everyone marvels at federer's backhand. sure, he can hit some nice shots off that wing but i hope this ends the debate that he has "a great backhand" and "has the best 1-handed backhand in the game." i'd take gaudio's backhand in a heartbeat over federer's. the rest of gaudio's game is light years below federer's but (desite being a good 3-4 inches shorter than federer) i've never seen gaudio struggle with high backhands like federer did today. even against nadal.
