But I will put 100 to my dropshot and if everyone returns them with ease and I don't get any free points then I will eat my words. lol

But it isn't a free point, have you ever seen an in-form Agnieszka Radwanska playing? ;) Main purpose of a dropshot is luring opponent to net so you can lob/pass them, yet once in a while the dropshot may be a winner as well.

Hi all, I'm a bit surprised about what is written here about the dropshot (Nadal shot: I still don't know how to hit it, so I'm not competent to discuss this :wink: ). I'm not very competent on online games either ... I mostly play World Tour. But: Whereas I have high skills in dropshot, I almost never can make a direct winner out of it, though it should be more often. On the contrary, it is too very often a short and slow shot that can easily be punished by the opponent! My concern about dropshots is that they are indeed way too easy to hit, they should land in the net more often. It's about height and bounce I think. Dropshots shouldn't clear the net so highly and bounce so highly over the net - I'm going to watch a bit of Roland Garros in that respect to see if I'm right :lol: .

"Nadal shot" lol what a name !!!
I don't know why but I think I am a bit responsable about that but any way , If u want to talk about unrealistic shots ok NP
The "nadal shot " is may be a bit exagerated but what about power shots ?
u all seem forgeting that ?
there is no way to counter a power player without using these "nadal shots" (and when I say power players, I mean REAL,GREAT,HUGE power players)
I think that the Nadal shots are more realistic than flat shots in TE , especially on clay !
anyway , this is my oppinion abt that
conserning drop Shots : I don't think there is something wrong with that !
and about the Slice acceleration : I think yes , it's unrealistic even if I use it sometimes But there are only few players that use that shot

K I don't agree with a lot of peoples opinions about realism, but I changed my mind about this subject anyhow, although I still think the dropshot is a bit iffy, but it's fine. lol

Now I know what bothered me about the dropshots...it's the old buggy type of shot(that I forgot about) that sometimes happens, that's really short and really low, and super difficult to return. It's different from normal dropshots(at 100 points) and it only happens with crosscourt dropshots...so the normal dropshots even at 100 are not in any way overpowered, only this crosscourt dropshot that's different and too difficult.

I agree with Adner. I think that things to change in this Game are other...(even if TE is very good at the moment :applause: , I mean the "superslice serve"), nor the dropshot or "Nadal shot".
The queen of theDropshot!
