It's not the first time that I see his name spelled GasGuet instead of GasQuet...

Re: who has the better backhand? feder or gasguet?

I think Gasquet's is certainly more consistant but in terms of "attack" and change of pace Roger has the edge.

The greatest backhand pass ever.

fucktard. n. A special variety of retard whose condition arises not from clinically demonstrable neurological impairment, but from buttersnap shitfuckery of the mind.

Re: who has the better backhand? feder or gasguet?

Gasquet has more power both CC and DTL and can hit outright winners easier. He can also hit an inside-out BH from the middle of he court for winners which is rare for a one-hander (or two-hander but especially a one-hander)

Federer's Bh is better at:

-returning serve,
-hitting slice
-hitting defensively (slice or flicking the wrist on a reach)
-hitting on the run
-dropshots off of

Maybe neither is better? Maybe they're just different?

Re: who has the better backhand? feder or gasguet?

Roger: +more variation, much better return of serve.
-misshits a plenty when under severe pressure
Gasquet:+ more consistent.

I'll pick Roger's.

Re: who has the better backhand? feder or gasguet?

1 year ago I would have said Gasquet hands down, but Fed's backhand improved so much in the last year that they are really close now in that department... Gasquet might have more power with it, but Fed has much more variety and it's getting more and more powerful He hit a lot of unbelievable winners with it in Madrid, especially the semis and finals

Re: who has the better backhand? feder or gasguet?

Federer's is pretty amazing when he can really roll over the top with it (allowing for some absurdly extreme angles), but he has to be set up perfectly for that and when he's not it's not as impressive as Gasquet's.

I pick Gasquet because he's more consistently impressive off that side.
