I can hit it pretty well off my backhand side if my game is on. I don't think I have EVER hit a dropshot off my forehand though.

My backhand return dropshot is sick! My lob is sicker though, I can hit it like Conchita

Re: Do YOU have a good drop shot?

can you guys give me some tips on drop shot? before I just carve into the bottom of the ball....but this video said do a side spin drop shot because you have MORE CONTROL on the shot..if you just do it at 6 oclock at the bottom of the ball...you have to do it perfectly everytime.....so side spin like 8 to 2 o'clock or something? also someone said you want the drop shot to be at least 3 feet over the net when it drops? any tips would be really appreciated..thanks

Re: Do YOU have a good drop shot?

You can hit an awful dropshot with great success, depending on your positioning and disguise. Obviously though, aim to hit it well.

The answer for me is probably no. But then again, my whole tennis game is one big bluff.

Re: Do YOU have a good drop shot?

No one I played against in high school moved well coming forward, so I had a good drop shot by default

These days the guys move better so I guess it's fair. I can probably count the number of forehand drop shots I've hit on one hand, but my backhand dropper's not awful.

Pretty much

I can only hit a FH dropshot & it's pretty shit.
Can't hit a BH dropshot let alone a decent one handed BH slice

Re: Do YOU have a good drop shot?

Easily the best part about my game although sometimes when i drop shot i don't anticipate the opponent getting to the ball and don't get into a good position for the return, which i need to work on more

Re: Do YOU have a good drop shot?

I used to have an amazing drop shot when I was like 14/15. Not gonna lie, it was so amazing and it worked very well. But then my coach told me to stop using it too much, and now it isn't as good as it used to be because I was afraid to use it

Re: Do YOU have a good drop shot?

Occasionally I can have a very good drop shot, and off of both wings too!

Re: Do YOU have a good drop shot?

Touch and feel is what my game is all about, but I find the forehand drop shot harder to nail than the backhand. It's less natural. Nonetheless, my drop shots are always of an adequate standard at least, and one of my main methods of offence.

Drop shot is my favourite shot together with volley, it used to work fine at "my peak"
