    I said it was better by quite a bit, which I thought addressed these things by implication, but, okay, Federer's backhand is more powerful and consistent. Go ahead, start a poll. I think even the people living in the past will agree Federer's backhand is better.

    it's not as consistant.I think his flood of winners against nadal and blakecan be explained by the fact that absolutely no one saw it coming.He literally started using it offensively overnight.Both players positioned themselves crosscourt from Federer's backhand and so could only watch helplessly as Federer ripped it down the line.It's not quite as powerful either.
