My best shot is now hitting the forehand down the line three meters wide from the doubles alley.

Re: What's Your Best Shot?

Well, it changed a lot during the years. I'd say my "most powerful" is Forehand DTL, but my best overall shot is Backhand DTL. My forehand can be better than my backhand, but also very worse if I'm tense. BH's more of a barometer of my play.

Oh, and I got a 10+ ace serve too

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.
Been around the world, copped all 4 thrice.

Re: What's Your Best Shot?

first serve is a great weapon of mine, but since I got a low back injury I had to change the movement and itīs still good, but I have a too low %. FH is my most solid shot, itīs a huge topspin FH, which gets really effective mostly CC. I have a great tight angle CC as my best shot I guess.
BH the few days itīs on it is a nice flat and secure shot both CC (mostly) and DTL, but those days happen once every 5-7 so I mostly slice the shot out of it and (i know this isnīt flattering) but I have a really tricky sliced FH too and a good chop return

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.
