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.

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

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.
