Which shot is worse?: Ivanovic's BH or Wozniacki's FH?

Both are literally non-existent and it's embarrassing for a former world #1 and current #1. So which shot is worse?


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

Best poll in ages.

I vote VIP's BH because of all those times it bounces before the net.

depends, ivanovic's backhand is as crude as they come but it does strike winners out of nowhere, however it barely makes the net sometimes. caro's forehand is more consistent, but she cant crack an egg with it and it lands woefully short a lot of the time.

Caro's FH. Ana at least can blast some winners from that wing.

I would give an edge to Wozniacki FH (as the worse one). On a level of consistency it is much better than Ana's BH, but somehow I can accept BH as a worse shot, while FH should be the base of player's game. I've seen matches were Ana's BH was very good (there was a match this year, don't remember which one though), and she can hit some unexpected winners from that side, while Woz's forehand is just plain mediocre and she can never count on it.

Please. There's no contest.

Caro's FH is abysmal. Ana can produce much more off the BH than Caro can on her FH. Ana has the slice, tops spin, and POWER off her BH when needed. Her BH isn't as much of a liability, because of the rest of her game. Caro, on the other hand...

Any video that helps reminding me how bad her BH is/was?

Caro's FH is actually stable.

Yes, and that's all it is. Stable.

She can't (or won't) do shit with it.
