I'm pretty sure Mats said best looking not actually the best.

well, it is fantastic, there's no doubt about. regarding beauty i still think reeshard is unbeatable but in terms of pace combined with relentless power stan is certainly up there with the best, like haas, for example.

"he has certainly the greatest one handed backhand I've ever seen" to be exact.

Although pound-for-pound Henin's is better imo...

I support Andy Murray!

I must have heard wrong then,well that's a controversial statement but then again it is very like Wilander to say something like that.Personally the best one hander I've seen was Guga's.

It can't hold a candle to Kuerten's.

Mats with a seriously over-exaggerated sentiment in the middle of a match?

Colour me shocked.

Re: Mats Wilander: Stanislas Wawrinka - "The Greatest One Handed Backhand I've Ever S

I was linked to Mats' blog after R1 was over. Apart from being averse to paragraphing, he noted that Roger's performance in R1 was the best he'd ever seen anyone play and if he played even 10% below it he'd still never lose a set again.

Ok, Fed was good (certainly better than he's been since) but come on, lay off the exaggerations

Will Federer regain the #1 spot and break Sampras's record for most weeks at the top?

Roger // Rafa // Raonic // Söderling // Goffin // Ivo // Wawrinka // Baker // Delpo

the best single handed backhand belongs to federer hands down. if you think it belongs to someone else than fed you are just as ridiculous as wilander.

i used to wonder if you knew three fifths of f*** all... now i know

fed's backhand is nearly wholly responsible for his inability to cement his GOATness, and even more at fault for allowing a tragedy like nadal to own him...

Virtua Tennis isn't a great way to base an argument mate... wake the f*** up...
