Me too. I love my forehand so much. I can run around my backhand to hit a forehand all day.

Re: What's Your Best Shot?

Probably by back hand slice. I probably use my BH slice as much as Stosur or Graf... Love using it as an approach shot as well.

Re: What's Your Best Shot?

Backhand, no matter if it is down the line or crosscourt, I just love my backhand, my coach says it is so good cause I use the left hand very well.

Donít squander the gold of your days listening to the tedious, trying to improve the hopeless failure, or giving away your life to the ignorant and the vulgar. These are the sickly aims, the false ideals of our age.

Re: What's Your Best Shot?

My forehand is my best shot since my backhand has completely broken down in the past year.
I can hit through it and hit winners in the corners.

Re: What's Your Best Shot?

Backhand CC cuz that's the shot I miss the least I think.

Re: What's Your Best Shot?

My Backhand is my best shot so I picked CC. I can put much more pressure on the ball than with the forehand, maybe because I hit it double-handed.

Re: What's Your Best Shot?

Lately I have been training my inside out forehand. It's one of my favorite shots and I'm getting really good at it.

Re: What's Your Best Shot?

I find it easier to hit cross court(it actually is), but I have a really sweet backhand dtl

I used to have a real good backhand cc, i mean it still is good but my backhand dtl overshadows it!

Yep. Me too! My ground game is my strong part, Im not that bad of a volleyer. My weaknesses are my serve(first AND second) and my ability to go for my shots in matches. Some minor stuff ya know...

I am physically fit to go the distance. I feel I would have a very good three set win-loss record. Currently 2-1...

I also never give up. I saved 6 match points in one match and come from behind in a lot of matches! I am a slow starter though! I am the future of American tennis!

Re: What's Your Best Shot?

FH CC is my best shot, espacially as a passing shot.

Re: What's Your Best Shot?

Used to be my forehand cross court, but I learned today that I think backhand cross court is a lot better now.

Re: What's Your Best Shot?

I definitely hit my FH harder, but most of the time, I have to push it to get it in the court. It's so pathetic.

But my BH I will run around my FH to hit BHs all day. I actually use this little short angle CC on purpose, I aim to hit in the corner of the service box.

And the dish ran away with the spoon..
but Hawaii was the only state that would recognize the marriage as legal.
