Question Who has the BETTER Backhand?? Venus vs. Jankoivc

I saw on other threads that Veus was everyone's choice for this but I certainly think JJ's is much more of a weapon and is just utterly beautiful.. her backhand in general is awesome....

Down the line:
Cross Court:
Angle/topsipn:
Inside out:

Jelena Jankovic
- She used to know how to play tennis...
Jumping over career opportunities since 2006...
As her fans watch in awe at her ability to fuck that up...

Victoria Azarenka ~ Venus Williams
Maria Kirilenko ~ Petra Kvitova

JJ down the line is more imposing but Venus has a great backhand that she can hit anywhere on the court

Venus's backhand has come through for her time and time again in big matches. When it matters, she makes it. Great early racket preparation and she stays low, one of the best in her generation.

Venus' down the line has declined in the last few years, but her cross court is very good still. So I'll say down the line Janko, CC Venus.

Really, don't even look at me...

I agree both of them are amazing. I think Venus is deadly with that one the run, actually she is error prone when set up, but when on the run when connects it beautifully.
