When I think of players with a great ability to hit lobs I think of Henin, Clijsters (though she retired), Mauresmo and Zvonareva.

Who do you think has the best lobs?:scratch:

Jelena Jankovic.

:hearts: :hearts:

JJ's lob has become entirely convincing.


In her pomp - Martina Hingis was the master of this orgasmic-inducing shot....

Jankovic's one is good.

Jankovic, Henin and Hantuchova

Maria Sharapova hasn't got a bad lob either!...although she barely uses it. I would say JJ's is the best though.

drop-shot and lob was best-mastered Hingis' combination. do u remember her lobs in Ao 2001 QF vs Serena???

Hingis in her heyday, used to drive people mad with her lob. It would just come out of nowhere, and to me Hingis really ushered in the aggressive lob in women's tennis:)

Demska
Nov 25th, 2007, 01:41 PM
Vesnina.

Serena. Seriously she does. I have actually seen Maria hit some good ones and Jankovic too.

Who do you think has the best lobs?:scratch:

I remember Justine hitting some great lobs over the head of Venus at the US open. I think it really stuck in my mind because of how silly it made Venus look. :lol: :lol: Then of course she went on to smoke her in straight set. So yes! I would have to say Justine for sure.

Anyone's whos EVER seen Hingis hit a lob is crazy to say she doesn't have the best. Honestly, she uses them aggressively with a drop shot/lob combo, and hits amazing defensive lobs to get back in the point. I agree with other people who say that JJ, Serena and Patty have great lobs, but NO ONE ever hit a lob like Martina. Check out her AO match with Stosur on youtube if you want to see lobbing a player to perfection. Sam looked like she wanted to cry.

Yes, that one off the volley that Venus hit - no one thought that Justine would even get to the shot let alone lob it! The British commentators were shrieking!!! :eek: . Definitely one of the shots of the tournament. Actually there were loads of shots of the tournament from that match by both players. My favourite match of all time :worship:

The lob is around 6:13

Justine's lobs against Venus in that SF were pretty amazing. And also hit a slice lob against Sveta at MP.

Hingis, Schnyder, and Henin have the best lobs.

Dementieva can hit pretty good lobs off her backhand, especially when she's on the run...

Definitely Hingis

And JJ, Patty and Justine have a great lob too

Check out her AO match with Stosur on youtube if you want to see lobbing a player to perfection. Sam looked like she wanted to cry.

I know, and she did the same to win the mixed doubles final. Even Daniel Nestor got fooled a couple of times by Hingis' lob. :tape:

Hers were the best, closely followed by Kimmie. Oh how I will miss these two, they both had the best defensive and offensive lobs. Some of Kims defensive lobs were darn abusive they were so good. he he :lol:

Currently I guess Henin and yeah I have seen Jankovic use her lobs effectively, yes Schnyder probably has some good lobs too with her skill and talent there's no doubt. I totally agree Serena's lob are rather underrated especially off the backhand she can create some very good lobs.

Hingis just simply had the best feel and disguise for the lob, it's like you know if she's playing well and feeling it you know it's coming but don't know when and all of sudden if she's pushed far from the baseline and you're too close to the net, you suddenly realize oh yeah I forgot she had the best lob. :tape: Nothing you can do about it, it was a charming shot. :p

Dementieva_Dude
Nov 26th, 2007, 04:20 AM
Martina Hingis easily has the best lob :hearts:

Nov 26th, 2007, 04:23 AM
If I remember right, the Hingis /Stosur had 2 in a row, and a 3rd very soon after. That was a good second set and great crowd :bounce:

Maybe someone already mentioned Wozniacki? :shrug: Ive only seen a couple of her matches, she seems to have good feel for it.

Back in her prime, Hingis' lob was one of the best shots around. Effective on most accounts.

Hingis definitely, and Clijsters too

Nov 26th, 2007, 09:05 AM
Hingis Stosur seems to have been lobilicious.

Wow, I watched some points of this match on Youtube and Hingis just played with Sam like she was a kid.

And after all the comments in this thread, I definetly know that Martina has the greatest lob ever!

Henin had a spectacular running backhand lob at the YEC. Can't remember who it was against I think Ana or Maria.

henin made some great lobs this year. The best ones i remember are the ones against venus at the USO and bartoli at YEC:drool: Those were delicious.

The fact that this thread went to 4 pages without any mention of Sanchez-Vicario is sad. She had fantastic overheads and lobs. No one currently playing compares.

SF

I think her drop shots overshadow her lobs whilst excellent that's why even I forgot this charming "bumble bee's" ability with the lob, she had such wonderful hands, her lobs were much more effective when she was playing doubles. Nonetheless, yeah she too had amazing lobs, she had to because her game lacked even more pace than Hingis' and that's something. he he

Nowadays it's much harder to choose, probably Justine. She hit some amazing lobs in Madrid.

Well I don't know who has the best but I think the best I saw was from Masha during the 2006 AO against Henin and it was lefty

Hingis has the best lob i've ever seen. She has such great feel and can use it both offensively and defensively.

Dec 28th, 2007, 08:31 AM
Anyone who saw the 2006 mixed doubles final knows Vera Zvonareva can hit great lobs, specially with her BH. :)

Hingis, Henin and Patty (on her FH) can play beautiful lobs as well.
