Best Backhand

Safin stands out more than anybody to me. I have studied his backhand and I've also listened to commentators like Barry Cowan and the legend,Peter Fleming. Both say Marat Safin has the best backhand in the game ever. I don't think Agassi can compare, it's a great shot in the world of tennis but doesn't stand out as much as Marat's.
Watch the 2004 Masters series Paris final where he demolished Stepanek who is a solid player. His backhand was trully amazing.

You're opinions?

Re: Best Backhand

I think there was already a thread about this....
I don´t think Marat´s backhand is the best backhand in the game ever. There are others, although Marat´s one is great of course...

My fave active players´backhand:
One-handed: Gaudio, Gasquet and Federer´s nice too
Two-handed backhand: Safin and Nalbandian, in my opinion.

Re: Best Backhand

Gaudio's is more beautiful. Nalbandian's is more consistent. I wouldn't say Gasquet has a fluid backhand like Gaudio's, but in terms of power and accuracy it measures up.

Marat´s backhand is one of the best in these days tennis , but I like Nalbandian´s too. And no, I`ve been admiring David´s backhand for a long time It´s not like the guy was born in that MC final, you know.....

Gaudio and Gasquet´s backhand are pure beauty

Re: Best Backhand

It is much more solid, especially on the return of serve.
