well i think single hand is clearly justine but for double backhand ...

i'm not too sure if you guys have seen better but i think tanasugarn's doubles backhand is superb..she hits the ball with what seems to be the same strokes all the time but she ends up directing it away from the opponent...

i saw a live match once and the opponent often stands still when she hits the double backhand cos she ain sure whether to run to cover the down the line shot or the sharp cross court angle.....and normally what the opponent guess is wrong...

unfortunately her forehand ain that good or she would be a consistent top 20 player...

Well there's been some long discussions about in @ WTA World.
Everybody know that the battle is between Justine & Venus, and you even didn't include Venus in the poll ;)
I don't mind after all, for me Justine's is the best anuway ;)

I think Venus should be included in this poll, definitely deserves it moreso than Serena, for example. I think Venus has the best double-handed backhand out there in the woman's field. Her dtl backhand is just laser-like.

But yea, this poll belongs in WTA World.

Amelie Mauresmo
Kim Clijsters

Aint nobody on the womanstour that can hit a backhand like Justine.Justine wins this poll hands down.It's just soo :drool:

12-24-2003, 03:34 PM
Agreed, Justine and Venus would battle it out, representing one and two hands respectively.

But almost all of the top women have excellent backhands.

12-24-2003, 04:52 PM
justine's??? pfff -- maybe for a one hander...
monica seles has the best backhand of all time... no joke. i can understand how she's not in the poll since her ranking is low now... but her backhand is truly the best shot.
jennifer capriati in no way belongs on this poll.

12-24-2003, 08:20 PM
single-handed: Justine... no discussion.. :worship:
double-handed: don't know really.. I agree with whoever *sorry I forgot ur name there :)* said that almost all top women players have amazing backhands.. accurate and stuff.. I love it when they make these really accurate shots *I don't even wanna imagine seeing myself trying lol*

LOL faboozadoo, I take it you're not a big Justine fan?? ;)

12-24-2003, 09:57 PM
No Venus or Lindsay? :eek:

Jennifer and Kim doesn't deserve spots on this poll since their forehands are clearly better than their backhands.

12-25-2003, 02:07 AM
If i could change this poll i would. Venus & Lindsey would be better choices, but Clijsters & Jennifer were the 1st names that came to mind!!

12-25-2003, 05:27 AM
oh no, i love justine... but her forehand is the much better shot... she mis-hits that backhand soooo much, it's frustrating sometimes... but yes, always pretty. i really prefer her forehand-- and so does she...

forehands- serena, jenn, justine, davenport
backhands- monica, venus, lindsay
justine still has the best one hander bc well... it's better than amelie's...

12-25-2003, 06:54 AM
Well, even though Justine got way more votes than Amelie, I cant really say whose is better. They can both hit it with topspin,hard,slice it. But Justine I think can hit more winners off it so i guess its better! she also has a marvelous drop shot, off the backhand, and while Amelie has every shot in the book, I rarely see her use the drop shot so Justine's got the best Single hander out there :)

12-25-2003, 12:53 PM
I think Venus has the best backhand, but Serena's is close behind. The backhand is better than the forehand for both those girls, unlike Capriati and Clijsters.
A lot of people seem to like Justine's and Amelie's just because they have one handed backhands. One handeds may look good to some people but that doesnt mean they are best. Their backhands are pretty good, but not better than Venus or Serena's.

12-25-2003, 12:58 PM
Capriati and Clijsters's backhands in this poll? :eek:

one handed backhand: Justine
2 handed backhand: Lindsay or Venus

12-25-2003, 07:54 PM
I think the reason i put serena on here is becuase she hits everything so damn hard!! I mean, i dont think anyone,including Venus, can hit as hard as Serena!

12-25-2003, 08:21 PM
well serena's forehand is better than her backhand... if you wanted someone who just hits a damn hard backhand-- it would be jelena, seles, venus, or davenport.
