Now that's what I'm talkin' 'bout. I agree w/u 2. When I saw that shot from Justine back then - I was like - "Whoooooooooooooooaaaa Nelly." That thing scared me as a tennis fan for life. Now don't get me wrong because Momo's is tight too - but Justine hides where she is gonna hit her-ins at times. Usually w/Mo - one can tell where it is gonna end up - unless she is approaching wit it - and sometimes even then - I can tell.
Justine just fires that thing up for the most part. At times and of course - one can tell where she is gonna hit it because she has limited time to excel on it - but usually - she can change the direction pretty directly.
Roger uses hissens pretty well - and Guga's is sweet - but IMO - Justine's is the tops. I am 5'6" - and she is 5'5" and 3/4's - but I would never be able to fire it off as strong as she does. I can barely hit a forehand on the court. LOL! It has been a couple of years since I've been on a tennis court - but even back then - my daughter's forehand was better than mines. And that is not saying much.
Anyway - I wonder how hard it would be for the ones that don't employ it to practice, learn and use it in their games? Can we not see Venus and Lindsay, et al, that don't use it - to start using it? Again - now that's what I'm talkin' 'bout! I love it!
Yet - the question still is - how are the two-handed backhands of the ones that use the one-handers? Why don't they use both is the question? LOL! Or do they sing the old song - "Ain't Got Time?"
