One Handers: Justine vs. Roger

Mary talked a little bit ago about how she likes Roger's better because Justine is on her back foot alot when she hits hers.

What do you think!?

I personally think Justine's is a better shot, if you're watching Roger's SF now it's pretty obvious his backhand needs work. He never wins a point directly off his backhand except for drop shots, and Justine's backhand dictates much of the time.

I think Roger needs to work on his BH, he's only really good at passing shots.

ugh, justine is playing, girls and women, roger plays men, if justine had Rogers backhand, people would avoid that side at all cost, while justine's backand can be overpowered.

"And for the best of the teen-agers who followed her, and who occasionally referred to her as over the hill, Graf had a ready answer: against top-ranked Martina Hingis, Graf wound up 7-2. Graf's stirring 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 throttling of Hingis at the French Open final this June was perhaps the most emphatic parting shot the game has ever seen. "

Justine seems to deal with high balls better, almost like Guga. Roger uses more variety and his game is even more based around finishing points with his forehand. So I think they just use it differently

ugh, thanks for telling me, I didn't know that earlier...yer a smart one.

So I guess you disagree, so to avoid any other further confusion...how do you think Justine's backhand matches up against the rest of the women compared to how Roger's matches up to the rest of the men's?!

Result: Justine's backhand is more of a weapon

well there aren't many top women w/one hander, but I'd put her one hander as the tops of all the one handers on WTA

if there was a rally contest between justines backhand and rogers, Roger would trump hers

John McEnroe says "she has the best one-handed backhand in both men and women's tennis".

You can't get better than that!

I'm not even a Justine fan and I would say she has the best backhand I've ever seen in women's tennis. Federer doesn't have the best male backhand. His main weapon is his forehand I'd say. I can think of a few backhands I would rate higher than Roger's. The best would have to be Guga when he was at his peak. Choosing between Justine's and Guga's backhands would be tough.

I think Justine's is more of a weapon even though Mary is right.
She does hit off the back foot a lot, i thought i was the only one that noticed that, BUT she has soooo much of her hand BEHIND the racket that it becomes more offensive when she connects.

Roger on the other hand rolls his wrist and uses his to set up his forehand more.

Roger has more topspin, Justine drives hers more.
What trips me out is hwo she can be still drive the ball so deep from behind the baseline to the extent she overpowers and drives two handers back.
Serena is the only 2 hander she couldnt drive backwards too much.
Serena ran it down and seemed to rob Justine of preparation time.
Maria hasnt been able to do that yet for some reason, which speaks to a lack of great movement.

you're getting a little carried away. As I recall the last time Venus played Henin, it was Justine getting knocked off the line not Venus, so you were saying?

Hmmm....seen both players live and I´ve gotta say, that Justine´s performance is even cooler and more impressive than Roger´s. Wouldn´t have thought that, but imo Justine´s game is much more fun.

Regarding the backhand: Justine´s more effective and she hits more winners with it. Roger has a better forehand.
