Who in your opinion has the better backhand Murray or Djokovic? I personally prefer Djoker's because he is more aggressive with it rather than Murray who bunts the ball back.

I like both of theirs. Murray mixes in a lot of slices so he can frustrate his opponent and lull them to sleep. Djokovic is more aggressive and can dictate the points better than Murray off that wing. Murray's bh might be less error-prone than Djokovic's. Djokovic's bh is more of an offesive weapon than Murray's and that allows Djokovic to do things like drop shots out of the blue (if only he could be more accurate with those droppers).

I actually think Djokovic's backhand is a very safe shot its his forehand that lets him down.

For Djokovic, the bh is very reliable. No disputing that and it's a thing of beauty. If his forehand is off, he might put a little too much from the backhand to compensate.

Murrays ability to hit the lines with his bh gets my vote, he needs to go for it more imho

Djokovic, it's really solid and he gets a good low spin. Murray's just a notch lower than when it comes to consistency. Basically, if either one of them is losing a match because of their BH, it'll be Murray.
