Agassi is best in terms of ball hitting power, beatle fan.
Having watched Andre play live dozens of times since he was 13 and in the juniors, I can promise you Agassi's BH is better than anyone in the game currently aside from Djokovic. If you think Andre's BH was solely "hitting power" you have literally never even watched grainy Youtube videos of him.
 
It’s actually really hard to evaluate his backhand because it’s so much better than his other strokes. I’d have to say the GOAT 2HBH is Djokovic’s because we’ve seen him do so much more from a variety and point construction standpoint. Djokovic is able to defend all types of situations, as is Murray, but also has to attack and counterpunch. Djoker’s DTL backhand especially is an offensive weapon that Murray has never displayed at the same level. That being said, the rest of Djokovic’s game is above Murray’s, which contributes to Djokovic creation situations where he can end points offensively. Murray never had the game to end points when at a slight advantage like Nole does. He always needed to compound several small advantages into a large advantage to create a situation where he could either end the point or force his opponent into an error.

Nole played a similar but more aggressive style to Murray during his 2011-2016 run, but since coming back from injury he’s played much more aggressively and showcased a backhand on or with Murray’s defense while leagues ahead offensively.

Apparently his backhand is considered GOAT in here.
Ok I will make my own website and rate Rodick Berrettini, and Nick's backhand goat status just so someone could reference it.

Why did you take a positive comment in a negative way??
Just because I said his ballstriking power was best, doesn't mean I also said nothing else was good.
Calm down, dude.

Nadal's backhand at #4? Lmao

He lost to Djokovic at RG not long ago mainly because his backhand let him down.
Even when he's able to use it effectively, it still isn't GOAT level.

Murray's backhand is great though.
