Re: What is your favorite shot?
Forehand for sure, I generate a fair amount of power on it (for an amateur), I also like approaching after hitting a forehand so my close second would be my backhand volley. My drop shot is very average most of the time, but sometimes, purely by chance I hit a smooth one and win the point. With all that in mind, I definitely get the most satisfaction from hitting a cleanly struck forehand.
Genius is not replicable. Inspiration, though, is contagious, and multiform — and even just to see, close up, power and aggression made vulnerable to beauty is to feel inspired and (in a fleeting, mortal way) reconciled.
