It's one of the top 5 baackhands of all time, yet Federer gets beaten by players who pepper that wing constantly? It's not even in the top 5 backhands of this generation, let alone of all time. Get a grip. It's a borderline liability and he can't hurt most players off of that wing unless it's on the pass. What are you smoking that makes you think it's better than Murray's, Djokovic's, Nalby's, Safin's, Agassi's, Gasquet's, Kuerten's, etc, etc?
Agassi? Ha... Federer ripped Agassi with his backhand in so many ways it's unbelievable, he won the US Open 2005 match against Agassi (when it was windy) because of his BH.
Against Gasquet he consistently wins with his BH > he pushes Gasquet back and often dominates in the backhand-to-backhand rallies.
Until recently (due to the forehand), Djokovic has been his bitch, against him Fed's backhand is a weapon.
Mugay? When did his backhand become so good? When he won A Grand Sla...? O...
Kuerten's backhand was only good on clay, on hard court he was never good because he could never have the time to unleash a BH (due to his long, elastic wind up)
Nalbandian = one in a million
Funny how a lot of uneducated 15yr old kids on MTF's opinion suddenly becomes more valuable than someone who has been watching tennis for years (Leif Shiras).. a lot of other people consider Fed's BH to be right up there - and I can get links if you want me to.
But you believe me - do you know why? Because it's true.
