    Well, I would assume its a shot that either

    a) The player made popular
    2) The player uses all the time

    Some examples would be Taufik's backhand smash, or Peter Gade's thingy

    A frequently used stroke which characterizes their game, or something they do that is so original and badass that when you say their name the stroke immediately comes to mind.

    My trademark shot is the serve. I do it every game.

    You think you can pull it off if you play against Lin Dan with him serving first?

    Whoever this Lin Dan fellow is, I still have 21 chances to hit the net and make my shot roll over. And I normally get between 3 - 4 of those per game. So I'll serve eventually and get my trademark shot off.

    See, you did know who he was. So why did you lie before and pretended not to know?

    Anyways, this Lin Dan guy's trademark shot is to always win against people who are named Joseph. I have also heard that he has the ability to never concede his serve against people who are named Joseph Pe*****.:D

    Doesnt matter how many joseph(s) are there, no joseph can beat lin dan at the moment, even LCW is finding it difficult to beat lindan, he is just too fast on the court

    the only joseph that might have a shot at lindan is currently ranked 318 at this point. Joseph ROgers is his full name. i would love to see lin dan trash him at any given tournament

    It's usually a shot which is often used by the player. Most of the time, it's THEIR stroke as no one can perform it this good or this way. Gade's fake, Taufik's backhand smash, etc. It's probably also one their favorite shot.
