where is steffi? it was her best shot still her father forbid her to use it and she still became number 1 so that make undisputed queen
and second she turned a grandslam final around with a one handed back hand too, her opponent totally broke apart after only that makes the undisputed queen even more
o yeah and then she also had her buterfly slice, reason number 3 why she is the undisputed queen

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

Justine will win this poll because she is now considered to be the best one handed back-hander on the tour, no one remembers the quality of backhands 12 years ago.
except for irma maybe.

Sabatini! She had a blistering down the line topspin as well as beautiful, graceful slices for approach shots. My favourite to watch and everyone at the time admired it. Posters on this board probably haven't seen too much tennis it would seem from replies for Mauresmo and Henin to be leading.
Graf's backhand was lethal on grass barely bouncing while Navratilova's spinny approaches were a nightmare to dig up.

justine (for now) 'cause I don't know the girls from before my birth

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

I think Amelie has the best one-handed backhand, its a beautiful shot.

Sabatini had a gorgeous one-handed backhand. She could hit with a lot of topspin, slice, or flatten it out and aim for the lines.

Justine and Amelie's backhands are beautiful to watch but they haven't won enough with them yet. Give them a few more years and I will rank them more highly.
