YES, he was/is that good

Let me guess. His opponent hits a drop shot, Djokovic gets there while stretching like an elastic band and hits a short cross court winner. x100
No. There's a bunch of ridiculous passing shot winners from seemingly hopeless positions from the baseline though

Add in making and insane get, pulled out wide past the doubles alley, contorting into a pretzel shape, resuming human shape again temporarily and resuming 22 ball rally. x500

Yeah I get it but all of his highlight shots are him getting to an impossible ball, stretching and then hitting a sharp cross court shot.
But whatever, all nadal's highlights are passing shots or banana shots, usually both at the same time. All Gasquet highlights are backhand winners, all Delpo highlights are forehand winners and all Murray highlights are non-existent.;)

What exactly is meant by 'a banana shot'?
Can't tell if genuinely interested or sarcastic. It's a shot which curves from inside the court, looking like it will go out and then curving back and landing inside the court. In the shape of a banana.

Genuinely interested of course (why would I want to be sarcastic?).



Thanks. I'd heard the expression many times before but never really knew what it meant until now.
Hard to know whether people are actually wanting knowledge or if they're just trolling...too many of them on this site.

I find it best never to try and second-guess people's intentions. If they ask me a question I can answer, I will answer it (unless it's a repeated question in which case I will suspect trolling).

over-rated. all mediocre players hit good shots once on a while
While that is true (don't get many better highlight videos than some of Dustin Brown or Gael Monfils for example) Djokovic has been a great player and will rightly be regarded as among the greatest of all time. Don't particularly like the guy myself, but credit where it's due, and it is due.
