    Which two players currently playing on the men's side have the best looking twohander and most effective twohander? They can be the same person if you'd like.

    Pick any top 10 twohander and it is pretty solid except Roddick's. Edge would go to Nalbandian but Nadal and Djokovic are pretty efective both in consistncy and shotmaking.

    I think Berdych has a great two hander, very smooth and very powerful.

    I said THE best, in two different categories. There's got to be a best. So do you guys agree that:

    Most beautiful twohander: Nalbandian
    Most effective twohander: Nalbandian
    ?

    I think Nalbandian and Djokovic both have good two handers. Also I think Safin's backhand is only average.

    uuhhh no brainer Roddick come on! too easy. The way he chokes up on the racquet makes the stroke not only the best looking but also the most powerful and fluid of all the two handers on the pro tour.

    You're being sarcastic, right?


    I personally like Marat's 2HB a lot. Nalbandian's BH is beautiful, too.

    Nalbandian, Nadal, Djokovic, Davydenko, and Ferrer all have solid 2HBH. Murray has a good one as well. If Tsonga can put together another impressive tournament run, we could add him in.

    Armenians seem to worship 2HBH's (Agassi and Nalbandian)...haha

    Roddick's backhand isn't THAT bad, though he has some questionable mechanics behind it.

    Back to the question:
    Nalbandian has the BEST-looking backhand (a big screw you to the OHBHers). Djokovic's backhand is effective enough to win the point or setup for the forehand winner.

    i gotta go with Djokovic and Nadal. both of their 2hb's are very reliable and effective. Djokovic has a little more power in his stroke tho. but Nadal's is so consistent. possibly the most consistent 2hb on the tour.

    Definetly Nalbandian, although I also like Baghdatis' backhand.
