    outside of the top 4? :D

    You would "outside of the top 4" is pretty straightforward.

    Recently, Nishikori made a really good passing shot in the Tokyo final against Raonic

    Nadal pulling a FH passing shot against Federer in Wimbledon 2008 Final 4th set TB 7-7.

    Federer pulling a BH passing shot against Nadal in Wimbledon 2008 Final 4th Set TB 7-8. Saving championship point.

    These two points happened back-to-back.

    People outside the top 4 simply couldn't do that.

    Not 5 specific passing shots. OP is asking which players outside of the top 5 have the best passing abilities. (at least I think. Not 100% clear so it could be interpreted both ways)

    Sure Federer had all the pressure on him when he hit that passing shot, but imo Nadal's was just ridiculous.

    This one I like a lot as well:

    Hewitt passing shots against Sampras at 2001 US Open Final were just amazing. He made look Sampras like a crappy S&V Player not better than Llodra.

    Regards.
