Jensen whose highest singles ranking was in mid hunderds and wasn't that special as a doubles player either made this point in his column on ESPN. First off I wouldn't exactly call Nalbandian a clay courter. His best results seem to come on hard courts. Secondly Nadal can rip that backhand pretty good given the opportunity. And he can flatten out that forehand occasionally as well although that's getting away from his game. His spin on the forehand is his biggest weapon. And what about Kuerten's backhand?Arguably one of the the most effective one-handed backhands ever if not the most effective one. And where does agassi aka "ultimate hard court ball basher" fit in this picture? During the second phase of his career he rarely ever went for winners.
