Nicole Vaidisova - Forehand and Backhand?

I wanted to ask if somebody knows if Nicole has her own technique on her FH or if she has similar to somebody because I'm sure it's well-known Nicole copied Williams' backhand

next question is, is it Venus or Serena she copied?

I think Venus but I'm not that sure..

Re: Nicole Vaidisova - Forehand and Backhand?

She definitely modelled her BH on Venus' one
Not with the same success though...

Re: Nicole Vaidisova - Forehand and Backhand?

Nicole's problem with the BH is her hitting plan
She often takes the ball behind her instead of in front of her, especially on the DTL

Yeah her backhand is def. modeled after Venus. She can get pretty lazy with it though.

The BH copied yes, but I think the FH is her own.


Paszek & Chakvetadze & Vaidisova & Sharapova & Pavlyuchenkova & Vekic.

Re: Nicole Vaidisova - Forehand and Backhand?

lately her teachnique looks like this granny from my tennis club jokes...

she does have pretty good technique overall, just needs to snap out of this which she will shes so young.

Good luck to the Aussie and Balkan girls!

Re: Nicole Vaidisova - Forehand and Backhand?

I reckon her forehand isn't modelled after anybody else. Her backhand is similar to Venus', though she doesn't seem to wrap the racquet around her body on the follow through quite like Venus does.

Yup, she took the ball too late on the BH quite often when trying to go DTL. It usually flew into the doubles alley.

Mario Ancic is just about the only other player I can remember who has such an early takeback and wide swing on the FH side.

nicoles backhand is definitely modelled on Venus', the difference being nicole has nowhere near the anticipation and preparation that V has

VenusSerena

Very awful BH, she has a very weird preparation and an awful technique just like Venus
