Kuznetsova. More spin, more margin for error, more pace, more everything.

Good Luck Radwanska Sisters!

Kuznetsova

Lena's forehand is not as good as it used to be

Lena has (much) more control over the shot but Sveta's forehand is (much) bigger.

Re: Better forehand: Dementieva or Kuznetsova?

I find myself in awe of Lena's forehand. It's like she can load up and unwind in the blink of an eye. I think she has better control of her forehand than Kuznetsova. Sveta has gobs of topspin, but even that doesn't stop her from piling up UEs. But when they're on, their forehands can put up some highlight clips. Seeing that she's losing this poll and because I'm a helpless 'tard even when she's crazy, I'll vote for Lena.

Even if I tried to justify my choice, no one would believe me anyway. Plus Lena had better bangs.

Re: Better forehand: Dementieva or Kuznetsova?

Sveat but it varies.... but I think Sveta's forehand gets her more than Dementieva's does her

Margin for error? No.

Anyway, it is precisely as AnnaK_4ever pointed out. Dementieva has the more solid, consistently delivering FH while Kuzzy () owns the far more lethal of the two. Which one you think is "better" depends on your definition of the word and also, probably, which player you like better. For me it's Dementieva.

I don't think there's anything that Dementieva does better than Kuznetsova.

Re: Better forehand: Dementieva or Kuznetsova?

Dementieva's is more solid Sveta's is more explosive.. Hard to compare but the FH (and movement) has really compensated for the lack of serve for the most part of Lena's career. So I would say Lena..

Martina Hingis Ana Ivanovic Myskina Safarova

Yeah she does. Dementieva's is flat flat flat. No margin whatsoever. Kuznetsova on the other hand won the French Open with her forehand alone.
