Toughest shot to execute?

What do you consider the toughest shot in tennis to execute?

A drive volley. Any ball which you take straight out of the air is always tough to execute.

"I want to do things on my own terms, I can't have anything take me out.
I have never given up and it's important for me to prove to myself that I can do this, and to prove to me that i'm a champion.
If I were just to sit down, lay down and give in, then I wouldn't have any respect for myself."

A dropshot from a good first serve! Or a dipping half Volley.

Women's tennis sucks.

For me it's usually any shot I'm not in position for

I'd have to say my 2-handed forehand drop shot (which usually drops on my side before the net... )

if it was men's tennis I would have said diving volley. Hardly controllable. try doing a slice diving volley, or a drive .

And I'm still saying a diving volley.

Probably a decent drop volley, yu have to control all the pace and make sure your opponent cannot get to it. I dont think a drive volley is that hard, cos ppl only really get to hit them when thier opponent hits a high weak reply.
