I guess maybe I should've split "drop" into forehand and backhand, seeing as my backhand drop is my favorite shot and my forehand drop doesn't get much use and doesn't work nearly as well anyway...oh well.

Forehand Drive. I guess it's a forehand flat.

Topspin forehand is clearly my favorite and most consistent shot. I can keep going at it all day long.

Favorite shot: Flat forehand; it stays low and really penetrates the opponent's defense.

Most consistant shot: Topspin forehand; very little topspin to keep it in play and it maintains good depth.

Side-spin serve, brushing the ball hard from 9 to 3 o'clock. For some reason, I am very consistent with this shot, and the ball just floats into the ad service court. It confuses the opponents at first, and it's so slow I can charge the net behind it. Nobody knows what it will do when it lands. Sometimes it looks like it's clearly going wide, but then floats back inside the line, catching the opponent flat footed. Unless the serve bounces unusually high, it's hard for the opponent to put any pace on the return.

It's definitely a girly shot. I only bring it out a few times a set.

One handed backhand short angle. Did it to a guy three times in a row a couple of weeks ago and he slammed his racquet with Safin-esque style. :)

What about returns? I'd say any return, forehand, and second serve.

You know...I don't even actually know what a tweener shot is; I only know what a tweener racket is. Care to elaborate?

Serve is by far the most fun shot to hit in tennis (at least for me). It helps that it's also my best shot. Other than that, for shots that I don't have complete control over, I really enjoy the one-handed backhand down the line.

my most reliable shot is my forehand passing shot down the line and my favorite shot is my inside-out forehand.

Favorite shot is inside-out forehand though I think my most consistent is my cross court backhand. Ever since I changed my forehand grip my backhand has become my most consistent shot.

its just a shot hit between the legs.

my favorite would have to be the high forehand drive. most consistent is probably the ts forehand.

most consistent shots are forehand topspin and backhand slice. favorite shots are the volleys. they're not my best shots but they're the most satisfying for me.

Forehand drive (?) at shoulder height, makes the ball curve in flight from left to right.

Most consistent:

Forehand with topspin!

Tough one between my topspin serve, kick serve, and 2hbh topspin. I can rally 2hbh crosscourt all day.

Haha funny :)

Two handed backhand is my most consistent shot, rarely make a mistake or forced into error on that side.
