Re: Do YOU have a good drop shot?

My drop shot is so hot and cold. Some days it is great, some days it is a god damn lob

Re: Do YOU have a good drop shot?

In a few matches I made a few really good drop shots, but to be honest, this is not something I do often purposely...I have really good lob though. I a few matches I win around 5 points in the match with lob for sure.

Re: Do YOU have a good drop shot?

I almost can't hit it when I want to, but sometimes I mishit and pull out deadly dropshots. Lots of them were ridiculously short and had back spin, but again they were not intentional

Re: Do YOU have a good drop shot?

My drop shot kind of sucks and can be rather predictable.

My lob on the other hand is beautiful when on and can hurt almost anyone!!

This for me too, backhand dropshot is okay because I do it two-handed and I always manage to take the ball's pace away, but forehand dropshot... meh

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.

Re: Do YOU have a good drop shot?

2 Saturdays ago I saved a MP with a forehand one, but in general not really . For some reason I pull out great shots MP down . The previous Saturday it was a monster FH return winner. I still lose eventually but I delay proceedings .

Re: Do YOU have a good drop shot?

Hah, my touch shots are the worst. I unintentionally hit deadly dropshots with back spin when I have to hit a really low slice and they just somehow land really short. But when I do try hitting drop shots, they're like small, short lobs

Re: Do YOU have a good drop shot?

My drop shot could be better. I couldn't put enough back spin to keep the ball short and low so my opponent can easily give me a hard ball back.

Re: Do YOU have a good drop shot?

No but my brother hits them so well both from FH and BH. I hate playing against him because they exhaust me.
