Serena Williams' Signature Shot

Hey All,

X-cuse me if this has been posted - but they showed it today after Serena's win. I thought it strong. It'a a nice piece, and she looks so good. Venus's is on second link.

Re: Serena Williams' Signature Shot

Personally, Serena should have had the serve. I like that though Remeber seeing it at Australian Open

Re: Serena Williams' Signature Shot

Personally, I think Serena's shot- the one which was so devastating in her 1st USO win was her inside out BACKHAND!!

Re: Serena Williams' Signature Shot

I LOVED IT! The clip was amazing and so truthful! All of the key points Serena outlined were SPOT ON (legs, hipz, etc.). Thanks for sharing this clip

Re: Serena Williams' Signature Shot

Her signature shot is her Serve.
However Vaidisova already did the serve for the Signature Shot series so I guess they couldn't do another serve.
If you look on youtube you will find James Blake signature shot forehand, Vaidisova sig shot serve

Serena's serve is definitely her signature shot. She can flatten it out and place it on a dime. She has very good topspin on her kick serve. The shot is solid and just doesn't break down. The technique is simple and the motion is fluid from the ball toss to her knee bend.

Lightbulb Re: Serena Williams' Signature Shot

The crosscourt backhand return of serve ! She must have hit that shot atleast half a dozen times within 2 return of services agains JJ in Miami.I would be happy to hit 6 in a whole match .

Re: Serena Williams' Signature Shot

In my humble opinion, Serena's signature shot is her serve.

Re: Serena Williams' Signature Shot

IMO, her signature shot is her ferocious return serve, especially on 2nd serve.

Reminds me of James Blake ability and also Fernando Gonzalez in AO 07 mode (whose killer-forehand inspired her that time).

Re: Serena Williams' Signature Shot

I think her best shot is her serve too but her backhand's nothing to turn your nose up.....although..... why they didn't do "you know who" is beyond me (or maybe they'll use her for the volley, since those are pretty good).


So who's done one:
Venus
Serena
James
Nicole

who else?

Re: Serena Williams' Signature Shot

all her shots are huge when on, but there's no doubt that her serve is her signature shot.. without that who knows where she'd be...

Re: Serena Williams' Signature Shot

I would say her return of slow second serve is her signature shot. Just the attitude she does it in and how fast it's returned. Great to watch too

But her serve also is a good one!!
