Nadal = topspin looping forehand (aka moonball)

Yeah Nole's signature shot is the running/'defensive' forehand crosscourt, at least to me. But really his strength is being good at everything, doesn't really have a weak shot other than the smash/volley. Doesn't have an amazing shot either, is just good allround.

Nole's signature shot has always been the BH DTL, he doesn't use it quite as much as he used to, but the question isn't 'which shot do they hit the most', because the answer would unanimously be 'the serve' for everyone. His CC FH has improved a lot/become much more of a feature since the start of 2011, yes.

Gasquet - BH DTL and CC
Kohli - BH DTL
Raonic - Serve
Mayer - all sorts of funky slices
Wawrinka - BH CC
Steps - Volley
Roddick - Serve
Seppi - FH
Youzhny - BH DTL
Lalo - Serve/slice
Troicki - middle of the court FH
Benny - CC groundstrokes

Federer's is the BH flick. He made this shot countless times and it is beautiful and extremely difficult to make. :drool:

Slice Winner
07-17-2012, 02:38 PM
Federer's is clearly the "whiffed backhand".
Djoker's is any overhead.
Nadal's is the lethal flat DTL backhand winner.
Don't forget Murray's "dropshot that bounces before the net", along with the vicious "failed ball toss".
Ferrer's is no doubt his S&V combo - cannon serve, followed by laser-accurate punch volleys.
Tsonga's signature shot is not a shot, but his unrelenting composure in the face of adversity. His mental strength and focus is the stuff of legend.
Berdych's signature shot is the sliced backhand approach shot, which always puts him in really good position. To see the pass go right by him.
Tipsarevic's signature shot is attempting to hit a FH on the BH side by turning the racquet upside down.
Del Potro's signature shot is the fake approach shot. He gets nearly to the service line, then scampers back, leaving the opponent dazed and confused.
Almagro's is the 'body blow' - he will literally try to kill you and your family if given the chance.
Isner uses his height to create beautiful short angles with the wide variety of spins he can produce from his BH wing.
Simon - slice winner DTL.
Mardy Fish - flat FH DTL.
Juan Monaco - not a shot, but a tactic of lulling the opponent to sleep by losing 14 games in a row. Just when the opponent has drifted off to sleep, HE POUNCES.
Marin Cilic clearly tries to emulate his hero Ivanisevic by using his signature serve and volley as often as he can.
Verdasco's signature shot is 'smile to the camera, wearing only underwear'.
Monfils - left handed FH.
Dolgopolov - his relatively safe, high percentage first serve actually puts him in good position to win a lot of points.
Nishikori - overhead.
Gasquet - forehand on the rise/half volley winner.
Raonic - any groundstroke.
Stepanek - moonball topspin forehand.
Roddick - approach shot.
Davydenko - favourite shot is vodka (in Red Bull).

Djokovic - Backhand on full stretch. No doubt it's his most brilliant shot. Very unique shot imo. I don't even know how many times he pulled off sick BH winners on full stretch. His balance on the BH wing is just unreal.

Nadal - The banana passing shot - Extremely unique shot. No one can do it as good as Nadal. Everyone remembers Nadal whenever they see anyone playing a decent banana shot.

Federer - Maybe half volley?! Well I'll let his fans decide this. He has many great shots so I'm not sure which one is his signature shot.

Murray - Drop shot. His drop shot looks really unique to me and very effective at the same time. Even Andy himself said it's his fav shot.

Del Potro - Super flat Forehand CC at full power - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7RcxYFBOehU.:worship: This shot to me shows Delpo's full potential.

Tsonga - Stop volley/Drop volley - Just go watch his match vs Nadal in AO 2008. Some SICK drop/stop volleying from Jo in that day.

Ferrer - Inside out FH - It's certainly his best shot but there are many who have a better inside out FH than him.

Berdych - Not sure which shot is his signature shot. Maybe FH inside out.

Tipsarevic - Backhand DTL - His BH DTL is top 3 at the very least at the moment.

I will leave the other players to you guys.

Monaco - Backhand push down the middle.

Looner
10-07-2012, 12:45 PM
For Federer, I'd say his half volley pick-ups time and again is most definitely a signature shot. For Berdych, I'd go for his IO FH. The way he sets it up is easy sometimes and then he goes whaam and blows the ball away.

