ARAVANE REZAI matches Serena's forehand in terms of power: I witnessed it! I just don't think she is all there in consistency... no wonder she is yet to win anything major.

Davenport has a killer forehand when she is on and hitting it well, she can drill it into the corners at impressively accurate angles...its killer

The 2 best forehands in the women's game right now.

One is a spin heavy atp-esque forehand that when lined up is deadly esp inside out. Unfortunately Kuznetsova is just a headcase and is not consistent enough with that shot. She has potential to dictate matches on that shot.

The other is just a topspin drive of destruction. Ana Ivanovic is in possession of the best forehand in the WTA right now.

Add Mirza to that as well. The speed I saw coming off of her racquet was ridiculous, especially for how small she is. Of course, it doesn't do any good if it doesn't stay inside the court...

I don't understand how people are mentioning Rezai and Mirza in a thread about best forehands.
For every 10 forehands that go flying past the baseline, they hit one good winner. There is no control or thought that goes into their shots. This is especially true of Rezai. There are tons of forehands that will be mentioned before Mirza not to talk of Rezai.

Best forehand in the game right now, on the run or in position.

Henin when in form. Since she isnt in form right now Ivanovic.

Henin's forehand is never the best on the WTA...it's one of her weaker strokes

Wrong. Her backhand is much more inconsistent.
