    I second that! Dementieva is the Nalbandian of WTA! So much talent but hindered by the serve.

    Lindsay Davenport's two hander and Justine one hander both works of art.

    I can't say ana in this thread although her backhand has significantly improved :( so i have to say Bartoli and Henin.

    Serena's backhand really can be great when she's in zone.

    Henin's backhand is a thing of beauty.

    Justine's backhand is beautiful, but also has the variety to be the best. The fact that it is one handed, and coming from such a small player is a pure bonus for me. Just amazing...

    Henin cause she hits with great variety that few players do. Her Topspin one hander is also a thing of beauty.

    Justine Henin got the best backhand in the WTA tour.

    Agnes Szavay has a really nice backhand. It will be interesting to see what she does over the next couple of years.

    Justine Henin - variety, power, angles, disguise, and flair.

    Justine's backhand is stunning (John Mc Enroe loves it too!)
