Guga at his prime had a better backhand for sure But on the women's side, Venus is up there with her

Of course not Take Federer, Nalbandian, Agassi, Hewitt....Justine wouldnt stand a chance The men are just too powerful for her, you dont notice it on TV but there really is quite a large difference.

Gasquet and Ollie Rochus have great one handers also.

Federer's BH is his weakness (if thats what you can call it- it is compared to his FH)

That little girl generates so much power through almost perfect technique and that is why it is such a great shot. On the men's side Gasquet in form has some of the same. Hard to compare against the best two hander, though. But Safin's backhand is probably the best two handed backhand.

Personally I prefer gasquet's backhand.For two-handers i'd have to go with safin.I don't think justine's is the best on both tours.The women's tour yes,but not the mens.

Maybe the best SINGLE HANDED backhand on thw WTA. That what most commentators say. Venus and Lindsay to name a few have great backhands...

Justine has the best backhand on women's tour, and she can't compete with the men, but just looking at the shots she can produce and whatnot, I believe she does have one of the best backhands in tennis.

Safin has a better backhand than Agassi and Hewitt, please! But Nalbandian is up there with him on the best two-handers. Roger doesn't generate as much power in his BH, but the amount of variety it brings to his game is essential to his success. It's one of the best on ATP and an underrated weapon (even if counted as his weakness - well, sometimes it's so off it truly is).
