Re: Most overrated shot (of the top players)

Glad to know this topic has established that every shot ever is overrated. Nice.

Nadal's forehand of course. It may be better than his other shots, but he still only hits about 3 winners per match. Hardly dangerous.

Re: Most overrated shot (of the top players)

By commentators: Isner forehand
On here: Paire backhand (Yes, it's good. No, it isn't the best in the world)

He didn't beat those players/caused them trouble due to his forehand, but rather his ability to generate power effortless with short compact swings and force them to be constantly on the defensive. Also his ability to return Federer's serve.

In a way, though, this emphasizes the importance of the shot in general. Most rallies in today's game are constructed around the backhand. Players often look to break down that shot or use it to open up the (righty) forehand or deuce side of the court. As such, its stability in today's game is made very important.

With guys like Djokovic and Murray showing up, players who are more concrete on both sides, we may begin to see a gradual change in the dynamics of the game, wherein differences between the two wings are mostly contextual.

Re: Most overrated shot (of the top players)

Gasquet backhand-people are talking like it's the best in the world,but compares to Nole or Murray backhand is not even close to them.Del PO forehand maybe,after winning US open his forehand is not that hard and destructive but it is still among the best
