The federer squash shot is very handy and really turns points around.
Nadal is really good at it too but i give federer the nod for best squash shot on tour and ever.

Yeah, it's a pretty good shot, and is becoming increasingly useful as the movement to his forehand side has declined quite a lot.

These two squash shots come to mind:

Yes, Roger & Rafa have hit some pretty good ones. I recall Fernando González executing quite few excellent ones as well. Here is one by Paul Henry Mathieu on the German clay:

How about that badminton-type smash Fed hit against Lopez while he had is back-turned away from him? That was quite spectacular!

This one. Watch from 4:20 -

Yes, he is the best doing that very useful shot. He has always been one of the best defenders of the game (because of his great anticipation, great movements, and great slice shots on the run), as well as one of the (if not the) best offensive game too.

This one at 3:49 on mp against Gasquet at Indian Wells in 2006 was amazing.

Makes sense, seeing as pollyballgirl was clearly a cunning disguise for that crazy Rafa fan who makes 1 zillion accounts.

I guess I didn't see enough posts of hers to know that.

If it was *********, Nadal Slam King.....he outdid himself. I could not even see him staying low on his hate of Djokderer

Probably - Jahangir or Jansher at a rough guess.

Yep, there are certainly debates on who is greater out of those 2. Many will say Jahangir for winning something like 555 matches in a row, while others will say Jansher because he basically invented modern squash as it is played today. Jansher revolutionized squash.

I kinda hinted several times that it was him in response to a few of the more early Polly posts. I thought it was clever and funny though, and didn't make an outright accusation. I thought it was kind of clear, though.

I prefer Roger's all day as that is what works for me. However, Nadal's "banana splits" even make Federer scratch his head.

For most out right impossible shot, Nadal wins here for sure. For practical purposes Federer wins, and Soderling wins IMO for some of the most monstrous squash shots.

Sometimes I even wonder if some people even watch tennis. Murray's squash forehand is at amateur level compared to Federer's.

In reality they were just male versions of the real squash GOAT, Susan Devoy. :p

Out of all of Fed's squash shots, I remember this one the best. It happened in a major final, the point overall was epic, Fed was on a dead run, the shot had pace and looked like it barely cleared the net.

Lol don't worry, I always thought that shot by Federer was amazing. But any unbiased fan doesn't like that point for that shot, but the one a couple shots after.
