I hit the greatest shot today !

If I could perfect this shot I would be #1 on the atp tour !

I hit a wicked shot that hit the net post richoched across the court
and hit the other net post and dropped in just over the net.

Needless to say even Rafa the***aroach could not have played that
ball.

Anybody ever seen or heard of that happening before ?

And you were so amazed and proud that you made two double-faults and one
unforced error after that, losing your service game :-)

wow that must've been an amazing shot, done the backspin slice that jumps
back over the net several times, plus hit a lamp post and it ricochets back
into the court, but nothing like hitting both net posts!

I played indoor mock tennis match with a net split in 2 and 3 dustbins
as posts.. one in the center

I hit one shot that the other guy was making move for then  left cos
he thought it was going into center  dustbin or trash can but instead
it went round the center  rim 360 before casually  dropped in on  his
side of the court - even though it was mock tennis its I'd still rate
it as the best / funniest shot I ever hit  i.e. it was so slow when it
went round the damm rim the other guy couldnt believe it when it went
all the way round then dropped on his side , almost like I was using
the damm force : )

I once hit a lob that hit a bird in the sky, fell straight back down
again and landed on top of the net cord, then dribbled over onto his
side of the court.... turned into a perfect dropshot! I then SERVED
the bird for dinner that evening,

I don't know. I could somehow envision Rafa tracking that ball on its
most unusual flight,
sliding 10 feet on a hard court to retrieve it, stopping himself 1
inch short of the net, hitting a redrop that
barely clears the net (with severe backspin no less) and finishing it
all off by yelling VAMOS!

After watching some of those points at AO, you'd put it past him to
get to a ball?

If he was already moving into the net, I could see him getting it.

Not in singles, on a doubles court with singles sticks -- which is how
the pros usually play, and you should, too -- because the net posts
are out.

Anyone else routinely carry singles sticks around with them when they
play?
