Re: Does Serena Williams have a better Backhand or Forehand ?
I've always felt her backhand is her best shot. Her forehand technique is SO ugly I hate even watching it. It will come up with flashy winners, but so does her backhand. Her best approaches to net are off the backhand, has more depth/width on it, and when she was younger that backhand was almost without a doubt the best shot in the game.
I know Venus is not part of this discussion, but I will briefly mention that I've preferred Venus' forehand to her backhand for quite some time. Now that side is very under appreciated, I feel.
Both, however, have issues on both sides depending on the day/their overall quality of play. It's a crapshoot as to which side is better on the day, but with Serena, I think her backhand is consistently better.
