Jelena Jankovic has the best backhand in the world

It is not only my opinion,it is opinion of the many top coaches and i truly think that she should be ranked more bec she has excellent tehnique and good atletic abilities so it is time to use them.(she is the only one who needed just little bit of luck to beat not one but twice Kim K)

not exactly - but one could argue (i myself think it too at times) that she has the best two-handed backhand down the line while on the run.
that's bieng very darn specific when she's best - but she's way up there with Dementieva, ALG, Myskina and vintage dokic.
I've also said it a very long time ago that she has an exra advantage in a shot that we haven't seen alot of players using much these last few years.
another great youngster to do well on this shot is Pirinkova, while the best crosscourt two handed shot on the run i've seen on constat basis suprisingly belongs to dushevina.

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.

Vera Dushevina??? She must be one of the worst players in the Top 100. How she reached a Tier 2 final with her serve and FH is beyond me. And her BH isn't that good either.

Jankovic has a good BH but not the best. Marjan = ivanovic?

she beat Serena,Dementieva,Petrova,Schnyder,Zvonareva,Venus

and played a tight three setter with Clijsters,Davenport,Sharapova,Henin-Hardenne,Myskina

she just needs to get her head together-she's just 21 and there is still plenty of time for her, she seems getting better-she has a good chance in next few year

and i agree that backhand down the line is WILD HOT!

NO


Jankovic suffers from severe Chinese syndrome! Only God can help her!

It is a good shot but I would say Venus has the best double handed backhand. The way she creates angles with it is amazing. Its so powerful and amazing when she is on the run.

Marjan OTOH dislikes Ana to put it very mildly, so much that he has written some outrageosly ridiculous claims about her. IMO he should simply be ignored, even though he here makes some sense in so much that Jelena's backhand indeed is very good...
