But I'd vote for Serena's. Her backhand was garbage in Australia, but she was hitting it fairly well during the US hardcourt season last summer, so I'm hoping that it's just been poor so far in 2012 because of her ankle/footwork.

Maria's BH leaks too many errors nowadays. It's inexplicable how that shot has lost its stability over the past 1.5 years. In most of her losses lately, her backhand is actually more to blame than her serve.

Oh, the poll's asking about peak vs peak.

Sharona.

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

TF of course will deny it, but Maria at her peak has the best BH on tour.
