Who has the better forehand? Svetlana, Ana or Patty? (and maybe Davenport)

So, who had the best forehand out of these three? They are all notable for their fhs and it's probably the best shot in their repertoires.

Ana and Sveta's forehand all have a lot of speed and can be hit anywhere and from anywhere on the court. They are both explosive.

Patty has more of a top spin forehand but is equally as deadly.

My vote goes to Sveta.

Of those three, easily it is Ana, then Sveta close behind, then Patty.

Ana has a very consistent and good forehand but Sveta's when its on is can do more damage and some of the shots she can hit with it are.Im not being biased

Svetlana Kuznetsova

Re: Who has the better forehand? Svetlana, Ana or Patty? (and maybe Davenport)

I think it's Sveta. Ana's DTL is spectacular but Sveta beats her when it comes to FH CC and off FH. She hits her FH better when she's off-balance as well. Plus, her speed (which is severely underrated btw) allows her more time to set up. Of course, Sveta also brain-farts more with the forehand compared to Ana. Like she'd have run her opponent ragged around the court with her punishing forehands and she'd get a short ball and whack it into the net.

Patty's FH is pretty damn remarkable too, but she's always more content rallying than finishing off the point. I love how she puts so many different spins on the ball. I don't think any other player matches her in terms of weird FH spins.

Lindsay's FH is clean and flat. Bang Bang Bang. Corners Corners Corners. Very very explosive and deadly. But on the defensive she loops it back too short, unlike Sveta or Ana. They slice it back and manage to keep it low (sveta's deeper than ana's though).

Overall, I think Ana's FH is the one that has plenty of room to improve. It's already terrific, if she works on it further, undoubtedly she'd be one of the best.
