The Top 10 biggest forehands in the game

Who would you say when they really open up have the biggest forehands in the game. This can include mindless ball bashers, its all about ultimate pace.

I'd go for..

1-Gulbis
2-Monfils
3-Verdasco
4-Gonzalez
5-Berdych
6-Federer
7-Djokovic
8-Tsonga
9-Cilic
10-Murray

Ive probably missed a few though.

Re: The Top 10 biggest forehands in the game

Based on pure pace?

Not in order, but I'd say:

Gonzalez
Blake
Andreev
Verdasco
Ferrero

etc..

Re: The Top 10 biggest forehands in the game

So your definition of a big forehand is just "pace".

Mods, please pulverize this superfluous forum contaminating thread, thanks.

Re: The Top 10 biggest forehands in the game

Murray's forehand is ugly.

Nearly as ugly as the man himself.
