Grigolo's FH is pretty, but Iga's FH is closer in fugliness to Khachanov, Tiafoe, Koks. The backswings are so weird, Sviontek's elbow with his FH is so close to her torso.the trademark of the modern ATP forehand is that the takeback is shorter (more compact) and the wrist stays loose which creates the wrist lag.
That's why you see much more of this wrist lag with the typical male player. But Swiantek has it too.
Not sure anyone said exactly that, so you're grappling with a bit of a straw man.Jeezus, people talking about ATP-style forehand being the difference. Very typical TTW lameness. That's not the difference.
If there is a shot that Swiatek is using to gain the upper-hand, it is her *backhand*. Not the forehand. Her backhand sets up her forehand.
well, you both are probably kind of rightWell said. We can agree to disagree.
Yes. There's so much depth in the WTA and it's been that way for a long time.Updated WTA majors winners since 2010 (not named Serena):

The WTA is incredibly strong with so many majors-winning talents. Swiatek handled herself well all throughout this French Open, and won every match in convincing fashion. From the looks of her game, she is not seen her final major--and neither has Kenin.
