My favorite shot and most reliable, the back hand slice, made famous by my hero Mats Wilander in 1988 in the US Open final against Lendl. A match that Mats won in 5 sets that took him to World Number 1. Just wish more coaches would teach this shot, it can win you a match and conserve energy, a great shot. If i was ever to 'hang my hat' on a shot i learnt in 30 years of tennis this would be it. A shot to attack with , a shot to defend with , a shot to conserve energy with.
