I have to put Haas' backhand ahead of Hewitts and maybe Andre's when it's really on.

Well I dunno bout 5 but I think Rogi can hit a beautiful backhand and I like the way Sjeng hits them so effortlessly with such pace

Best of luck to Rogi: Australian Open, Dubai and TMS Indian Wells champ 2004

Sami My captain. LFC forever! But John Terry rules!

Best of luck to: Juan Carlos Ferrero, Mark Philippoussis, Carlos Moya and Nico Lapentti. Tommy Haas is finally back! I missed you!

i can't believe some of y'all didn't put Rogi. His is so similar to Guga's in the first place. Their game is very similar IMO. I didn't know that when I first started following Rogi. Coincidence.

With each passing season, I discover new reason
SAMPRAS --> Rios --> KUERTEN --> Kafelnikov -->
Federer --> Hewitt --> RODDICK --> GONZALEZ -->
NALBANDIAN --> Benneteau --> Davydenko --> Mathieu -->
TURSUNOV --> Mantilla --> KIEFER --> NADAL -->
Karlovic --> Odesnik --> Stepanek --> Monfils -->
??

My choice of the best five, sorry I don't always see the worst.
1 Safin
2 Agassi
3 Hewitt
4 Guga
5 Federer

Andy Roddick and Pete Sampras? Not particularly good, but you can't call that worst.

My top 5 Best Backhands: My top 5 Worst Backhands :

1- Guga 1- Roddick
2- Safin 2- El Aynaoui
3- Agassi 3- Sampras
4- Hewitt 4- Gonzalez

No no no, you got it all wrong IMO, after the US Open final you put Pete's backhand in the wrost. NO! & Albert? No way he has one of the worst. Federer's backhand is better than Lleyton's IMO.

My list (warning! its biased):
best backhands:
Guga
Haas
Safin
Federer
Agassi
worst backhands (no perticulare order):
Roddick
Blake
El-Aynaoui (but when its on its really on)
Arthurs (sorry man!)
Rusedski (couldnt think of anyone else )

Tennis, Ergo Sum.

Top 5 best

Safin
Guga
Roger
Agassi
Rochus (don't think it's the most effective but its beautiful to watch IMO )

Worst
Hard to say. El Anayoui (never knew how to spell his name, sorry) definetely prefers to hit forehands whenever possible and the same with Sampras

Schalken has one of the best backhands. I'm surprised no-one mentioned him.

Safin and Hewitt have the best double-handed ones.
