Tursunov has the #1 or co #1 forehand

Yeah he does. In that final a couple weeks ago against Haas, be came to the net and hit that 114mph forehand winner. Talk about smashing the ball.

didn't know tursunov and haas played finals... they just played yesterday too... i agree, tursonov can absolutely crush that forehand. federer seems like less effort and can do it point after point at times.

it was more like an overhead 'forehand than just a normal forehand. and did the thread starter say Tursonov had the #1 or co #1 forehand?? just because the guy hits the ball hard??? Gonzo hits as hard as he does!!! but no1 considers him having the best or co best forehand. Same with alot of other big forehands on tour. Tursonov hits the ball hard PERIOD But he does not have the #1 or co #1 forehand.

that forehand seriously rips
i thought the ball would be on fire after he and federer just ripped the ball back and forth after one of the points

tursonov generates more power than gonzo with less effort....didn't you watch their match? it's also more compact.....gonzo was getting pushed back in that last tourney where turs beat him..

Well you should have seen the Gonzo playing Lubicich today. Tursonov's forehand surely rips but I think he's prematurely praised because of his inconsistency and the fact that he still loses it mentally.

From shoulder height I think he is the best, but there are so many good forehands all with their own advantages. Federer has the best low ball forehand I have ever seen. Nadal has the most jump, and maybe the best angles. The biggest problem is taking movement and the match-up out of the equation, it means so much. I guess against most players on a hardcourt, with the ball right down the middle, in my strike zone, and my feet set, I would take Tursunov's.
 
One good match and he has the best forehand in the world. Federer's is way more effortless. Unfortunately for Tursinov, Federer can anticipate his forehand whereas when Federer gets to a ball on the forehand side, it's over.

I would still rather have Federer's forehand because Tursunov has more bad days then Federer but holy shi* he can crush it
Yes - I was thinking the same thing. I've been watching quite a few matches as of late and I was stunned at the power of some of those forehands. Seriously - does anyone hit a more explosive forehand? Although as hard as he ripped it, Federer took it in stride. Amazing on both ends. I really enjoyed yesterday's broadcast of tennis.

Actually, TursUnov has had quite a lot of good matches lately.

Agreed. Gonzales also grunts obscenely to make it appear as the shot was hit harder than it actually was.

How does Blake's forehand hold against Tursunov's?

hey i said Gonzo can hit as hard as tursonov not bigger than him. So what if he takes more of a swing than Tursonov the fact is he hits as hard regardless of how long his swing is or how compact Tursonov's is. And so what if he grunts when he hits his shots. If you've actually seen their forehands in action live less than 100 feet away ( like i have more than once) then you can tell me that his grunts make him look like he hits the ball hard.

Tursunov needs less time and effort to hit those monster forehands than Gonzo. You can tell when Gonzales is going to hit a huge forehand, woth Tursunov his swing doesn't look any different, but the ball will fly off his racquet.

thats why we don't consider Gonzo's forehand as good. It takes way to much effort and a huge swing...Tursonov improves on what Gonzo's does by getting a little more pop with less effort.....then Fed takes it one step further, I wouldn't say Fed's is anymore powerful than Tursonov's though its more versatile and deadly..

Maybe it was just last night's match, or the camera-work - but I was really taken back by a couple of forehands in particular. I was thinking of Blake too but don't recall quite that level of explosiveness. Normally I don't notice power as much because there are so many powerful hitters. But yesterday's match, a couple of those forehands had me thinking "man that was a punishing shot."

Dmitry can flatten it out and still have it in somehow, which is so damn hard to do consistently. It was a joy to listen to the sound his stick makes on contact, he really hits a clean ball off of both sides. Fed hits more spin, his FH is a lot safer, and way more wristy. Gonzo hits a monster forehand, but Tursunov can match him shot for shot no problem. Just like Henman said, a lot of times Tursunov makes you feel like a spectator when you play him. The shots just fly by. If only he were more agressive and consistent with his second serve, he'd be in top 10 easy. Oh yeah, his net game kind of sucks.
