Backhand, because mine is very good and I love hitting backhands The forehand sucks though.

When you combine a really amazing forehand with absurdly good footwork/movement and court coverage you get a player that's quite special.

Just look at Steffi Graf, Pete Sampras, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal..

No worries, it's easy to pass those tests; just ask anyone in the WTA top 20.

A good point - how many times did Safin with his famous down-the-line BH beat Federer? Maybe twice out of twenty... and the same situation with Graf and Davenport.
