ALmagro is capable of generating pace from his backhand, he´d be a good pick, IMO. He can also whip it down the line really well, which is an advantage.

Which is significantly more than the relevance of your post.

Re: Whose one-hander would you pick against Nadal's forehand?

Guillermo Garcia-Lopez owned him in that Bangkok 10 match with that one hander.

Federer's indoors and on a quicker outdoor hardcourt. I've seen Kohlschreiber succeed BH to FH vs. Nadal for periods of time in their matches too.

Gaudio vs. Baby Rafa was very effective, and even in 2006, a past it Gaudio took a 7-5 set vs. 2006Rafa in Monte Carlo. Lost 1 and 1 the last two sets, but Rafa vs. Gaudio with both in prime form would be quite a spectacle.

Oh, and Almugro. He is one of the only Spaniards that really gives a battle to Nadal when they play. His one hander has given Nadal problems in many of their matches.

Re: Whose one-hander would you pick against Nadal's forehand?

It would be interesting to see what Gasquet could do if he stepped in and took the ball earlier. His technique is really good, but if you play 3 metres behind the baseline against Nadal, it´s a losing battle no matter how well you hit the ball.

Federer's variety + Gasquet's topspin + Kohlsreiber's power

Yeah, seems about right. May have a chance against Nadal.
Sadly, this BH doesnt exist.

+Ljubicic's height+ Gaudio's consistency. Now we are talking...

No way, Haas backhand is so avarage against Nadal. Watch Kohlshreiber or Ljubicic for effective backhands against Nadal, Haas is too oldschool with not enought power and uses his slice too much while defending.

Re: Whose one-hander would you pick against Nadal's forehand?

i may have to disagree. if the clay warrior is really on with his forehand, there is no single hander that is of much use against that very stroke.

of course you will get a few shots in here and there that may be finishing shots or at least be able to extract an error but over the course of a whole match---and especially a best of 5 sets match, that single hander will be pretty much useless.

If Almagro knew how to play a tiebreak vs the top 10/ had taken BP at 4-4 he would've beat him the year Nadal played his best

correct answer is guga

God is Love. To know Love is to know God. So ask yourself if you hold any hate for another in your heart how can you have room for Love, room for God

Gasquet. Too bad the rest of his hame isn't good enough to beat Nadull.

Re: Whose one-hander would you pick against Nadal's forehand?

nobody.....closest would be guga.....nadal is the greatest destroyer of single handers in the history of tennis.....it's so ignorant of people to try portray his unique forehand as a bad match up for single handers on the tour.....how many lefties can hit their forehands like nadal? no one......nadal's tennis is unique.....
