Most overrated shot (of the top players)
 
Apologies if this thread exists already, but I searched and couldn't find it.

Thread is self-explanatory. E.g., you think Federer's FH is overrated, or Nole's return, Isner's serve, or Murray's ability to insult his box.

I think Gasquet's BH is probably a little bit overrated. He has to stand 15 metres behind the baseline to use it, so he doesn't win matches with it.

Federerīs between the legs shot honestly. People are talking about it like he invented it. Itīs actually very, letīs say, good looking but still...players used it before and even on GS matches, but they werenīt multiple GS winners so people didnīt talk about it that much...I donīt mean on this forum btw.

I think people overrate Isner's forehand tbh. People say it's really good, but to me it's pretty average.

You fail at logic. If he stands 15 meters behind the baseline but the shot is still really efficient then it's a wondershot.

I agree, although hitting one for a clean winner to set up match point vs Djokovic was special.

I for one think Nadal's volleys are VASTLY overrated except his drop volleys probably.

I am not sure what else of the top players is overrated. Maybe Murray's serve. When it's on, it's really good but tbh it's very seldom on.

Some suggestions in the OP might be a good idea.

Nadal's stamina
Del Potro's FH
Isner's FH
Some perhaps controversial, but it's only my opinion. List of underrated shots is much longer.

Not really a shot, but OK! If we're going to talk about attributes, then Ferrer's "fighting" ability. I used to believe Ferrer was a big fighter, then I saw the 2nd set vs. Nadal in Rome :lol:

Ferrer's fighting ability/mentality.

Federer's serve

Gasquet's backhand

Berdych's forehand

Isner's forehand

Murray's backhand

Ferrer's mentality is definitely one. He easily loses his temper and makes a lot of UEs.
I also agree with the Gasquet's backhand. It looks fluid but not that effective.
I think Safin's backhand is a bit overrated. His backhand is too flat without too much margin for errors.
