I know Federer is going to win this poll by about 3000000 votes, but it's worth looking at this to see which forehands the tennis lovers prefer, it might be something like Gonzo just ripping it rather than Fed's aesthetic shot.

Exactly, and that's why most of these polls all turn out the same. It's hard to isolate and evaluate one stroke. It turns into a complete game evaluation.

It's really not that hard to isolate a particular shot, but that skills seems to be lost on many people.

In this case though Federer's forehand definitely has a good show at the best forehand of the open era.

Exactly my point. Most of these turn into a who can beat who, or who won the most slam threads, instead of simply evaluating that one stroke.
I just said Gonzo to stir some people up and see that it worked. I almost said Blake.. :haha:

Berasategui on the clay was a lethal weapon, but that was the only surface it was truly effective on.

It was fun to see him when he got on a roll with winners rolling off of his racket left and right.

Gonzo might have the best inside-out FH, especially when hitting it from the doubles alley. Pete's running FH CC was amazing. Overall, though, it has to be Federer.

Definitely an aspect of Federer's game that is in no way overrated. He can literally do anything from any part of the court; you're going to be hard pressed to find someone with that combination of versatility, power, and consistency off any wing in the open era. The shot could also absorb and redirect pace like no other.

Sampras and probably Lendl also make up the top 5, can't decide on which other two belong there.

Federer by a long shot. Arguably the most dominant shot in tennis history.

Way up there in pace, way up there in topspin, he can hit it early, he can hit it late. He can use it defensively, he can use it offensively.

In his prime he rarely missed with it, and the accuracy and angles he produced are rivaled only by a few.

Any one aspect of his forehand, you can find someone else who did it better. Agassi takes it earlier, Gonzo hits it harder, Nadal has more topspin, Nalby has more angles, Sampras had a better runner. But no one combined them all into the same versatile and lethal package as Fed. So yea, its his by a mile.

Best post in the thread, and dead on. I'd also say that his forehand return isn't even impressive....but he doesn't really try to use it aggressively. Much like his backhand return, he just uses it to get into the rally on equal footing.

The point is, anyone can hit a huge one every once in a while, but no doubt Gonzo hits it the hardest consistently.

Haelfix

Anyone who has the racquet head speed to break a forehand mph record is automatically going to put topspin on it. The ball would sail out of the court if it was perfectly flat unless you are at the baseline or further back.

Gonzo's shots are flatter than Nadal or Federer, but still more action than an average ATP player.

I would hardly call that an incredible passing shot...it was definitely great, but that was one of the weakest forehand approaches I have seen him hit.

I just think that if you were trying to prove something about how good Nadal's FH is with that video, then you need a better video. And if you weren't, then you surely must either be saying that Nadal's FH isn't that good (in which there are better videos to prove that isn't the case) or that Federer's BH is great (and this is the FH thread). Not trying to be picky, I just don't find that shot a good example of what Nadal is capable of with the FH.

Back to the thread, Federer's is definitely the most versatile I've seen...Sampras still has the best running forehand. Gonzalez and Nadal have some of the heaviest forehands I've seen, Gonzalez because of the motion and racquet head speed, and Nadal because of the grip.

Gonzo can also spin it more, he does it less often but he's not so bad at that.

And did he hit very spinned forehands sometimes ?

Yes, also Söderling can hit faster forehands than Gonzalez,
but with consistency yes Gonzo is far better than these.

I'm amazed by the confidence he has in this shot and how he can play it very hard from multiple positions.

And with not so many mistakes on that shot, imo.

Haelfix
07-28-2009, 01:51 PM
Sampras actually hit the ball with a lot of topspin. I think I remember seeing a statistic once about the rpm that the top pros hit on their forehands in the 90s. Bruguera and Muster had the most, but Sampras was in like 5th or 6th position, with surprisingly (at least to me) Agassi well behind.

There can be a bit of an optical illusion based on the trajectory that people hit sometimes. Just b/c you moonball a shot doesn't mean it has more or less topspin necessarily.

But yea, Sampras is still a flatter shot, relatively speaking, than what we see from the pros nowdays. Part of that is racquet tech, the rest is gamestyle changes (the follow through in particular) and the control aspect of modern tennis.

Not by a human. They're completely different shots. It's like saying just because you can hit a serve that fast...that you could hit a between the legs shot the same speed. Different angles of motion allow different speeds....serves obviously allow more than other shots due to the angle toward the court and the added power from lift from the legs and the over the shoulder arm rotation.

If lots of players were hitting 115 mph forehands, then it wouldn't be so out of the question that Monfils could hit 120. Seeing as how NOBODY else hits even close to that, it's safe to say that it was just a radar/dumb human error.

Like match point for Nadal last year in the Wimbledon final.

That Monfils forehand is really fast, but I would agree that it can't be 120 mph...I think that camera angle plus the fact that he looped 2 forehands before might give the illusion that the forehand was that hard.

Anybody would, with half a brain. Why do you think they don't make sense?

They thought you meant seeing a different, physically struck forehand. Not the one he hit in Australia at that very moment.

What doesn't make sense?

It doesn't make sense to him because it's practical.

Have you seen the perfection of the gesture, when he's preparing for that, with his feetwork.....
and the movement of his racket that ends just in the middle of his back...:eek::eek::eek:

His forehand is like a quick liquid that slip the air in two!!:worship::worship::worship::worship::worship:

Moya's on clay was :drool:

So effective :worship: I always thought that his forehand was just a bit ordinary, just because it didn't look explosive to me...and then I actually watched a whole match of his and realized how consistent he hit it, with depth and spin.

Of course that backhand was a bit ugly :eek:
