Gasquet vs Roddick - Wimby 07. Gasquets Backhand was INSANE. I know Andy kept approaching on that wing BUT you still have to hit the shots and Gasquet sure as hell did.

I actually can't remember a time where Gasquet's BH broke down for any period of time. So I decided to make this thread in Honour of the GOAT of 1HBHs. Gasquet 1HBH is more solid than most people's FHs. Who else would run around their forehand and hit a BH.

P.S - 2HBHs just look so silly. LMAO. There is a reason GOAT Tier 1 and Tier 2 players are mostly filled with 1HBHers .

In the video above, you are able to see Nadal attacking Gasquets BH thinking it would create an error BUT what Nadal doesnot realize is that THE GOAT 1HBH is too good for his loopy topspin and schools him appropriately. Tell me one player who can hit a BH smash from the baseline. NUFF SAID.

You can see the look of disbelief on Nadal's face after the shot. Priceless.

I prefer to think about how GOAT 1hbh meekly went out to RF in the semis in probably seventy minutes. so meekly in fact that RF probably needed more warm up for the final....

Ive always thought that Gasquet is overhyped being so supertalented, but that...that was just sick.

I'd never seen that before today, but I can honestly say it's one of the best shots I've ever seen.

Also, Gaudio's was astounding when it was on. Can't remember any specific matches though. Same goes for Korda: 97 Wimbledon vs Sampras, 97 U.S Open vs Sampras, 98 Australian Open vs Rios, 92 French Open until the final, all great play from him, don't remember if it was the backhand specifically that impressed me in these matches though.

And of course the most impressive 1hbh exhibition of all time http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fC3uI-A8fGM
most of these winners are quite literally out of NOWHERE

Awesome ...... long live 1HBH !!! All tennis starter today goes to 2HBH so ...... 1HBH will be very rare in 20 years. Even Federer cannot make any coach to put 1HBH to them.....

Real tennis is played with one-handed backhands. Fact.

Too bad Gasquet's FH is not...well...as good as his BH to say the least.
