Re: What's Your Best Shot?

My serve is probably my better shot. I usually serve and volley. Backhand comes second I guess. My worst shot is the forehand.

Re: What's Your Best Shot?

Either CC Backhand or DTL Backhand. I love hitting it DTL, so I chose that one.

Re: What's Your Best Shot?

My Backhand cross court followed by my backhand down the line. I have always hand a naturally good backhand. Sometimes my forehand can go off and I can lose confidence and get passive but I have so much confidence in my backhand. I just step into it and wack it every time and more often then not it goes in and its near the lines.

Re: What's Your Best Shot?

Used to be my serve, then my backhand and now it's my FH CC.

Re: What's Your Best Shot?

My Favorite shot is definitely the forehand cross court. I love watching my opponents faces when I slam back their serves cross court straight past them for winners. Hitting the back hand down the line is also pretty damn satisfying.

Re: What's Your Best Shot?

Definitely 100% of my knowledge my groundies are the strongest basis of my game. As which is my best shot (which is off the ground), somedays my FH CC & s'times DTL is really good when its on, but I make more errors off those shots when I don't get them right.

Whereas with my BH DTL & CC they are really good shots when they are on, however since they are the more solid shots in my game, I'll make less errors but make less winners than off my FH CC or DTL.

At the moment I would say my BH CC, hit some really awesome ones by taking them really early so yeah I'll say that is my best shot. In general probably my 2 handed backhand all-round (CC & DTL - more consistent). Its tough.

Re: What's Your Best Shot?

My drop shots used to be really good, now they're like lobs. My backhand was also my more powerful stroke, now I hit it long all the time.

I need to practice more.

Re: What's Your Best Shot?

I think my forehand is quite good, I love to hit it My BH CC is good too, if I have the time to hit it correctly. My double faults are helping too, my opponents usually

Wozniak~ElTabakh ~Marino~Eugenie Bouchard...and the other Canucks!
Maria Sharapova~Anna Chakvetadze~Jelena Dokic~Laura Robson ~Sabine Lisicki
