Re: 5 Forehands With Deadly Finishing Power and Consistency In the Clutch

Hilarious to see people argue that Nadal has the best forehand ever. It is a great shot no doubt but far from the best forehand ever. If he had the best forehand ever he would've won more than 2 hardcourt slams (or is it 3?).

I really think the Borg/Lendl forehands were analogous to the forehands of Nadal/Federer. Borg with great accuracy, placement and consistency while Lendl with the power and clutch. Certainly both, especially Borg's forehand, was ahead of their time. Sampras had a tremendous forehand, but I mean hard to really rate considering playing from the baseline wasn't his biggest strength unlike the others.
I mainly agree with you in the top 3. I don't agree with Nadal /Borg as all time great forehands.
My top 5 are:
1) Lendl
2-3) Federer/Sampras
4) Muster
5) Gonzalez

As I mentioned before there are/were some extraordinary forehands that produce amazing results at their times like Borg/Vilas (they heavy topspin ones were revolutionary on the 70ties), Clerc , Perez-Roldan (on clay), Mancini, Engvist, Bruguera(on clay), Roddick and Nadal.
Enqvist, Clerc for the reasons mentioned before.
I'm not sure if I am forgetting an another one worth to be mentioned.

[B]My hall of fame: Roger Federer-Rafael Nadal-Jo Wilfried Tsonga-David Ferrer-Juan Carlos Ferrero-Tommy Haas- Radek Stepanek-Lleyton Hewitt-David Nalbandian-Guillermo Cañas-Carlos Moya-Pete Sampras-Petr Korda- Kent Carlsson-Richard Krajicek-Karol Kucera-Tim Henman-Alex Corretja-Thomas Muster-Michael Stich-Pat Cash-Patrick Rafter-Darren Cahill-Ivan Lendl-Mats Wilander-Miloslav Mecir-Karel Novacek-Joakim Nystrom-Henrik Sundstrom-Hans Simonsson-Anders Jarryd-Jimmy Connors-Bjorn Borg-Guillermo Vilas.

in this discussion Murray's peak forehand isn't neither a WC worthy . hope this helps

Re: 5 Forehands With Deadly Finishing Power and Consistency In the Clutch

yep, Sampras's forehand is often underrated

If we considering entire carriers imo the closest would be something like 1.Fed/Lend 2.Sampras . If we look at peak versions Fed has the edge, at those times unplayable shots. But again half of shot is inside of footwork so this opens new debate...

11 majors while serving with a wrong hand so basically no serve, pathetic slice, miserable backhand, fucked up knees, almost always injured.

and we all know he cant volley so he is limited in so many ways.

you know of anybody else who has managed 11 majors with pretty much one stroke?


i am more objective than you can ever dream to be. i dont have to blindly worship anyone but you do.


i would say it is nadal who has the greatest forehand the world has ever known.


why dont you ask fed about it and he will tell you.

I don't see Fed staying away from Nadal's FH as much as Nadal stays da heck away from Fed's FH. I am just point that out. You tell me what that means.
