i mean it was good for a slice, but she couldn't attack with it like justine can.
if you consider "effective" to mean "prolonging the rally to set me up for my better shot" then steffi's was, but that's not me. steffi's could stay low and stuff, but justine's is way more bombastic.
on grass it stayed low. anyone's slice stays low on grass, and how many people who use a slice miss it much? it was just above average for a slice, but it's not anywhere near the best backhands of all time and i think justine and momo have way better one handers.jaygee said:I think that back hand slice was a real weapon for steffi, especially at wimbledon. it was never pretty but worked well for.
I always think Steffi's backhand was very beautiful :hearts:Ioudaious said:I think a backhand slice doesn't have to be beautiful or smooth. As long as the player scores the winner or if it helps, so be it. Justine & Momo has a wonderful backhand...It rarely is...,'defective' I should say? It's helped both of them in the past and it'll continue to help them in the future....Steffi does not possess a beautiful backhand but it did score winners....
