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.

Re: Best shots in your repertoire?

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.

Re: Best shots in your repertoire?

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