Single most beautiful shot in history?

What is the single most beautiful swing by a player in tennis history?

My vote goes to either Federer's serve or Wawrinka's backhand. The Fed FH and Karlovic serve are close contenders too.
Mecir BH and McEnroe volley from the old days were also beautiful shots.

Djokovic' overhead smash
Federer's Return on breakpoint off 2nd serve
Nadal's Forehand, 2015 in particular
Wawrinka's return

After all these years I'm still amazed at how beautiful and smooth Federer's inside-out forehand is, so many great slow-mo of it available on YT. A close 2nd would be the Federer serve which is in my opinion the most fluid and aesthetic serving motion I've ever seen.

I can’t decide between peak Fed’s FH and BH, it’s a tie for me.. but I’ll say the FH if you put a gun to my head

most beautiful non-Federer strokes: Karlovic’s serve and Gasquet’s BH

Thank you for your opinion.
It is generally considered an article of faith that Sampras serve motion is more fluid, more aesthetic and more effective than Federer's. And the 2nd serves are not even comparable.

And what would Nole be offering in this department?
