Quit starting threads to mention Nalbandians name. Nadal and Nalby have the best backhands on tour?? what the hell is wrong with you?

Djokovic for 2-hander. why? cuz he can flatten it out, topspin it, angle it, not to mention he has excellent 1-handed slice, drop shot and volleys. 2-handers should never never never neglect learning a slice and drop shot (you can execute these shots two handed also but I encourage you to learn to do them 1-handed for reach and control. stick to 2 hands for your normal groundstrokes if that is your expertise.

just my 2 cents. :)

Look at Tommy Haas' topspin backhand and you can't go wrong bro.

Eddster
04-21-2007, 03:36 PM
I would say Murrays backhand is as good as Djokovic's mind you I have seen more of it, so I guess I am biased, they both seem to be equally good as each others.

As long as Kuerten doesn't retire, his backhand is the best on tour.

Nalbandian has a good BH, but Nadal? :haha: the guy looks like he's playing baseball hitting that backhand.

i just have to say you have some great faves in nalbandian, dementieva, and serena. now if you threw in djokovic and andreev to that mix. :p

i think nalbandian, murray, safin and djokovic have the best two handers. i play two handed with a one handed slice, which i actually use often, so it can be done. i try to hit my backhand like murray only because to me it requires the least preparation. i hit open stanced. i'm not sure if i'm answering your question.

If Nalby is better than ljubo why is he 2-5 vs Ljubo in his career including 0-4 last 4 matches and why is his record this year 7-8 while ljubo is 22-8.

NYCtennisfan
04-21-2007, 05:14 PM

It has not just "shined occasionally" in the past 12 months. He has gone up against many of the players mentioned in this thread and gone BH-BH and won a good portion of the battles. Gasquet, Youhzny, Haas, Nalbandian, Agassi (when Fed's BH was weaker than it is now), and more.

It's not the best, but to laugh it off does not do justice to that wing of Federer's groundstrokes. Nalbandian after the 2005 USO, Davydenko after the 2006 USO, and other players when interviewed after a loss to Federer mentioned how well he was playing off of the BH wing which surprised them.

because ljubo needs to play all the tournaments of the year to get a good rank, nalbs plays occasionally with almost always good results

Whoever thinks fed does not have a great backhand is insane. It's spectacular on grass and hard court and 5% less than incredible on clay. Nadals backhand is nothing special at all but his forehand is wicked.

Nalby was lucky to make the final in 2002 due to weak draws.
Roddick came back with with a 138 bomb to seal the deal and broke his spirt in the tie break @ the open in 2003.

Federer had cramps and fatique during the TMC final.

Nably is a good player, but had luck on his side sometimes. Look at this title total, that says enough.

Gasquet. Federer's is also pretty good.

leng jai
04-22-2007, 01:29 AM
If you factor in the slice backhand (which you should) then Federer is up to and Haas moves further up the list. Federer's topspin backhand is too inconsistent and doesn't have the raw power of a Safin or Gasquet backhand. It is also the shot that is most likely to break down under pressure. He does possess great passing shots on his backhand however. Safin doesn't have a great slice backhand, only uses it defensively. His height might also make it more difficult to hit it.

I don't think I've ever seen Gasquet hit a slicebackhand with the motive of point construction. Nalbandian has a nice slice backhand but again, he doesn't really use it with much intent. Kuerten's slice backhand is a joke.
