Djokovic and it's not even close.

Re: Who Has The Better Forehand? Murray or Djokovic?

Seriously, MTF retardation had reached new lows. First Federer's_Mug (see signature) then this kidiot.

On a completely unrelated note, who do you guys think has a better serve: Roddick or Davydenko?

Re: Who Has The Better Forehand? Murray or Djokovic?

Djokovic's forehand is actually a great shot when it's on. Murray's forehand, even at its best, is mediocre.

Re: Who Has The Better Forehand? Murray or Djokovic?

Djokovic can win slams with his forehand.

That's the only difference that matters, and it's huge.

What a fucking ridiculous thread.

Well done you've managed to miss when presented with an open goal to slag Murray off.

Murray's FH pass is arguably better than Djokovic's and at least close. That's an insignificant factor when compared to the more important ways it's worse, but in no aspect is Davydenko's serve close to equal to Roddick's.

I'm seriously starting to wonder if you are a Murray fan Typhoon, a thread like this was never going to develop in any other way.

Re: Who Has The Better Forehand? Murray or Djokovic?

Murray has a better forehand pass, mainly because he has better movement at the baseline - not better speed or footwork per se, but better tactical sense and precognition while under pressure. This allows him to hit his running forehand pass from a better position than most - maybe even better than Nadal's running backhand, and certainly better than Djokovic.

Djokovic lacks the raw physical strength of Del Potro or Soderling, but he can sometimes hit insanely overpowered forehands because of his superior flexibility.

Let's compare something less obvious next time, like who among the two speaks better English?

Tennis has Great Games & Great Personalities.

We also have Andy Murray.

Re: Who Has The Better Forehand? Murray or Djokovic?

IS this a joke? Murray's loopy forehand is probably his weakest weapon. Djokovic's, especially on return is one of the tour's best. Compare their backhand's and it will be a totally different story.

To the future!

Nishikori, Berankis, Raonic, Kuznetsov, Dimitrov, Coric

Yes - consistent aggression is what sets them apart. There's a reason why Murray plays best as a counterpuncher.

I think Murray has a more reliable forehand return than Djokovic - mainly because of backswing and differences in grip (Djokovic has a full backswing and a western forehand grip; Murray uses an abbreviated backswing + semiwestern). You often see players targeting Novak's forehand when serving down break points, etc.

You could argue that Djokovic is more dangerous with his forehand return though, but overall I think Murray is a better returner - not just from the forehand wing, but on the whole. The difference is minimal though, unlike the disparity between these two players' forehands.

Re: Who Has The Better Forehand? Murray or Djokovic?

Djokovic is capable of hitting through opponents with his forehand on a consistent basis. I would take his forehand anyday over Murray. Murray's forehand is quite mediocre for a top talent. This is basically what results in his slam losses when opponents pick apart his game especially his forehand.
