Anas Forehand: the most dominant weapon in Womens game

Ive heard it from several experts, saying it could dominate the way Federers forehand dominates the Mens Game.

she will never dominate with her forehand because her speed and footwork isnt good enough. federer's is!

Re: Anas Forehand: the most dominant weapon in Womens game

Her speed is increasing for every year. The problem with her before was that she used to rush her forehand. After the Jankovic i almost cried after I saw how she hit 5-6 forehands and still hit a winner. Now if you have followed Ana for the past couple of years you would know that she had to hit a winner pretty quickly with her forehand, or she would hit an ue.

She will never dminate with her speed, but with brute power.

No, you saw against venus at wimbly, venus was running down nearly every forehand, its not all about power you know. federer's forehand doesn't 'dominate' because of how hard it's hit. Tati's may not be harder but it's better

she'll be dominant when she strings together a series of slam titles.

True,but if we look just a shot without other elements she has the most powerful forehand on the tour and at the same time most heavy,something similar to Davenport. . .

but it dosent matter how hard you can hit a ball if you arent quick enough to get there! or have good enough foot work to be on balance and in the right position to use it! and against someone who moves alot better (venus say!) she ends up looking lost as venus can get her off balance too often!
