I wanted to ask if somebody knows if Nicole has her own technique on her FH or if she has similar to somebody because I'm sure it's well-known Nicole copied Williams' backhand

next question is, is it Venus or Serena she copied? :)

I think Venus but I'm not that sure..

She definitely modelled her BH on Venus' one
Not with the same success though...

Nicole's problem with the BH is her hitting plan
She often takes the ball behind her instead of in front of her, especially on the DTL

The BH copied yes, but I think the FH is her own.

I reckon her forehand isn't modelled after anybody else. Her backhand is similar to Venus', though she doesn't seem to wrap the racquet around her body on the follow through quite like Venus does.

Yup, she took the ball too late on the BH quite often when trying to go DTL. It usually flew into the doubles alley.

Mario Ancic is just about the only other player I can remember who has such an early takeback and wide swing on the FH side.

but mario doesnt hit out on the fh as much :( he should/could be so much more aggressive with it.

nicoles backhand is definitely modelled on Venus', the difference being nicole has nowhere near the anticipation and preparation that V has

Very awful BH, she has a very weird preparation and an awful technique just like Venus :tape:

Early preperation, intricate footwork, open-stance. How does Venus have awful technique again?
I don't think Venus BH is the shot who help her in her matches.

Venus is the exemple that it can be accurate though.

Nicole's backhand is not awful but the way she hits it, she can't afford to have a bad timing.

sharapovas backhand WISHES it was as good as Venus'.

venus' has more power and has a better down the line and can hit it on the run unlike sharapova!
