Biggest Forehand

Who has the best forehand?
When it's on, it's Serena. But for now, I think it's Ivanovic.

Re: Biggest Forehand

You left out the second best forehand of all time, Pierce. GRaf has the best forehand tennis has seen period, closely followed by the power packed forehand of Mary Pierce. There's some good ones up there as well, but nobody comes close to Ma'am. Golovin should also be up there, over Vaidosova for sure, and we all know how AWESOME Kim's forehand is when it matters the most .

Re: Biggest Forehand

sania second hantuchova

kim has the biggest strongest and effective forehand right now almost every winner from her is for her forehand, is a heavy shot, quick, accurate and always dangerous, second kuznetsova very strong but erratic, third vaidisova with so much pace is just to quick to return. serenas forehand isnt such a weapon as in 2002


venus should be replace by pierce

LEGEND. Nicole. Caro. Aga. Sloane. Taylor.

Re: Biggest Forehand

I watched Kim practise in Toronto the year she won it and the US Open and I have NEVER seen anyone hit a forehand like her - it was out of this world!

Re: Biggest Forehand

1. elena dementieva (even kim said lenaD hits the hardest when she's on), serena williams (it's just amazing and her ROS with it is just incredible)
2. mary pierce (honestly when she and elena played in the uso sf '05, after the first set, mary's forehand made elena's look almost ordinary --- it was crazy)

i wound up voting for elena cuz she's my favorite so...

ROCK ON:
elena dementieva, serena williams, caroline wozniacki, ana ivanovic
david nalbandian, rafael nadal, andy murray, gael monfils, jo-wilfried tsonga

Uhhh... don't get why you think Golovin's forehand should be on her over Nicole's.

It's not as good nor as a big.

Re: Biggest Forehand

1. Serena. No question. Most of those girls in that list take time and preparation to set up and hit their monster forehand. With Serena, she goes at those forehands even on first serve returns!

2. Clijsters. I know it was only for fun, but that last forehand she hit against Serena at the 2005 USO Arthur Ashe Kid's day was lethal. That must've felt good hitting that.

3. Karolina Sprem. Again, mindless ball bashing tennis, but produces insane power on the forehand.

Kim's forehand good. But, it's one of the uglist shots I have ever seen.

Forehands tend to be way more erratic than backhands, so it's really difficult to pick from that list. I think Nicole's forehand could become one of the best shots in tennis over the next couple of years - it's already a pretty big weapon... same for Ana's. ATM they're both too inconsistent. For the last 12 months or so, I think Justine's forehand has been up there with the very best on tour.

Women's tennis sucks.

Go Rafa.

Re: Biggest Forehand

Venus?

I like Ivanovic's forehand most out of all of these.

Golovin's forehand isn't BAM power ala Mary Pierce, but it's incredibly deceptive, much like Hingis' backhand which is one of the best ever. Just now she's really started to pick it up on her forehand side and really made it into a bigger weapon. You already saw it in the semis vs Sharapova at Miami earlier this year, and in any of her matches at Stuttgart where she almost wound up winning the title (I watched her semis vs Schnyder and her forehand was smoking hot).

I haven't watched enough Vaidisova matches to really grasp her game, though. I've heard people say her backhand is better , but maybe they're wrong .

Re: Biggest Forehand

Biggest Forehand & Best Forehand are 2 different things

Biggest Forehand goes to Sania

Best Forehand goes to Kim Or Maria

Kinda agree about Kim but not Maria It's really erratic at times...Very actually.. Her backhand is way more solid I think.
