I would be Jenny for one-handed, and Monica for two-handed!

Someone forgot about Serena.

Always bet on black!

Davenport's forehand is only good when she's standing still. Same with Rubin and Dokic.

Best forehands in the game are Serena, Henin, Clisters, Cappy, Schnyder, Shaughnessy, Dementieva. Loit has a pretty good one as well for a lower-ranked player.

Worst forehand of the top players - Venus by a mile.

Mary Pierce has the killer forehand

azarenka - pavlyuchenkova - li - jankovic
garcia - bencic - paszek - rus - kanepi - kuznetsova - stephens
bouchard - karatantcheva - larcher de brito - voegele - lim - mladenovic

mary pierce - forever #1
vaidisova - kournikova - golovin - henin
the boys - federer - gasquet - del potro - haase - nishikori

Jennifer, Elena and Serena in the Top 10.

Lindsay's BH is better IMO and Chanda's is big too, just not as big as the above three.

Sure outdoes alot of the top ten in forehand battles though. Technique may not be perfect, but it's great as long as it goes over the net.
