Best shots in your repertoire?

Mine are:

Lobs (which could well be moonballs too depending on where my opponent is )
Topspin forehand/backhand in any direction (I say this because I can't slice at all or it's really bad, I can flatten the shots but I rarely do)

What about yours?

How often do you make those?

Best shot is my kick serve.

I'm actualy preety good at making them.I try to hit one of those in every return game of mine and i don't really miss it.Of course it's still not 100% Serena but i love how every time i hit it the people watching me go ,,WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWWWWWW" And lucky you having a kick serve.My serve is by far the worst shot i have.

Re: Best shots in your repertoire?

My forehand (both CC and DTL) and serve. My other shots are just average.

May the HAMMER smash the cross

I can hit an inside out backhand return really well like Serena. It's one of my favourite shots. But otherwise my returns are not that good but they are not that bad either.

Re: Best shots in your repertoire?

FH CC is my absoloute best, I can get some crazy angles and heaps of pace off it.
Inside out FH in any direction is pretty good.
My ROS is pretty good, mainly because I really go after it where as most people in my comp slice it back no matter what.
First serve when it goes in.
BH DTL.

Re: Best shots in your repertoire?

Cross Court and Down The Line Backhand, I love to intimidate my opponents with it Volleys are great too

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.
