Re: Sharapova's amazing drop shot!!!

Those are 4 words I never thought I'd see together "Maria" "Amazing" and "Drop Shot"

Re: Sharapova's amazing drop shot!!!

she can dropshot and lob.
I remember her dropshotting very well in that Clijsters semi final at the usopen 2005.
just hope she doesn't learn how to slice as well

Re: Sharapova's amazing drop shot!!!

If Maria dropshots, she gets one out of ten in, the rest doesnt even come close to the net You got one out of the ten here

But Maria doesnt really need to dropshot, she blasts anyone off the court anyway

Re: Sharapova's amazing drop shot!!!

It was a good, strategic shot. But, in technical terms, it was a horrible drop shot. The first bounce was halfway up to the service line. The second bounce landed almost a foot beyond the service line.

i know it will be scary once she will learn how to slice but maybe she will be smart enough NOT to learn ...

Re: Sharapova's amazing drop shot!!!

It doesn't look that amazing shot.

At the time when I was watching the match live, I seem to remember thinking that it was though !

Re: Sharapova's amazing drop shot!!!

As someone said she did an actual AMAZZZZZING dropshot against Clijsters three match points down in the second.

Lindsay Davenport

Elena Bovina | Anastasia Myskina | Flavia Pennetta
Fernando Verdasco | Tommy Haas


Q. Give us an update on the kid.
A. Are you serious?

Re: Sharapova's amazing drop shot!!!

I think it was the right move at that point in the match. Was it an amazing drop shot? no....I've seen her hit better. That being said, when you hit as hard as Maria, you don't really need a great drop shot, you just need one that gets over the net and surprises your opponents

Re: Sharapova's amazing drop shot!!!

Well, she seemed to apologize for it, so i don't think she meant to hit it

Re: Sharapova's amazing drop shot!!!

It was just good because Justine didn't expect it because it landed pretty deep for a ''amazing'' drop shot...
