Poll: The battle of the weak forehands: Berdych vs. Tursunov

I am surprised there is no poll for this match, it promises to be highly entertaining with two of the weakest forehands on the tour. Both men would love to have a forehand like, say, Stepanek, but they will have to do with what they have. Thoughts?

If the thread was made in a ironic way (meaning the contrary as you said) I don't find Berdych's forehand too strong, but his backhand is

A post that deserves to be on MTF Hall of Fame soon:

This match will go 5 sets and both men wish they had either a Björkman or a Stepanek forehand, the main question is when it will be played due to the weather.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Voted Tursunov in 5, but now i'm having doubts whether byrdych will lose to him if it goes to the 5th.

Unless it is a bad match up for berdych I cant see how tursunov wins this - He hits hard but has never really impressed me that much

Re: Poll: The battle of the weak forehands: Berdych vs. Tursunov

It's not like either of these guys are the beacon of stability, so anything could happen in this one. I think Berdych will win, but I won't be dissapointed if he doesn't.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

I think Tursunov is going to win... Berdych is good, but I think that Tursunov is better... My guess is Tursunov in 5
