    LOL, the only problem I have is your posts. It is so moronic and far out there that someone nees to bring some balance. Very lame post on Rodger and you made a very lame post here.

    There is barely any truth in anything you write. Also, I am never kidding with you.

    LOL, but it is only you I am talking to????? Hello?

    I am only countering YOUR posts. HELLO????

    It is my opinion that you leave out, mislead, misunderstand, provide false information, and give out posts that beg to be countered. I am simply offering my opposite opinion.

    If you are going to post, you have to know someone will counter right? Didn't you just do that to my thread in another post? Remember my comment "wish it were that easy". You countered right? ;)

    It's funny how you try to pick a fight with me:mrgreen: ever time you have problems at home.

    Look be a man and take care of your problems, I am going to be posting my opinions long after you have expired:p

    I just think that it is sad you make snide coments to people on the boards that are trying to help just so that you can make yourself feel better.

    But hey that is you and always will be, in the end I really do feel sorry for you cause you are an old angry man, obviously not happy about they way his life is going:confused:

    Lendl had a very good backhand. I would reserve my vote on whether it is one to copy. But certainly, I as well admired the power and placement the man could hit from the backhand side. A beauty indeed. Remember though Lendl used a Continental grip. He had an incredibly strong arm to handle the shots hit to him on that side. He also used a very straight wrist and sometimes his wrist (or hand) was bent back and straightened his hand at contact. In other words, he sort of allowed the racquet to roll back up allowing his wrist to straighten as he made contact. I believe this added a "wrist release" into the ball for a bit more power.

    Although I will agree with you that Lendl had a great backhand, I don't know if it is one to copy unless someone wanted to use a Continental grip. Otherwise, he used classic form.

    How about Mrs. Agassi? While Steffi was famous for her FH, her slice BH was a very effective/neutralizing shot from the baseline? As I'm working on a 1h-BH, I find I like Slice a lot and really only need Top for passing shots. Part of this is as a lefty, most of my slices are going to people's FHs and that seems to give them fits.

    BTW, anyone have posts or pics of Edberg and Graff's backhands? Hey I'm a little oldschool!

    It looks like a 3.5 backhand to me. I guess he used it effectively, but by no means elegant.

    What about Roddick's slice backhand? Any hack could hit like that.

    I like Baghdatis.. it's a fairly simple backhand... very nice and clean.... Gasquet's is kinda fancy... I wouldn't copy his

    Pavel is probably the best one handed backhand to emulate. Hardest to emulate because it's so smooth.

    But he takes it off the bounce all the time; good eyes, judgment and coordination. Incredible form and it shows as his backhand is one of the best.
