11 majors while serving with a wrong hand so basically no serve, pathetic slice, miserable backhand, fucked up knees, almost always injured.

and we all know he cant volley so he is limited in so many ways.

you know of anybody else who has managed 11 majors with pretty much one stroke?


i am more objective than you can ever dream to be. i dont have to blindly worship anyone but you do.


i would say it is nadal who has the greatest forehand the world has ever known.


why dont you ask fed about it and he will tell you.

I don't see Fed staying away from Nadal's FH as much as Nadal stays da heck away from Fed's FH. I am just point that out. You tell me what that means.

Re: 5 Forehands With Deadly Finishing Power and Consistency In the Clutch

yep, Sampras's forehand is often underrated

If we considering entire carriers imo the closest would be something like 1.Fed/Lend 2.Sampras . If we look at peak versions Fed has the edge, at those times unplayable shots. But again half of shot is inside of footwork so this opens new debate...

in this discussion Murray's peak forehand isn't neither a WC worthy . hope this helps

I really think the Borg/Lendl forehands were analogous to the forehands of Nadal/Federer. Borg with great accuracy, placement and consistency while Lendl with the power and clutch. Certainly both, especially Borg's forehand, was ahead of their time. Sampras had a tremendous forehand, but I mean hard to really rate considering playing from the baseline wasn't his biggest strength unlike the others.
I mainly agree with you in the top 3. I don't agree with Nadal /Borg as all time great forehands.
My top 5 are:
1) Lendl
2-3) Federer/Sampras
4) Muster
5) Gonzalez

As I mentioned before there are/were some extraordinary forehands that produce amazing results at their times like Borg/Vilas (they heavy topspin ones were revolutionary on the 70ties), Clerc , Perez-Roldan (on clay), Mancini, Engvist, Bruguera(on clay), Roddick and Nadal.
Enqvist, Clerc for the reasons mentioned before.
I'm not sure if I am forgetting an another one worth to be mentioned.

Hilarious to see people argue that Nadal has the best forehand ever. It is a great shot no doubt but far from the best forehand ever. If he had the best forehand ever he would've won more than 2 hardcourt slams (or is it 3?).

Re: 5 Forehands With Deadly Finishing Power and Consistency In the Clutch

The biggest forehand I have seen belongs to Ivan Lendl.He has no competition on that stroke. Perfect combination of power, control, slow average of unforced mistakes and high average of winners. While he started to rule the points with that stroke he slowly started to hammer and hammer their rivals in order to control the points and it was only a matter of time until he finished them with a winner. He had by far the best forehand I'd evers seen.

People forgot some players of the 80ties and 90ties with amazing forehands as Jose Luis Clerc, Guillermo Perez Roldan and Alberto Mancini. Amazing forehands with big power but quite unstable. On the 80ties Perez Roldan used to have one of the biggest forehands on clay courts. Clerc on the late 70ties and early 80ties was one of the few players that managed to overpower Lendl.

On the 90ties Thomas Enqvist was one that used to overpower Andre Agassi. Enqvist had an amazing power on his forehand (and backhand too).

Re: 5 Forehands With Deadly Finishing Power and Consistency In the Clutch

Gonzalez's FH is a joke as best shot, I mean, he had a looot of power but most of the his strokes were errors, he made a ton of UE

Best FH belongs to Federer, best mix of power + direction + accuracy.
Blake's and DelPo´s are also amazing, not that consistent.
