forehand for sure. a lot of players have very similar two handers, whereas the forehand quality tends to vary.

Forehand. But why choose one when you can have both.

Re: Would you rather have the best backhand or best forehand in the women's game?

Stosur with her FH and absent backhand always looks hilarious , Roddick also was pretty weaponless from one side ......

In contemporary tennis player should be 2hander, of course from one side player can be more dangerous than from the other, but having lethal forehand and "average" BH is not enough

It's better than having no forehand and a quality backhand. Stosur has a slam, players like Zvonareva, Wozniacki, and Jankovic (who lack a big forehand) don't.

Definitely forehand. Naturally a more powerful and explosive shot. If your forehand is GOAT you can hit inside out forehands instead of backhands, which you can't really do that when your backhand is the best shot.

Re: Would you rather have the best backhand or best forehand in the women's game?

I've seen plenty of players run around their backhand and hit a forhand winner. I only recall seeing one run around her forehand and belt a backhand winner and that was Justine up a set and two breaks on clay and in the mood to show off.

Well, Seles did that a lot, but it's maybe an special case. MJMS does it too

I believe ASV did it a few times. JJ as well. But both are very good movers
