This category is owned by Angie imho.

I can't think of another player who has used this shot as their signature as much as Angie has.

Petra has a great one too.

Who else?

It would have been Robson if she hadn't fucked up her wrist.



But yes, generally lefties have the best forehands down the line. So I'd say Kerber is terms of strategic use of the shot (she always seems to pull it off at the exact right time) but Kvitova in terms overall impressivness of the shot.

Shot of the year?


In all seriousness, a consistently damaging FH DTL is rare because the shot itself is not easy to pull of. The combination of accuracy, power, and control is more difficult to achieve on the FH than it is on the BH. I think there's also a bigger risk to go down the line with power on the FH side. That Angie goes for this shot a lot is quite commendable.

I think Ivanovic should get a honorable mention on this too. It looks easy and flawless yet super powerful when she hit.

No to Kerber.

Davenport, Pierce, Court come to mind.
