    I thought it would be cool idea to have a running thread with some cool shots and discuss them ...

    let me start wt a couple of amazing shots..

    Tipsy (posted by Starwind)

    Delpo (posted by sixone90)

    I think every stroke in tennis is a specialty shot because no two players hit the ball identically, even if their form is identical. Personally, my specialty shot is a stabbing backhand slice. It's sick for hitting balls I could never get with anything else, even if its like 6-7 feet away from me. Everyone sorta develops a unique skill set and tools they can use to their advantage; that's whats great about sports, and this thread.

    Wow.. that Agassi behind your back smash(?) shot is amazing..

    Fed shot is brilliant too.. Henman, the great volleyer he is.. did get that tweener/trick shot back.. ofcourse his USO shot against Novak beats this one..

    Odd, I can't imagine why that would give you a virus.. Granted, I need to get some new anti-virus software, but still, I don't think that it would actually make a difference for you guys. At least, I hope not.. =/

    It's just a youtube link, so I'm surprised to learn that it gave you the virus. But just as well, in case it does, don't use the links then if you think that you might get a virus.

    The tipsyshot is a wicked one. I had no clue what had happened untill they zoomed all the way in. talk about misdirection!


    I was really happy to see the delpo post too. I was playing a student the other day and pulled off the same thing by accident. They hit a particularly good drop shot and of course, not to be out done I ran it down. I was so intent on getting to the ball that I couldn't put the brakes on(hard-true) and tried to be creative. Granted it was't any where as clean as his but still very cool!

    Great finds!
