Good job on this list, as Novak does so many subtle things so well. I was also thinking of that extreme angled CC FH. His stretch (to either wing, but more his BH) passing shots are hard to top, especially when he suddenly slams on the brakes and goes DTL. His drop volleys are underrated, and there probably should be at least one ROS inclusion, perhaps, the BH from ad-court?

Kickserve and backhand passing shot with stretch.
His serves are extremely precise and it is beautiful to see slowish serve becoming an ace.
Slide and stretch from Novak means approaching shot from the attacker was great, if he wins a point after that - it is masterpiece. I like BH more since it is more difficult to do.

The FH extremely angled CC is the reason why he's been able to exploit federer's declined movement towards the forehand wing so well post 2011...
The suddenly changed directional FH DTL & IO is the reason why he's been able to do the same with rafa

Good job of pointing out...
I still think he needs improvement in kick serves towards FH though..

So, judging by your two gifs, your favourite shot of Novak is the one he hits against Federer.

:laughing:
It just gets bonus points for the moment when he hit it, just like the one against Nadal. :)

Countless even more stunning DTL backhands out there, these were just easier to gif search than others.

backhand on a stretch BY FAR, especially when he’s far back on the court and completely neutralizes the rally with it or better, turns defense into offense

sexi stuff



this shot is actually the biggest reason I regret not playing a 2HBH
