which is better, myskina's forehand or her backhand?

i'm currently watching her a replay of her match against pistolesi and i tell you what, her cross court forehand is extremely lethal. it may not have the best placement but it has a massive amount of pace on it. i have never seen her hit her forehand so hard and yet she has done it many times in this match, but she seems to only put that big pace on her cc forehand and not on her dtl forehand. her backhand, although it doesn't have anywhere near the amount of pace she can put on her forehand, can be hit with great angles and accuracy.

Go the aussies! stosur!!!
and good luck russians: dementieva, safina, kirilenko, sharapova, kuznetsova, bovina, zvonareva, dushevina.

also good luck to: azarenka, lucic, sprem, vakulenko, vaidisova, safarova, ivanovic, groenefeld, mirza, krajicek, kvitkova, larcher de brito, lisicki.

Backhand hands down!
She has one of the best two handers in the game IMO!

Her backhand is much better IMHO.

Her backhand is incredibly flat and deep, with good angles and accuracy. It is her signature shot, the shot that puts others on the defensive.

Like most players, her forehand is her "what if" shot. If it's "on", it's incredible, if it's "off", it makes all the errors.

But definitely, the strategy against Myskina is certainly NOT to attack her backhand.

I have only seen her play once...that was at Wimbledon against Capriati and she pretty much didn't put up much of a fight. But Cappy said she expected a fight so I guess that just wasn't her day.

So her game was pretty lackluster for me that day, but I plan on seeing her play at Advanta and the YEC.

She played horrible tennis against Jen that day! Go see her like you said, and you'll see! One other weapon she has is speed! She is so underated in the speed category!

Only in a few states, I think New Jersey and Cnct. people mentioned. It's being broadcasted by CN8 tho, which has a live online broadcast so you can still watch.

Myskina's BH. As stated her forehand when on is great, but I find it more of a sloppy shot to be honest, like a slap at the ball. When I saw her matches from the USO, her forehand looked very weak and were not deep at all.

Her BH is great, she can place it anywhere on the court, and it is extremely flat. I think her BH and speed are her greatest assets!
