Re: The most satisfying shot in tennis?

The shot that came immediately to mind when reading this thread is a running forehand winner down the line after a long rally, say a la peak Capriati's helicopter forehand.

Re: The most satisfying shot in tennis?

Yeah I should add that I only had 10 options for the poll and didn't want to just have an "Other" category. But as mentioned by some of you guys, the overhead smash and inside out forehand winners are also very satisfying.

Feel free to add any shot you want

Re: The most satisfying shot in tennis?

Backhand down the line winner.

or for me, I love my inside out forehand or backhand dropshot and drop volleys

Re: The most satisfying shot in tennis?

Return winner, although only the GOAT ones, it depends on the serve.
The lob is fucking sublime also, and the running FH at the end of long rallies too.

It's not an option but Maria's slice BH winners DTL>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Re: The most satisfying shot in tennis?

Angles are very satisfying for me too - to watch and to play.

Nothing like hitting a Seles-like loopy two-handed forehand crosscourt angle and backed with a angled two-handed backhand crosscourt to the other side. That's what I call satisfaction.

Re: The most satisfying shot in tennis?

This poll makes me realize I don't like the same shots as most people at all. I mean, all my favorite shots got the least votes (so far)!

I just don't care much of great returns, aces, down the line backhands or forehands on the run, these are common winners to me, not so entertaining to watch.

Nothing like a stop volley, a backhand overhead or a drop shot. Different aesthetics I guess.

That said, it all depends on the style of the player as well.
