Gasquet vs Dimitrov: which backhand has more topspin?
 
Dunno, both look pretty loopy most of the time.

I think Richard has more topspin... Would be surprised if anyone on tour hits more topspin on their backhand than he does.

gasquet's backhand is far more superior than dimitrov's and not just because it has more spin. his whole game is built around its flexibility and reliability and when he decides to rip it, it's a thing of beauty. during the run of fall tournaments last year his backhand was dialed in. he was anticipating well and hitting clean winners off of his opponent's incoming shots that were barely a few inches high off the ground. that takes real skill.

Why? Is Dimitrov trying to copy Gasquet's backhand - is he finished with Federer's game?

No I'm accusing Dimitrov of copying Federer ... but I guess everyone knows that!

yeah, its crazy! I figures some people would pick Grigor because they like him, but it seems to be a clear cut response!

Gasquet...he has more extreme grip and extreme long backswing......you should see the angles he can come up with due to topspin.

Stupid question. Gasquet.

That's like asking who has more topspin on their FH - Nadal or Del Potro.

always_crosscourt 02-15-2013 05:19 PM

I think I saw a poll: who has the most topspin on their backhand: Gasquet or Kuerten?

And Kuerten had all the votes, and Gasquet had none of them.

That's amazing considering Kuerten wasn't using the most modern strings to get the most spin.

Also Kuerten's grip might have been more extreme than Gasquet's, but I didn't find his racket head speed to be anywhere near that of Gasquet's - and racket head speed generates the spin after all.

So I dunno, would you say Kuerten has more topspin off the backhand than Gasquet?

They both used Extreme Eastern BH

lol is this a serious thread? If you voted against Gasquet, you don't watch tennis.

MindoverMatter 02-15-2013 07:04 PM

Aw come on, who voted for Dimitrov?

Relinquis 02-15-2013 11:33 PM

Gasquet is to backhands what Nadal is to forehands...

Tenez101 02-15-2013 11:43 PM

Why is Federer not a poll option?
