Cool Name a player and her best and worst shots

Could be interesting to read.

I'd say my fave Gallovits' better shot is the forehand and worst shot is the two-handed backhand.

Looking forward to more oppinions.

Is a serve counted as a shot?

Re: Name a player and her best and worst shots

You like Gallovits better than Chaknashvili????

Szavay: Best-Backhand DTL; Worst-Serve at this point, in general maybe anything defensive

My number one: Victoria Azarenka

ATP: Novak Djoković

Crazy Frenchies! Gilles Simon Alizé Cornet

Agnieszka Radwańska:

best: the one that takes her opponent by surprise (whatever it may be: a drop-shot, BH, FH, cross-court or down-the-line, a volley, or a lob)

worst: her second serve (unfortunately, the least likely shot to surprise anybody)

Re: Name a player and her best and worst shots

I don't think Dementieva's serve is that bad anymore. If anything, I hate her backhand. It's predictable, dull and has no variety.

What about Vera Zvonareva? I dont think she's got any particular strength, but neither does she have any particular weakness. Everything about her game, including the second serve are solid. And mental strength is NOT a shot

True, but her serve percentages have been relatively good this year.

Re: Name a player and her best and worst shots

Stosur
best shot: Serve and forehand and volley when she doesnt have a match point or break point!
Worst shot: When ever she has a winning lead against a higher ranked player
