    Mine is the super rare 'good' mishit.

    Never duplicated, craziest spins. I especially like the one where I am on my second serve trying to put some spin on it when I hit the ball in two different spots on my racquet and it puts some wicked spin on it and curve on it. Only if this shot could be harnessed and taught.

    I also like my running crosscourt forehand.

    The inside out, forehand slice, dropshot is another one of my best shots. It may not be the best shot in my arsenal, but it's up there.

    incredible mishit dropshots. The other day, I was returning serve, and I was gonna slice it dtl, but the ball hit the frame, and the ball bounced seriously, like half a foot from the net, and w/ incredible slice, bounced over to the left. Lol, that was pure amazing. I'm also pretty good at underhand dropshot serves. Haha

    I would usually say my powerful 2hbh, but yesterday I was out testing the Babolat Aero Storm, and hit a magnificent 1hbh ride on the alley line from outside the court.

    I did this once in a match and it was crazy when I saw it. It looked to be a easy shot to put away but it spun to the left too, right in front of the net. Surprised, he hit it into the net.

    But back on topic, I'd say my best shot is my cross-court forehand that I might use on some points to keep my opponent running then hit the put-away winner.

    The inside out forehand is always a good weapon too. It'll tail away from your opponent's backhand.

    Down the line passing shot from any where. Just a thing of beauty.

    Tough one. I'd say my 75-80 mph out wide slice serve on the deuce side that catches the sideline. Even if my opponent gets to the ball, I drill a crosscourt bh into the open court. If s/he catches on and cheats out wide, I just blast a flat one down the T.

    The shot where I "trick" my opponent into swinging at a shot that's going way out, and then he either hits it out or into the net.

    Haha, yeah. However, in the photog forum, when someone would post tennis pictures, they would always comment on the racquet and form. I guess a lot of people just don't frequent the sports ST because of all the morons in there.

    my fav. shots to hit are probably the inside out forehand or serve n volley.

    my best shots are topspin short angles off both wings.

    Hmm, I don't do enough with my lefty forehand it doesn't break down much...

    My backhand is my "bread, but it does let me down...

    My serve is my "butter" but that lets me down too...

    Hmm...

    I don't know if it's actually my best shot but my if i get my first serve is pretty good. i get cheap points and place it well. but if im not getting it in then all hell breaks loose.


    as for groundies it's my backhand topspin lob.

    My Serve, but it's a little streaky at times.

    My topspin OHBH.

    My FH is just waaay too ambitious, going for shots that i think are possible, but usually miss by half a foot.

    My best shots (when I get them in) are my flat serve and my cross-court 1-handed backhand. They can both be a little inconsistent though.

    Home runs :) If we're talking about consistency I can pull it off 100% of the time.

    If you mean best by most effective, then it'd be my piece of crap kick serve that's faster then my flat... What the heck? xD
