Exclamation Best Backhand?

Who has the best backhand. I pick Venus with Serena/Justine tied for second.

P.S. I know that this thread is so old.

Re: Best Backhand?

You only left off the woman with the best backhand of all time.

Chris Evert.

Women's tennis sucks.

I think this thread is about best backhand of any player on tour at the moment

Chris is the best backhand of all time il agree with you there completely!

Thank you for everything Mercedes, now please be nice to Socrates for me, perhaps fetch him a bird or two. We love you, always.

Re: Best Backhand?

Other, Hingis.

Venus used to have the best backhand but she never plays so why bother voting for her. Also her backhand isn't as potent as it used to be during her best days.

Between Hingis and Henin-Hardenne I'd go for Martina's. A better backhand dtl and has much more control over it that Justine does.

Jelena Dokic.Vera Zvonareva.Tatiana Golovin.Mary Pierce.Monica Seles.Martina Hingis.Anna Kournikova

Re: Best Backhand?

Why is this even a discussion? It's obvious that Justine has the best backhand in the game!

Re: Best Backhand?

Venus and Serena can do what a lot of two-handed players can't - slice, especially Venus. That's why their backhands are two of the best on the tour right now.

Serena Williams
21-Time Grand Slam Champion

6 AO ('03, '05, '07, '09, '10, '15) 3 FO ('02, '13, '15)
6 WBN ('02, '03, '09, '10, '12, '15) 6 USO ('99, '02, '08, '12, '13, '14)

Re: Best Backhand?

I voted Justine because she can use it for power and variety. She can use it to hit winners, to hit the low slices, and throw in a little drop shot... Not to mention she's a one - hander

Also good ones obviously Venus, Serena, Maria, and Hingis

Re: Best Backhand?

i seriously can't believe hingis' backhand is not in this poll. there is absolutely no question that her backhand is the best the game has seen since evert.

"It’s always been, ‘I wonder what she’s got, Sharapova?’, because I don’t see that she’s got something that special… Or do you know? Can you tell? What’s so exceptional about her?”
