Favourite Shot to Hit.

What's your favourite shot to hit?


To me, there's nothing better than hitting a clean and powerful ace down the T.




Honourable mention to a Vika style jumping forehand swing volley. Only works about 40% of the time for me though.

Re: Favourite Shot to Hit.

Two-handed backhand ROS. I prefer inside out on deuce court but either court and either direction is good.



This is more a reaction shot for me. I find, the harder someone serves to my backhand, the faster the ball goes back.

Drop shot. There is nothing more orgasmic for me than the feeling when you manage to hit a perfect drop

Re: Favourite Shot to Hit.

Strong and mean strike on a second serve. Particular fave for me is lefty forehand down the deuce court line.

I'm not so good at it I can hit winners all the time, but if I hit my returns (either wing, but FH is better) quite well at worst I'll start in a good position in the rally.

Still don't win matches . But my past couple of matches I've improved so hopefully soon .

Re: Favourite Shot to Hit.

Wild forehand into the net

My 2nd fave shot is a crosscourt backhand into the doubles alley . The only problem is that i usually only make that shot in singles matches

Re: Favourite Shot to Hit.

The running short cross forehand. Even though the backhand down the line is my best shot.

Re: Favourite Shot to Hit.

my favorit shot is to run around my backhand on return and play the FH longline (on AD side)

and it´s even more fun in doubles when the guy on the net is crossing and open up the longline side complete

Re: Favourite Shot to Hit.

Normally my BHCC is my best shot but for some reason I can't do it anymore

So it would have to be my dropshot (+ lob) combination. Orgasmic, most people never get to the dropshot but if they do they almost NEVER get the lob (it has happened once which I replied with another dropshot which one me the point)

Re: Favourite Shot to Hit.

Dry volleys. Especially on the FH. Maybe even fake going for the cross court smash, then swing at it down the line.

Re: Favourite Shot to Hit.

Just in the middle of the court, when the balls comes at you, kinda low bouncing, I just like having the time to set up, then smack my FH down the line

FH DTL

I love the thought of hitting an Inside Out FH but I can't seem to do it as well

Re: Favourite Shot to Hit.

My double handed backhand slice. Its just so fun to hit and it actually works for me really well. People usually scoff at it but I've also gotten compliments on how the ball stays so low and skids. I also usually can put weird side spins and stuff on it.

Re: Favourite Shot to Hit.

Backhand smash. Or any successful smash but will let out a long groan when it goes into the net.
