Both have great forehands and clearly their forehands were their best side but you cannot necessarily assume if a player has a better record that they may automatically have a better forehand.
I'd say it's nearly irrelevent. It's a weak correlation at best. To present that as the basis for one's reasoning.....what can be said?
