Better Backhand Technique, Dimitrov or Suarez Navarro?

Leave out the sexist comments and discuss this objectively please.



Suarez Navarro has a great one-hander. I believe her BH technique is better than Dimitrov's since she has a much better drive BH. Her BH take back looks like Gasquet's. Doesn't struggle to generate pace, better top spin, can create better angles with it, better control and much better average depth compared to Dimitrov's drive BH. It's a winning shot for her unlike's Dimitrov's who gets attacked a lot on that wing because his technique doesn't allow him to generate good/great rally ball with good average depth. He tends to hit it short a lot. Looks weak most of the times. Dimitrov has a much better slice tho but CSN's slice isn't really bad. Not to mention the drive BH is more important and much more effective. Objectively speaking, imo Suarez Navarro has the better BH technique.

Both are overrated.
For example Margarita Gasparyan is better than both. Just won Baku. 20 years old WTA player with nice OHBH.

That's what I do. I drink, and I know things.

Both are overrated and non-factors in their respective tours.

Technique wise, CSN's has far better angles, but that's about it.

Main favorites:

ATP: Roger Federer Stan Wawrinka
WTA: Legend Martina Hingis Garbine Muguruza Petra Kvitova

Dimitrovs SHB is not bad but considering CSN's petite frame, her SHB is just amazing - so I agree, pound for pound, CSN backhand > Dimitrov

Re: Better Backhand Technique, Dimitrov or Suarez Navarro?

technique is overrated...there are 12yo players with great technique, but then again they don't have to play against several 120kph shots coming their way, or 5000rpm from a lefty...

At the time of the question Dimitrov had a serious flaw in his BH, which to me it seems he's fixed and now, even technique wise, even disconsidering all other aspects of a BH, like slice, volleys, touch, etc. i believe they're at least on par.

Carla tends to not complete her swing often times, especially at faster balls, which normally is an invitation...but not as much in the WTA.

In the WTA, where he would have time to open at 360 degrees, like Carla in the above pic, he'd look flawless..
