To me, the feeling a smacking a clean backhand winner can't be beat.  Easy overheads are not bad, either.  Maybe you should add overheads and aces to the list.   
Lots of people make passes at me, I'm a tennis player!

The volley feels great when hit.............especially, a perfectly executed droppah!

Half-volley!

I love to S & V and taking my 2nd shot, the half volley, which is supposed to be defensive and turning into an offensive, sometimes outright winner feels magical! :king:

....and then to look up and see my opponents face after he thought he cracked a great return....priceless! :gleam:

That is a really good one!   I think this is one of the most deflating things in tennis to an opponent when you take their sweet return and half-volley it right back up.   Much of that, and they might be handing you the match unless they are really game mentally.

The worm dance.

oh wait, we are talking tennis. I would probably have said volleys too (and i probably still will) but jeffrx has a good point. Especially with a one handed backhand, hitting a clean winner or even a passing shot when your opponent thinks he has you cornered is one of the best feelings in the world. Forehand winners too but they are a bit more frequent.


But yeah volleys are awesome. Especially after a decent point from the back and then you come in on a nice approach shot and hit a nice volley off your feet to win the point.

I chose the forehand, which has been my monster shot in the past. But right now it's completely in disarray. But then everthing is messed up. Everything but the volleys. They are still decent.

The cross court forehand off speed dipper passing shot.  Love it!
I was at this casino minding my own business, and this guy came up to me and said, "You're gonna have to move, you're blocking a fire exit." As though if there was a fire, I wasn't gonna run. If you're flammible and have legs, you are never blocking a fire exit.  - Mitch Hedberg

I hit one just like yours recently and had to mention about it being like yours to the opponents (VIC and MC) that I burnt with it..........it felt perfectly smooth.  Not alot of power, rolled it over, and VIC didn't see it coming at all!   :)

I love my forehandS. I use a one handed forehand and a two hander. So when the one hander is off, the 2 hander is on fire... I get power and control with my two hander, I can hit a lob and can hit with alot of spin and I can flaten it out for winners and I have a good 2 hand slice and my returns are really good with the 2 hand forehand
I love Serena. Venus, Davenport,Seles

A lightly hit single handed topspin backhand cross court from service box to service box at an extreme angle is toasty.

I say it would have to be an approach shot, but besides that it would be backhand winner down the line. The backhand is so deceptive( especially my backhand ), all i use it for it to open up the court and hit really hard angles.

A forehand passing shot winner cross court or down the line is awesome especially against an aggressive volleyer who has to start playing at the baseline.  :)~
