    I was watching some match on the Tennis Channel with two guys playing yesterday. One of them had a beautiful one handed backhand, the best I had ever seen. He ended up losing. Anyone know what I'm talking about and if they do, do they have a name?

    If he's wearing a hat backwards....


    Gasquet or Haas, more then likely Gasquet.



    Then there's Ljubicic, Volandri, Pavel, etc.


    But more then likely it's Gasquet.

    Gasquet most likely. To confirm this, was his backhand slice kinda awkward looking?

    You may have heard of him, a guy by the name of Roger Federer.

    I looked it up, it is Gasquet. I was watching him rally and when I looked at the score I was shocked. His strokes are so nice.

    Neither Gasquet nor Federer lost yesterday, so I guess they're out of the question. My best bet would be Tommy Haas.

    Did he look like this?

    I don't even think Gasquet played yesterday. He retired today against Hewitt.

    This is Gasquet:

    Is that a leather grip?

    he's been using head calfskin for many years now. he only started using a tourna grip over the calfskin about a year and a half to 2 years ago.
