Love it.

Man, she spanked the ball that first point! I agree though, Mary's forehand is the most unstoppable one I've ever seen when it's on.

Hantuchova having a big forehand? :spit:

Mary Pierce's forehand is not even right. She can overpower Serena and Venus when it's on. Sadly, it isn't on.
Serena's forehand I would have said, but she is spinning it too much.

Right now, I guess it's Ivanovic. However, I don't like her. :tape:

5.Venus, when working.

I sort of agree though I haven't seen much of Davenport since her return just two matches where they featured her handsome son. Adorable little kid and so well behaved it seems.

Now back to the main post, yeah Davenport has the most consistent forehand at least right up to her retirement for the past three years, before that Serena's forehand was much more of a weapon than anyone else's forehand especially when she needed it most.

Since the Aussie '05 final we haven't seen much of that form on the forehand, until this years aussie open final coincidentially. So yeah you are pretty spot on, her forehand return is otherworldly when she's playing with that form. (this is mostly due to her lack of play, form and fitness overall for sure).

Ivanovic and Vaidisova hit the forehand the biggest but in bouts at a time, they still are too inconsistent and erratic so far. Unlike Mary Pierce per se or Serena's forehand it seems when you go right at their forehand Ivanovic's and Vaidisova's forehand do break down.

At one point Dementieva had the biggest forehand but it's not the biggest at the moment but it will remain top 4 for sure especially off the return. She can be as menacing as Serena's which is no small compliment.

The thing with Venus' forehand is that it's actually funny, the harder you push her forehand the better she hits it.

I disagree when Hantuchova's forehand is consistent, it makes so much damage :o

Haha Pierce takes the trophy here!

Serenas 2nd - Davenport and Venus are both good too IMO

And Ivanovic too!

Lindsay has the most consistently powerful forehand. Between the biggest hitters of the ball (Serena, Venus, Pierce, Elena), Lindsay hits has the most powerful-consistent forehand.

But I think Pierce or Serena can hit it the hardest when they get it in.

Mirza has a great forehand as noted above but she still lacks the consistency and maybe variety.

I think right now JH has the best forehand in women's tennis.

wow no JuJu mentions?
Interesting... Im not sure how u define "big".
Big as in every now and then you load up and pop one, or can u consistently pressure opponents that they dont DARE hit to that side?

I think Ivanovic's forehand is a bit overrated, it's great, but it's only seen as a 'weapon' because it's clearly the best shot in her repertoire. If you put Venus' forehand (which is not considered a weapon) and Ivanovic's forehand head to head, Venus will win, but the forehand of Venus' isnt that noted because she has other shots that are better. ie serve, volleys, backhand.

Biggest is definitely Mary. That shot is pretty much unstoppable when it's on. In today's game, Ana or Venus. Justine's is quite big and probably the most effective.

Golovin?:tape:

Golovin has a huge forehand, it's her biggest weapon. She has a nice backhand as well, but the opponents are always playing on it, to avoid the forehand.

Jennifer Capriati: a great example of this was some amazing forehand winners (one cross court, one down-the-line) she smacked off the great Davenport serve in the semis of OZ 2001...
