    The better backhand than forehand fallacy

    Seen many amateurs claiming their backhand is better than their forehand. When it is true it is always because their forehand is crappy. The bad thing is the players suffering from a crappy forehand, are proud as if it was a good thing. Looked for threads over this forum and seen many claims...

    Djokovic vs Wawrinka Forehand
