sorry but you would literally have to smoke two bowls of weed to think that the Wozzy forehand is anywhere near as bad as that ugly beast of a two-hander from Sam. What an awful stroke.

Basically. It's by far the worst groundstroke in the top 10 to date.

The fact that you actually COULD make the comparison says a lot about caro's forehand!

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

The edge goes to Sam, but they're both disgusting, hideous, atrocious, abominable, shameful, terrible, gut churning shots, and have no business being in the top 10.

Wozniacki may have the second ugliest forehand in the top 100, but she commits few errors, which is a lot more than Stosur can say for her backhand.

Daniela Hantuchova.

Casey Dellacqua, Jelena Jankovic, Anna-Lena Groenefeld,
Jelena Dokic, Mirjana Lucic, Sara Tomic, Sloane Stephens
Melanie Oudin, Kaia Kanepi, Alison Riske

They both fugly as hell, but at least Wozniacki's forehand is somewhat effective.

...says a lot about the OP and, let's be fair, about the majority of TF in general.

Wozniacki's forehand may not always produce 20+ outright winners per match but it's an effective shot (not yesterday but even Fed has days when his FH is gone). Me guessing many of ballstriking machines would love to trade their brainless FHs to Wozniacki's safe and most of the time effective one.

Woz's FH alone >>>> Stosur FH + Stosur BH + Stosur as a whole.

Sam's BH kinda blows, but it still looks much better aesthetically than that tragic stroke of our current World Nr.1. You've got a feeling of anxiety and desperation whenever that hideous stroke is being hit, and you can almost feel how tennis balls are squirming in pain when being abused by that seal clubbing stroke.
