Even though it's October and the Grand Slam season may has long been over, some scintillating tennis is still being played on the ATP tour. Have a quick look at the top ten hot shots from the Shanghai Rolex Masters, and you'll know what we mean. Which one is your favorite? For us, we've chosen Rafael Nadal's backhand smash. It's such a difficult shot to make, and this one in particular forced Nadal to stretch as high as he could go. Most players would be lucky to get a racket on the ball, but Nadal made the smash look easy.

Honorable mention goes to Santiago Giraldo for pulling off a very ingenious “reverse backhand,” a creative solution to getting himself out of an awkward position at the net, and kudos to Carlos Berlocq for never giving up against Rafael Nadal. That type of effort led to his ridiculous running backhand passing shot that brought the crowd to its feet in Shanghai.
