The drop shot is a very successful shot if done correctly. It is also a very hard shot to complete because the purpose of the shot is to make the ball land as close as possible to the net without going into the net. There are, however, many players who can hit an excellent drop shot, like Novak Djokovic, for example. He wins many of his points from his drop shot. To preform a drop shot, you must get into the backhand position, leaving one hand on the racquet and slice the ball to put backspin on it so the ball will jump forward on the other side of the court.
