Happy Halloween! While you’re getting your best and scariest costumes ready for tonight, we thought we’d give you your tennis fix Halloween style by giving you the scariest shots in the game. Scary good that is.

The serve

There are a lot of players with scary serves starting with our very own Milos “Missile” Raonic. There’s also John Isner, Ivo Karlovic, and of course Serena Williams on the women’s side.


The forehand

Is there anyone with a bigger, more lethal forehand than Juan Martin Del Potro? I am going to go with no.


The backhand

Since I have a soft spot for it, the one-handed backhand is the scariest of them all. That’s why I could watch Roger Federer, Stan Wawrinka, Richard Gasquet, Grigor Dimitrov, Denis Shapovalov, and Justine Henin hit backhands all day long.


The personality

Serena Williams RC 2015

Some players are so fierce and competitive on court, it can be scary to be on the opposite side of the net from them. Who is most intimidating? Serena, Maria Sharapova, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic to name just a few.

You know what else is scary? When you realize that the tennis season is almost over.

Happy trick or treating everyone!
