Re: The most satisfying shot in tennis?

Backhand slice (when I'm the one hitting it). To watch... maybe an inside-out forehand crosscourt return/wrongfooter; or down the line.

Backhand overhead smash? backhand down the line return winner? stop volley? Offensive topspin lob? I'll put some categories in a poll but feel free to add a shot by a player you saw (male or female) or did yourself in a match.

Oh and mine? Over the years I would say I love hitting the backhand overhead, when I pull it off I always scream in delight. Hitting a return winner also gives me great pleasure always.
Such a very difficult question...so many shots come to mind....depends on the moment for me.

But I have to say any shot in a clutch situation. Especially if the shot catches the opponent completely off-guard.

Other than that, a booming ROS DTL.
That, to me is like a 'Cuff' or "Swat" (block) in Basketball, followed by a shout of "Get that shit outta here!".

Re: The most satisfying shot in tennis?

One particular shot I like is Kerber's running forehand out wide. She is able to hit it up that line in a lefty-stylish way, the way Patty Schnyder used to flatten her out forehand.
Otherwise I like the out wide serve that takes opponents way off court to return

Serena just provided the most visible proof that a RoS winner is the most satisfying shot. I'm sticking to the OP.

Re: The most satisfying shot in tennis?

It is, I believe, the service return winner. It just feels extremely satisfying to shut down your opponent's serve, most likely when he/she is probably still in his/her service motion.

Re: The most satisfying shot in tennis?

Running passing shot always looks and feels triumphant for sure.

I also think there is a certain oomph you feel, when you get up to a drop shot and just kill it for a winner.
