    Moya on the forehand, and Guga on the backhand.

    He's got it right, Moya's has so much pace and spin, that ball has some nasty kick to it. Kobble is right though about those 2 guys, Bruguera has the most recorded spin on forehands ever. Something like 3500 RPM, a service return too.

    Ferrero hits with a lot of spin too, just not as noticeable cause he also puts so much pace on the ball.

    it's tough to say. I think most spaniards hit with a lot of top spin.

    I think Alex Corretja might be the one. I remember a match where he was literally hitting topspin lobs (i think he was a breakpoint down or something). Ferroro should be up there as well. I would say Coria as well. Then probably Moya.

    Not so sure about Guga on the backhand....

    Any spaniard, especially Brugera, or remember the name Alberto Berasitegui or however you spell it. He had the same grip for his forehand as his backhand, now you would have to be able to hit some topspin to do that.

    Id have to say Carlos Moya, he hits so much topspin, just watch a match on ESPN vs. roddick and the ball just pops up off the copurt in a heartbeat.

    Saretta probably has the most extreme grip I've seen and hits with tremendous amounts of topspin.

    Saretta baby, maybe it was you Guernica, but you said it literally comes off the bounce faster than on the fly. Even though we basically know it's not possible, it still must be so EXTREME to even make the illusion. Berasategui must have been insane. Eastern backhand grip on a forehand, lol.

    And Jun I'd have to say Moya hits more, because Coria's balls are too slow to really compare I think.
