This one is easy for me: Venus backhand dtl requires most players to step aside and yell "Timber!" :lol:

also l like her swing volley and first serve out wide.

agreed when Vee looks down and out i wouldnt dare give her a BTL its not gonna miss and she is gonna belt a winner by you which she proved at Wimbledon against Raymond and Jankovic plus when She's at her best her swinging FH drives are unreal, LenaD's running CC forehand is absolutley lethal and hits outrageous winners against anyone with it

I like Serena's fh crosscourt winners.

I was glad when Venus started incorporating that shot more into her game.

myskina's got quite a swing volley like who one female commentator was complimented. i cant remember which one tho. Prolly a tournament last year or in 2004. She supposedly has a good backhand too. But i like her swing volley. :)

Serena: Running cross-court forehand. Absolutely deadly, especially with some of the angles she creates. Her first serve is obviously the "shot" too.

Venus: She has THE best backhound down the line that I've ever seen. It's a laser shot when it's on. God, anyone else remember the 2001 SF against Capriati? She lasered that up the line time and time again for winners.

Sharapova: Not one of my favs at all, but I thought I'd be respectful and make note of her short angle passing shots (i.e. the one against Serena at the Aus Open 05 SF that put Maria up 5-4 in the second.) She's able to just thread the needle and flick those crosscourt passing shots short and angled. Brilliant shot.

hingis, without question, has the best backhand in the game. whether she's smacking a flat blast up the line, hitting a deft short angle cross court, rolling a topspin shot deep into the corner, removing the left hand to hit a perfect drop shot, timing a lob that leaves her opponent looking foolish, or [best of all] re-directing an inside-out backhand return, she does it all with unparalleled placement and consistency.

:bowdown:

Daniela's backhand down the line is probably the deadliest shot she has,her return game is also deadly.

I have to admit i have seen Maria hit some wow passes, i remember the Vee wimbledon 05 semi and she was down set point Vee hit a great volley and she came up with a sizzler of a pass, but Vee came up with alot of great passes in that match too ;) particualerly to set up bp for 4-2 and in the 2nd last game hit an amzing BH DTL pass that was superb and forced Sharapova into error :worship:

patty has an amazing forehand, serve, and drop shot. oh, and if fitness was a shot, she would pwn with that too.

peng has a great backhand. especially down the line when she's out of the court. :hearts:

So true ;) Forehand DTL, CC, Backhand DTL, CC, all amazingly deadly! :hearts:

Venus - Backhand DTL, but her first serve down the T in the Deuce court also generates a lot of aces when its on

did you see the forehand serve return winner Patty hit today in the 2nd set?

Clisters tried to slice the serve to Patty's backhand, but Patty guessed early, took 2 steps to her right, and just CLOBBERED her forehand straight down the line into the near corner. It was a heavenly angle.

Hingis' backhand down the line is definately her biggest, signature shot, but I think her forehand approach down the line is another big asset to her game. Did I mention her dropshots?

I suppose Nastya's best shot would be her backhand. It certainly isn't her first or second serve or her overheads which have a tendency to go into the net.

Derek.
Jul 31st, 2006, 05:15 AM
Daniela is really good when she sets up and hits those down the line drives, especially off the backhand. Her forehand down the line can turn heads as well. ;)

Caroline, Nastya, and Nastya P. all have really good backhands.

For Nicole it's her inside out forehand. :inlove:

Dominic
Jul 31st, 2006, 05:16 AM
Dokic's forehand down the line and backhand crosscourt are probably her best shots. Dementieva'forehand inside out, Maria's forehand and backhand crosscourt.

Oh boy, I have a large list:

Venus: Backhand dtl or slice serve out wide in the deuce court
Serena: Forehand and backhand court-court and her first serve
Nicole: First serve and forehand
Daniela: Backhand dtl
Tatiana: Forehand dtl/inside-out
Myskina: backhand dtl
Lindsay: Backhand cross-court and first serve (esp. out-wide on the deuce and up the t on the ad)
Maria K.: backhand and finese shots
Bepa Z: backhand either direction
Martina: SO many to choose from; backhand dtl, drop shot, lob, forehand dtl approach, traditional volleys
Maria S.: first serve and backhand cross-court

Mary Pierce: Forhand DTL. Killer. GREAT Second Serve, great kick to it!

Jenny Capriati: Best forhand, EVER. Running crosscourt forhand. (she was playing pierce in canada and pierce hit a massive backhand only to have capriati slam it past her on a full run crosscourt, to pierces utter disbelief!)

Venus: First serve. simply huge.

Nicole V.: Forhand. Pinpoint acuracy!

Serena's return of serve: some are just, wow:eek:
Dani's down the line backhand:such a smooth shot, yet so deadly. really catches her opponents by surprise
Venus's down the line backhand: same as above except slightly less smoother, but more powerful
Ana Ivanovic's forehand: beautiful to watch and she can place it anywhere on the court so well
Martina's backhand (in general): Not the most powerful, but so well placed

Hingis - Her backhand is her most deadly shot, be it a flat shot down the line, an angled cross court shot, a topspin lop or a sneaky drop-shot...

Dementieva - Her forehand. Hits the most outrageous winners on that wing from nearly anyway in the court, esp the cross court forehand!

Myskina - at her best (esp in 2004), she could suddenly change the pace of a rally by smacking a really flat backhand for a winner or to create an easy put away

Graf - Inside out forehand was deadly....

Mary Pierce's forehand, either DTL or crosscourt, is so deadly. If you blink, sometimes you don't even see it.
