I think Lindsay and Jen have better forehands. So would Serena if she would just stop pushing the ball.

Jen is my fave along with Elena. And I like Lindsay too.

In terms of technique, consistency, power and aggression, Elena's is much better in all those departments in comparison to Serena, Lindsay and Jen. Serena's technique is shaky, Jen isn't aggressive enough with her FH and Lindsays can break down pretty often too.

Elena's FH is the money shot. The winners, the returns and the groundies she can hit on that wing are amazing. Especially towards the end of the second set today.

i think it is probably the best on the tour at the moment.

i think jennifer's forehand may be equally strong, but Dementieva utilizes it more effectively, especially when she whips it while on the run

i love it but no it´s not the best on tour cap Serena Vee(when she puts the ball in and not out some people might say that she deosn have a good forehand but go look @ some matchs of 2000/2001/2002 and you´ll see what i´m talking about especially 1 match agains Kim in Antwerp 2002 if i´m not wrong),Lidsay this have better IMO forehands then Dementieva. but Dementieva´s is a trademark and it´s 1 of the bests on tour.

may not be THE best, but it's right up there with the VERY best.

I'm not saying that because I love it that it's best. Don't roll your eyes at me you self-righteous asshole.

I just thought it would be appropriate to bring this thread back. I would like to make an ammendment to my previous post.

Dementieva's forehand is by far stronger than Jennifers! (just an opinion guys!) It's freakin amazing! Like Venus, Elena on the run with that forehand is just asking for a crazy passing shot!!

It's a beauty and, on another note about her game, I love how she is coming to the net!
