Who has the best and the worst drop shot EVER?

For me Aga, Bethanie, Hingis and Schnyder have the best drop shots EVER. Especially Martina Hingis and Aga Radwanska, so sneaky yet always turn out great.

The worst, I say Serena. Every time I see her drop shot it just makes me laugh so hard

Romina Oprandi is the best.

Re: Who has the best and the worst drop shot EVER?

Best Hingis, worst Serena

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Best Hingis and Graf IMO. I don't who has/had the worst but I've never seen Venus made a backhand drop shot.

LEGEND. Nicole. Caro. Aga. Sloane. Taylor.

Re: Who has the best and the worst drop shot EVER?

Oprandi. MJMS has a super drop-shot too.

The worst attempt at a drop-shot which I've seen came from Klaffner at Wimbledon qualifying in 2010. It landed just beyond the service box. Not really sure grass is her surface.

Venus has a pretty dreadful drop-shot. I don't know what she was doing but she kept trying to play what looked to be drop-shots in that match against Safina in Rome in 2009 but they kept landing at the bottom of the net.

Hlavackova, Strycova, Venus, Serena, Schiavone, Hradecka, Safarova, Cetkovska, Pliskova, Kasatkina, Putintseva, Ostapenko, Gasparyan

Re: Who has the best and the worst drop shot EVER?

There's something about the Swiss players having a very good drop shot.

Hingis, Schnyder, Oprandi, Gagliardi had wonderful drop shots. Coincidence.

Radwanska's drop shots are often spectacular but not that effective if you look closely. She plays a lot of them but she's like 50% on them.

Re: Who has the best and the worst drop shot EVER?

I've seen Serena hit pretty tricky forehand dropshots with backspin on them. I think she hit an amazing one against Wozniacki in the tiebreaker in Sydney 09. Azarenka would be considered best if you only looked at her matches from RG 2009, same with Sharapova '10.
So I'll have to go with Wozniacki and Venus here. I've never seen them hit a proper dropshot.

I think all the best ones have already been mentioned I'll just add Su-wei Hsieh, a true magician when in form.

Oprandi without a doubt.

Worst : Serena and Sharapova for sure. They often look ridiculous hitting dropshots

Anastasia Myskina


Radwanska - S. Williams - V. Williams - Kerber
