Re: Best shots in your repertoire?

Backhand by far. I can keep up with anyone with it in rallies.
I'd also say my dropshots and junk but I'm still figuring out if they've gotten worse or people I play with have become faster.

Re: Best shots in your repertoire?

My ground strokes. Both are hit very hard and flat with equal power and pretty good precision. I enjoy practicing them the most so they are my most grooved shots. I love nothing more than blasting people off the court with a good one two punch.

Re: Best shots in your repertoire?

Well-placed forehand and brainless backhand are quite good.

1hbh down the line. Even though I practice it so much, my forehand still sucks, I just have no control on it. But with the backhand down the line I am pretty much pin point accurate :P

Re: Best shots in your repertoire?

Mine is Drop Shot, because I know the the drop shot brings your opponent close to the net where he/she is definitely going to feel uncomfortable and possibility of mistakes arises.

Re: Best shots in your repertoire?

Inside out forehead, CC forehand and forehand DTL. I can hit some sweet angles with my forehand. It's my most reliable shot.
Slice backhand and CC backhand. The occasional time I manage a backhand DTL or inside out it generally works too.
Slice volley. I rarely volley except in doubles, and I prefer using a slice volley because I'm better at putting those away than a drive volley or swing volley.

Re: Best shots in your repertoire?

Yesterday I played with new racquet and I must say the difference was huge. In a match friend defeated me, but the game was pretty solid. My forehand has improved a lot and when I'm not totally off, my backhand is consistantly nice too.
Yesterday in some of exchanges I was hitting ball very deep often which was great. It's so easier to win a point if you have depth.

ATM it's even for me hard to say which is my best shot, but I would say both BH CC and FH CC. But I barely hit a winner. I'm kind of a pusher and most points I win with forcing opponent to make an error and ofcourse his UEs helps a lot too.

Oh, I have just reminded that my lob is good too. Although opponent mostly get to the ball, I win the point usually.

Re: Best shots in your repertoire?

I have to say my BH has (sadly) regressed Now my forehand is the killer shot I hit it flat with a very conservative grip.Very similar to Davenport's.

“I'm not used to crying. . . . It's a little difficult. All my life I've had to fight. It's just another fight I'm going to have to learn how to win, that's all. I'm just going to have to keep smiling.”-Serena Williams

Stupidly enough, the running forehand. I think the lack of time means I don't overthink it and do everything a bit better.
