    There is no better feeling, then serve and volley for an easy point. :)

    Drop shot. I play High School and so people scramble for it, and rarely get it, unless I am playing the better people.

    My favorite shot to hit is the sharply-angled backhand pass crosscourt, everyone is always looking up the line.

    1) A two-handed backhand down the line !!

    2) Crosscourt volley winner off a good passing shot

    3) Service ace right down the tee

    4) Sharp crosscourt forehand on the service line

    5) Slice serve out wide

    Now just imagine hitting all of these in succession !

    Serve - strong or weak, the serve determines who controls the rally, and usually the outcome of the point...

    I gotta go with the forehand. Nothing feels better than ripping a forehand.

    Amen to that.

    But I love my backhand slice too.

    Serve.
    I try to mix things up and it works quite well. It's a fun to see my opponents look a little bit tense when I bounce balls before serving. I mainly play doubles and my partners do volley.

    Any shot that scores a winner. Aces are fun too.

    I think these drop shot artists are sadistic saying they love watching their opponents scramble like hell.

    At least with a service ace and smash there's no suffering since there's nothing you can do but watch.

    I rarely drop shot, unless it was unintentional. Of course, I've yet to play someone I really disliked, hmmmm.....

    Dont you love it when you see 3.0 - 4.5 players scrambling for a really short one, and the run into the net? I have done that to about 5 people already.

    Drop shot or drop volley. I enjoy hitting and watching my drops fall and die with perfect touch. I don't love it so much for watching the opponent run but for the moments when I pull off that perfect drop shot out of nowhere or when I tilt my head slightly while diving for a passing shot and making the incredible angle.

    The most fun shot is a tweener and its even more fun when u hit it for a winner. I think thats the shot that sealed my deal with the head rep.

    I like hitting some nice paced serves, then love to hit an offspeed kicker for gamepoint and watching my opponent flail for a ball bouncing over their head.
