Who else has the great backhand on tour?

I've watched some clips on you tube and would love to see more, especially backhand. so it'd be great to know whose backhand is your favorite to watch tactically and beautifully. (I guess most of you guys would defenitly say Justine's that's my favorite too but if there's another player that'd be great)

Thank you in avance for replying!

Re: Who else has the great backhand on tour?

Some of the angles that Serena gets on her cross-court backhand are a joy to watch.

Aravane Rezai has a massive backhand when it's on.

Hlavackova, Strycova, Venus, Serena, Schiavone, Hradecka, Safarova, Cetkovska, Pliskova, Kasatkina, Putintseva, Ostapenko, Gasparyan

Sam Smith on Hlavackova

Yeah, but TOB's actually hitting a two-handed forehand.

You could watch Dementieva's backhand, then do everything exactly the opposite of what she does.

Re: Who else has the great backhand on tour?

Most top 25 WTA players have solid backhands. Even the "frowned" upon backhands of Ivanovic and Dementieva aren't that bad and have their good moments. It's not like they go to great lengths to run around their backhands the way Federer/Roddick/Ferrer do.

Re: Who else has the great backhand on tour?

Venus, JJ, Maria and Serena come to mind. So many WTA players have great backhands...

Of course we all know who has the best forehand.
