Best shot combination (FH + BH) in the top 4

I was discussing with a friend about this topic.
Forget about volleys, serve, drops, and all that kinda shots.
Also forget about the mental game, which is so important for these four players.
Just the Forehand and the Backhand. The normal combo for a long rally.

Imagina the perfect winner stroke in each player... Who will be the better one to win the game?
(I think I'm explaining myself well... The objetive isn't to analyse which is the most beautiful shot, I think Fed's Backhand is pretty beautiful, but not that spectacular for the game. The objetive here, is to analyse the best shot-combo to get more results in tennis).

Well, let's see...



Nadal:

Forehand

Backhand

Djokovic:

Forehand:
[Youtube]PbsQ8gZLWyc[/youtube]
Backhand:
[Youtube]u9BSsUegJJs[/youtube]
(Not the best quality in this one... But great video).


Federer

Forehand:
[Youtube]yo_zuz7bcLQ[/youtube]
Backhand:
[Youtube]oX7CcDIkMhE[/youtube]



Murray:

Forehand:
[Youtube]ibeNvlwrHnY[/youtube]
Backhand:
[Youtube]YsMLBAKn9MU[/youtube]




NOTE: The videos are the best according to my opinion.
I tried to put the better videos to make a correct analysis.

Re: Best shot combination (FH + BH) in the top 4

It used to be Nadal but his backhand has been suspect this year. Getting back to form though.

I'd say Djokovic with Nadal a close second.

Re: Best shot combination (FH + BH) in the top 4

Nole : Great FH + Great BH.
Rafa : Great FH + decent BH most of the time.
Roger : Great FH + Shit BH most of the time.
Murray : Great BH + Decent FH.

It's obvious.

Nole's FH has improved big time this year. It's lethal now. Nole can do whatever he wants with that shot.

This.

You know. I'm not the best fan of Nole (I wouldn't say I don't like it. But mostly of the time I don't), but this is true.

Look at deez piz o shit.

Re: Best shot combination (FH + BH) in the top 4

Very interresting topic to compare only FH and BH of best players, but right now i think it is not the right time to compare, because most people will vote for Djokovic how we can see, because he has best half year of his career behind him now, Rafa on other side has worse BH than he used to and Roger became shankerer - in times when he is not playing very good like RG, so right now i will too say Djokovic has the best combo, but overall we can say that at their peak - anyone of this players is so fu.king good is amazing i mean in 2008 when Rafa was at his best and making 0 UE, his forehand and beckand were those shots which dominates rallies, Roger in his era of domination had best FH on the tour and his BH was far better than is today and Murray when played some great tennis on HC Masters or US open 2008 was also far better than today in shot selection. So now i will say Djokovic, but let this thread open and we can discuss that in one year from now and we will see how people´s choose will be different maybe.

Re: Best shot combination (FH + BH) in the top 4

At their best:

Fed - FH: 120000/10 , BH: 7/10

Nadal - FH: 9/10 , BH: 8/10

Nole - FH: 9.5/10 , BH: 9.5/10

Murray - FH: 7.5/10 , BH: 9.5/10

So Novak takes it I have to say.
