Who has the best one handed backhand?

Amelie Mauresmo or Justine Henin Hardenne.
In my opinion its extremely difficult to say who has a better one, cause both are perfect. Personally I like Momo's a bit more than Justine's.

Elena Dementieva
Maria Kirilenko

Patty Schnyder, Anastasia Myskina
Marat Safin, Lleyton Hewitt, David Nalbandian

definitely Justine's...

This can't last. This misery can't last. I must remember that and try to control myself. Nothing lasts really. Neither happiness nor despair. Not even life lasts very long. There'll come a time in the future when I shan't mind about this anymore, when I can look back and say quite peacefully and cheerfully how silly I was. No, no, I don't want that time to come ever. I want to remember every minute, always, always to the end of my days.

It pains me to say so but H.H. backhand is better. She hits through the ball so much more then MoMo does. MoMo's slice is deadlier tho I'd like to see her flatten it out a little more like H.H. Either way they are both very pretty shots and I'm glad some players are keeping the one hander alive.

Both have truly gorgeous backhands, but only Justine's has ever made me gasp -- the deadly speed and power of it are absolutely shocking at times.

Can't wait to see it again.

Mauresmo I think, Justine has a good one too but Justine has such a powerful forehand too, Mauresmo's forehand really hurds her on hard court so she really has to use that backahnd alot and i think its a huge weapon of hers.

Definitely Justine, see 2004 Olympic Final, when they exchanged backhand to backhand, Mauresmo's backhand is weak compared to Justine's, her backhand can not handle Justine's backhand, losing most of the point.

Justine's, just look at the stats... Justine won 4 GS titles and Olympic gold, partly because her backhand is more deadlier. Mauresmo's spin backhands can be amazing but Justine is able to generate far more power in her shots and that's why she is a better player in my opinion.
