Same. By no means is it one of the worst shots in the top 20, he can hit lots of winners off the backhand and even turn it into a weapon at times. Watch the fifth set of his Wimbledon loss to Schuettler and see how many screaming backhand winners he hit. He can also hit some huge returns with that backhand.
Worst groundstrokes in the top 20: Roddick's backhand, Gasquet's forehand, Gonzo's backhand, Stepanek's forehand and honorable mention to Ivo Karlovic's backhand at number 21. Wawrinka's forehand can suck at times as well.
