Who has the best forehand??

Well, it`s hard to define what 'best forehand' means..the most powerful?the most accurate?the most reliable?..perhaps the combination of all those things.It`s up to you how you combine it..and say who has the best forehand out of these five players..

Simona Halep
Juan Martin Del Potro

Dementieva can hit the most outrageous CC winners off her FH so im picking her

Grassonkova.

I had to vote for Sveta. I`m a huge fan of Lena but the FH shots I`ve seen from Sveta were more incredible...not all shots. Lena has hit a lot of excellent forehands too. But those from Sveta were a bit better...

It's for sure not the best (yet!) but it's pure joy to watch Ana's FH on fire

Ana Ivanović.

But Lena can hit the ball very hard. I think when she has a good day she can reach Sveta!

Yes she can..actually when she has a good day she can reach Sveta`s high standard.But when Sveta has a good day she can produce the fastest forehand,very powerful...
..but it`s not all about power, maybe Lena`s FHs are more accurate..

btw. It`s all pretty tied so far

Why is Sharapova on the list, her FH is prone to breakdown look at the 4th round at Wimbledon this yr against Pennetta she was making a ton of errors off it, not in the same league technique wise on that FH as the others

Grassonkova.

i dont think because she's hit the fastest FH's that merits her to be on the list, if you went by that credentials you could put Venus and Serena on the list too, im sure overall they hit the fastest forehands, i think Pierce should be on the list over Sharapova

Grassonkova.

well id ahve to say after watching the elena maria match at this years quater final at wimby and at indian wells this year i think i know who has the better forehand! lol you deserved that! sorry! marias forehand is known to break down but when on form can be fabulous it depends what form and what confidence she has, although i would probably say svetlana has the best then kim then maria

ONE OF THE BEST FIGHTERS IN THE GAME
2004 WIMBLEDON CHAMPION
2006 US OPEN CHAMPION
2008 AUSTRALIAN OPEN CHAMPION
2012 & 2014 FRENCH OPEN CHAMPION

Congrats Maria you proved so many haters and fans that gave up on you wrong enjoy all the success that comes to you as you deserve it!

out of those, Svetlana definitely! her inside-inside and inside-outside' forehand is almost perfect

I'm cheering for Amélie and Shahar.
