Federer = cross-court forehand (aka genius)
Djokovic = cross-court backhand (I was going to say smash, but I'll be kind to Nole... )
Nadal = topspin looping forehand (aka moonball)
Murray = defensive lob (aka pushing)

Nadull and Djokovic's signature shot is causing the opponent to hit an error.

:lol:. Seriously, Novak's BH CC is lethal when on. RN's banana passing FH is an ugly thing but amazingly effective.

people saying djokovics signature shot is backhand dtl, check with your optician or stop being sheep. imo its the cc forehand but i can see how it can be the cc backhand. bh dtl hasnt been on for quite a while.

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.
