My favorite is a topspin lob winner.

Aw, it is just so very sweet. Your opponents have both come to net, believing they are on offense. They have issued a challenge: "Try to blast the ball past us, we dare you!"

And then I whip a topspin lob over them, turning defense into offense.

The very best part is how they always run for it. But they are never, ever fast enough to catch up with it if it bounces because of the spin.

Sometimes there is even a soundtrack when they try to run it down. They crash into the back curtain ("Ka-thunk!" followed by "Are you OK?"). Or they barely get a racket on it and try to throw it over one shoulder and spike it into a light fixture ("Clooooong!").

Good times.
