Many commentators have said Ivan Lendl. Others say, Illie Nastase. Some say Jimmy Connors with this backhand only. What do you say?

You could throw Andres Gomez into the mix:

"My forehand was a trademark in my game. I was one of the first to hit the swinging volleys and remember being attacked by the classic players because I made some mistakes of it. But it wasn't easy with the small head rackets jajajaja!!! News reporters don't remember those racquets and have no idea how really difficult it was to play in comparison with today's equipment."
