to whack it back hard get into trouble because it is so hard to anticipate just how it will bounce.

Patrick Rafter's high backhand volley :hearts: That's a BEAUTY! There's always a big smile on my face when I see him hit that volley. :lol: Too bad that I can only see that on old tapes nowadays. :awww:

The backhand is basically Schalken's only real weapon besides his consistency, and he has a lovely follow-through after the shot. It's not as flamboyant as a Guga/Gaudio DTL backhand, but he can suddenly switch the direction and surprise people by hitting it very accurately.

*SKYE*

any player who can run from the service line to the base line on the run and hit a shot under there legs lol ive seen players do it but i forget who.... :wavey:

how funny is princesa :)
unfortunately i have to agree with sjengster and say gaudio and kuerten's backhands are immense.....and safin's is possibly the best of them all.
love how huge roddick's forehand is too...he just hammers it every time!
apart from them federer's groundstrokes and ancic's serve....

roddick sometimes did it but this year he only hit one winner against kiefer....... but it wasn't between his legs but on the side.(see play of the week on the ATP website)

Federer ;) , he has a great backhand too, so you should be a fan of him then?
Hewitt's backhand is nothing spectacular, but it is very consistant.
