Djokovic's smash.
I don't think that's overrated, because everyone knows it sucks.

Nadal's volley is still underrated.

Federer's backhand is not great these days.

Odd options there..

Nolandy's backhands are rated highly for good reason. Should be Nadal's volleys in general, not just the drop volley, which he is pretty good at to be fair. Fed's backhand isn't overrated.

i assume that you talk about peak fed BH and its not over-rated.
now-days his backhand sucks and its clear to everybody.
Even in his prime his (topspin) backhand always kinda sucked, it's not the odd passing shot against helpless Roddick that will change my opinion.

Picked Djokovic backhand before realising it was a nadal drop volley in the list.

I wasn't aware anyone even discussed a Nadal drop volley as a great shot that could be overrated tbh.

How is Federer's BH overrated? :haha:
This. If anything, his BH is rather underrated these days.

Edit : Murray's BH slice is actually one of the best... doesn't make sense. And if Nadal's skills at the net are indeed overrated most of the time, his drop volley is decent.

Federer BH and Djokovic lobs.
What the heck are you talking about :lol:? Novak's lobs are freaking great.

People here joke about his smash ... having a short time memory, remembering a few of them that he missed but not remembering so many times that he actually made that 'shot' easily. It's OK. It is MTF. :)

As for Fed's BH ... it used to be very good. It is not any more ... so what?

Silly thread. I'm not sure why some of you focus so much on negative things.

One shot can not define you as a player or as a human being. Think about it ;).

Nadal's volleys, by quite a large margin. He's not fantastic at the net, but he's not bad either. However, some people, McEnroe especially, seem to think he's godly in that department when both Andy and Roger are better than him.

Djokovic and Andy's shots are rated exactly where they deserve to be because they're amazing and Roger's backhand isn't overrated in the least.
