Who puts more topspin or their backhand: Nadal or Djokovic?

I've heard everything on Nadals backhand from "he hits it quite flat" to "he has the most topspin on it out of any backhand in the history of the game."

Well, which is it, and how does it compare to Djokovic's?

nole's BH reminds me alot like vika's BH but with more power, Rafa actually his BH is flat and more pace than his FH for some reason, i thought that it was the other way around but maybe its the same

It was deadly at times but it has never been consistently deadly outside of passing shots. It was never better than his forehand.

Re: Who puts more topspin or their backhand: Nadal or Djokovic?

It is all situational, chaps.

Of course from the baseline with the intent of a rally shot, both guys will hit heavy topspin.

When going for a winner and moving up the court, they will flatten it out.

nadull either moonballs (i mean that literally because he uses little or no topspin whatsoever there) with the backhand or flattens it out

nadal can only add heavy topspin with his forehand

Nadal hits a normal 2H backhand with as much topspin as everyone else on tour. His FH has the most topspin because he hits it an odd way.

Djokovic uses more topspin, that's why he able to go down the line so often without over hitting.
