Re: Forehand Slice

It's actually a pretty good shot to use if you can do a forehand slice as hard as you can and land where you want it. Nobody will ever use it in professional tennis because the unforce error ratio is simply too high. Hit anything softer is just a dead giveaway

The BIGGEST (borderline delusional) fan of players on General Message Board according to Forehander:
Grigor Dimitrov: FedererBulgaria
Borna Coric: Crowdmaker
Nick Krygios: Dan.
Tommy Haas: Leng Jai
Sebastien Grosjean: Myself
Novak Djokovic: Chiico (Leader of the No1e Cult)

I don´t see why slice forehand would be any more vulnerable to unforced errors than slice backhand. Not many pros seem to use it nowadays, but I´m not quite sure why. Itś a good shot to have in your arsenal, if you use it correctly. Connors, for example, used to hit his forehand with some underspin when he had to hit it low, or from a difficult position.

I'm surprised it isn't used as often too, particularly on low bounces surfaces, it's very hard to control those fast fh slices, you need to be very loose on the wrist..
