Default Worst shot out of Nole's Overhead smash and Murrays second serve?

I think Nole's smash is pretty terrible but it isn't used as often as a second serve.

Easily the worst 2 shots out the top 4... if we count Nadal and not Ferrer

Andy's 2nd serve isn't bad, it's just slow. He can get some good spin on it.

Djokovic's smashes, however, are just diabolical. I laugh every time he attempts one and fails, it's so predictable.

You heard wrong. Murray's 2nd serve is faster than Serena's 1st serve.

Murray's second serve isn't bad, but then it's not great either. But it has improved a lot over the last few years, so he deserves credit there.

On the other hand Djokovic's overhead smash is absolutely awful and always has been. When you consider that routine overhead smashes potentially lost him a Wimbledon SF as well as Olympics SF it only makes the matter worse too.

don't forget to add USO final to that as well, I remember he missed quite a few of those in games that he ended up losing

Yup, it's definitely slower than her second serve. A few other WTA players as well.

Although I imagine he can get more kick/spin on it than they can, etc.

Nole's smash , I cringe everytime he hits one - he missed the easiest one ever to lose the 2008 Olympics SF to Rafa on a hard court. (Will never ever forget that match, that was his best chance to get the gold medal he craves)

Murray's 2nd serve is just slow, but at least he doesn't DF much.

I can't answer that question, but I heard the Highlander's forehand is better than No1e's one handed backhand. Can a respectable tennis expert on this site such as HkZ confirm my suspicions?

I laugh everytime they say Djokovic has a good smash or is very good at the net. Horrible smash and average at the net.

DjokoSmash and it's not even close.

It cost him dearly in terms of momentum and possible outcome in big matches (some mentioned above). His bad slice I can understand but there is no excuse for not getting on top of OH smash.

I usually laugh at Fed's backhand, especially when he starts spraying it at spectators
