Peak of all active players: Federer by a mile
I think Brett.
20´s: Tilden and Cochet
40´s: Jack Kramer ( the big game and % father)
60´s: Santana and Laver.Fletcher and Fraser come next
70´s: Newcombe,Borg.Panatta,Mayer,Smith,Gimeno, too
90´s: Agassi,Sampras and Courier.Also mention to Medvedev,Kafelnikov,Muster.
00´s: Federer,Safin, Djokovic and Murray.Roddick, Nadal and Ferrer, next
I am sure I forgot a few good ones...
Your lack of knowledge is hilarious
federer in 2
what of those players did you ever heard of...I mean, before 1990 or so? I think I just found another guy to break my ass laughing at in you.
Verdasco by far!
Can you be so nice to tell me where did I fail?
APMEK,ABMK,FEDRULZ,5555 the gran slam of illiteracy¡¡¡
TMF is the YEC¡¡¡¡
Best as in the most efficient or the most beautiful?
I dont find 2hbh nice to watch so imo 1 hbh are far more superior in style
Nadal. If Federer says he wants to have that shot, then it has to be Nadal's FH.
at its peak, id have to say federer's as well. he can roll it, flatten it out, so much versatility. and thats coming from a nadal fan. nadal's is a bit 1 dimensional. Sampras had a rocket of a forehand on the run. Overall, I'd give it to Fed.
why do you think fed would want rafs FH? rafs FH works for raf but it wouldnt suit feds game. plus, i think nole likes rafa's fh a little more
Oh great, another thread like this. Probably Nadal right now.
Granville hands down
when fed was confronted in an on court interviwe that nadal was asked what shot of fed hed like to have and nadal said the FH, they asked fed what shot of rafa hed like to have in return. fed laughed and said something like "i dont know.. probably his FH as well"
He has said it.
You're either trolling, or know very little about tennis. Perhaps both.
There's is no definite answer, it's just a matter of opinion. You'll have all the hardcore Federer/Nadal fans saying them two, but it's really hard to tell. Obviously, as they're both such good players, they have amazing forehands, but I don't know who's is the 'best'!
I think Del Potro's is great, and Fernando Gonzalez's was amazing when it was ON!
On the Women's side, I think Ivanovic's is incredible, again, when it is ON!
i definitely agree. Gonzo's forehand was pretty incredible, but a little wild. Delpo's is huge but I'm not too sure he has versatility, its either all or nothing. I'm a huge nadal fan but i wouldn't say his is the best. it's definitely improved and become more of a weapon that just a grind-down-his-opponent shot that it was early in his career.
Federer,Delpo,and Djesus. Berdych too when he is playing well.
Fed could hit his own fh and then rafas fh from his bh Wing. Thats probably what he was thinking. Then again Granvile would destroy them both with goating flat powershots.
All time best for me is Agassi.
Backhand as well.
is that edberg?
If so, you fail.
As long as he didn't have to run, which wasn't often.
So, you're not sure who that is?
He was just being Nice. Roger doesnt want à shot from rafa since fast legs and leftiness is not à shot
Federer, Djokovic, Verdasco during the 2009 AO, Delpo during the 2009 USO, Nadal whenever he plays Federer
The Edberg FH was considered by many to be his greatest weakness. It was, at times, rather erratic. Announcers during his playing years would frequently make comments about this. Tale a gander at this mini bio/analysis:
The Aphex response to kiki's post was somewhat amusing (I assume that it was meant to be ironic). Don't know about these later ones tho'. They just appear to be vicious and unwarranted.
Also, I agree with the posters who suggested the Gonzo FH to be worthy of consideration.
Federer by a mile, its the best shot in tennis
Often forgotten killer fhs, but at their very best they were simply devastating.
Did you ever heard about the players I mentioned? expert posters will make a similar list to mine...wanna ask?
Moya,Mecir,Rios were also top ones.So were Beasategui and magnus Gustaffson.Please, newtards take notice
Neither Moya nor Berasategui had backhands, it speaks volumes of how great the fhs were.
M.Gustafsson had the ugliest strokes ever but the guy was a workhorse.
Rios= pure genius.
Mecir was before my time..no comment on that.
Gustaffosn had a hard one.He was not flashy, though.
Federer probably has the best FH in history, or at least the Open Era.
I can't stand your trolling, or do you seriously rank Murray's FH as one of the best of the 00's. Give me a break, please. Your posts are IN-SANE! Perhaps your knowledge of older eras is good but do you know even anything about the last 10 or so years other than Nadal owns Federer.
Well, I wasn't being serious...
Verdasco, Wawrinka, Gasquet, Isner
In all seriousness now, in Federer's prime his forehand was the best in history. So much versatility, incredible angles and spins etc. Del Potro, US Open 2009, hit some of the best forehands of all time imo.
What makes you so nervous?
Couldn't tell. Not everyone knows that Edberg's FH was his weakness.
Tilden is considered to have the best pre WW forehand, but Cochet´s flat shot was amazing, he played it in a way that ressembles Connors.And Perry was known for being the first that used superb topspin, I think Borg said that Perry was a bit like his grand father or something to that effect.Ping Pong stroke.
Separate names with a comma.
