Pretty much the same. You just have to be closer to the ball if you want to hit a lob.

Ridiculous shot. I'm going with an other one. I keep it for myself.

agreed

I find it easier to hit a lob

but the bigger chance of winning a point from that position is if you try to hit it hard and low

See I find it easier to hit them flat. I guess it just changes from person to person.

Bob Bryans tweener lob was exquisite when watched live. First time I ever jumped outta my seat watching a doubles match.. and that while only half paying attention scouting for "potential" in the crowd.

Most (if not all) of Federer's tweeners from '01-'11 including the ones he missed.

FeFederer's tweener against Djokovic USO SF '09. Easily the best.
There may have been "harder" ones maybe, like Federer's own repeat in 2010 again Dabul. But its hard to top a cross court tweener on a HC in a Slam SF to bring up match point.

By the way, you must include the reverse hot=dog of Federer's against Schoorel in Doha this year. Federer managed to hide his dorkiness of outrunning the ball by hitting that tweener out of the blue.
