Safin and Federer out of the current crop because of their accuracy and pace. You know me, Rios has got to be up there for effectiveness because of the way he can hit angles and toy with opponents. For sheer power, who can top Gonzo.

lendl or fed, fed can punish from anywhere on the court so mobile

When I think forehand, I think Lendl.

Hard, heavy, penetrating, deep, consistent. The stuff of nightmares.

Lendl is synonymous with Forehand.

Of the current crop, I'd pick Enquist if he's having a good day.

It may have been awhile since i've seen him play, but i remember thinking "Wow!" when i watched Blake play last year at the US Open.

I think that Ferrero's inside out is amazing.

Also when Joachim Johansson is on form, then that is scary, the power and accuracy is out of this world!.

Lendl and Sampras.
Lendl ushered the power baseline game.
Sampras' cross-court forehand made even Agassi late on the swing even though he was there waiting for it many times.

Heard of Lendlyzing, Aggasifrying, Safinatting your forehand, but Serene is too calm a term. A-bomb a great name for any forehand

Moya, my main man, has the best. Such power, with such spin, with such mobility. He's put it this way, out of this world when he's on. Gonzo has the most power of any forehand. Ferrero's is huge, but not the biggest out there, it just seems so much better because his backhand is hella good too, and he can set up the forehand more often and better than a lot of your normal clay courters. El Aynaoui vs. Hewitt 2003 Aussie 4th round, one of the most amazing displays of just whacking a forehand all match long.

Liam is right also, Joachim was hitting the ball harder than EVER over those past few weeks, it was insane to see.