Satasonic
10-07-2012, 12:48 PM
I dont know what you guys are talking about, but Federer has the greatest Cross Court forehand of all time. When he whips it from the middle of the court to the left side, its usually the end of the point.

Djokovic is definitely the stretch backhand. Its nothing special, unless he gets a winner from a defensive position. On the other hand, Agassi stretched quite nicely, either. Not as good as Djokovic, but definitely up there.

Nadal- any type of forehand. Its unique in every way. Looks ugly, though, but tennis isnt a game of aesthetics.

Berdych- one of the GOAT players in putting short balls away. Notice how many times Berdych fails to put away a short ball- its close to 0 in most matches. Its ridiculous how both his forehand and backhand shots can put away short balls.

Not consistent enough to be a signature shot though. It's truly unique in his game (as is he smash smash winner and the hot dog) but he can't use it often enough to be called a signature shot. So with that being said, half volleys off any kind of shot his opponent plays it is. I mean a recent example is Nadull in the wind in that IW SF. That was some sick BHs he was playing. Truly genius.

For me, Federer's signature shot is the backhand flick pass. That is extremely idiomatic of Federer. Nalbandian has the rolled backhand that has a lot of spin and creates a short angle. That's probably his signature and certainly one of my favourite shots of any player. I recall Rios was also fond of it, typically used by players who are considered to be prodigious talents.

Federer's most insane half-volley...
http://youtu.be/R2OcNKr011E?t=1m14s

The 1/2 volley is amazing, but that clip is INSANE.
I count 13 backhand down-the-line winners in that one clip/match. That's more than certain players hit in a week.
His BH was GOAT-level for that match. The low-bouncing/faster courts really suit the 1 hander.

So because he has a great forehand, that means Rafito never shanks, no?

Stop being such a parrot and repeating same thing time and time again. Every real tennis fan knowns Noserer won most of his slams in mug era. (2003-2007). So Nadal's 11 slams are worth twice as much because he actually played against decent competition. 11x2=22. 22>17 :wavey:

lol @ trolls in the thread. Nadal's FH is the greatest shot in the history of the sport, everbody who watched tennis for more than 10 minutes will not argue with that. He can hit flat, topspin, banana shots, on the run, down the line and cross court at will. Noserer fanatics overrate his FH majorly, it's a decent shot when on, but he shanks is half the time when he's having an off day. Obviously because Noserer has so many clueless fangirls every aspect of his game is overrated, forehand included, which is a good shot, but nowhere near peak Nadal, hope this helps :wavey:

Nadal's fh is only good for clay. It sucks hard on faster surfaces, as evidenced by his lack of titles outside of clay.

But one thing I have to hand to him is his ability to serve-and-volley. That only comes from natural talent and great hands.

S&V is an archaic practice that has no place in today's game. Thankfully. 90's tennis was pure torture with net rushing clowns winning slams left and right. Today's game exposed their lack of game, talent and fitness. But this is a discussion for other time. Had Nadal the fortune of playing in an era where men had the height and strength of girls and winning a title required you to beat a couple of amateur clowns, he'd have 30 slams and 200 titles easily.

Fed hits so many insane shots it's difficult to pick one.

I don't know if it has been mentioned, but Rafa's signature shot are his sick passing shots from impossible positions: most players wouldn't even get to those balls, let alone hitting clean winners.

Maybe he hadn't many occasions to use them since players get to the net rarely, but as a Fed fan I often wondered how could Rafa hit those shots. :)

I actually think one of Nadal's signature shots is the defensive lob at full stretch, countless times that one has got him out of trouble and back in the point, and alot of the time he works his way back in and slams a forehand winner off somewhere. Good shit.

Anyone who runs and reaches for far out balls has that shot, including Roger. It's not really unique. The fact Nadal gets it in court so often is just a testament to his animalistic ability to run like mad and his luck as well.

Nope, Nadal, Djoker and Muzz have an uncanny ability to put their extreme-reach defensive lobs right back to the opponent's baseline.
Roge rarely puts up defensive lobs these days.

Never watched a single Nadal match then. At his best his forehand is the perfect combination of spin and pace. He can hit 180 kmh with 4000+rpm. Nobody on tour comes close.

Agreed, and if Noserer could play on clay properly instead of just serving and shanking, maybe he'd have a calendar slam by now and not be Nadal's turkey on clay. :sad:
