5 Forehands With Deadly Finishing Power and Consistency In the Clutch
 
we have lots of new people here or lots of double accounts or both. either way, its best to start a new discussion on the most important of the 2 strokes.


have at it. you have the floor.

make it fun.

i have no use for voting. discussion is far more important.

Fernado Gonzalez. In terms of most stand out shot from their game of all time Federer's may be more precise and versatile but its part of his larger game. Gonzo's was really THE stad out shot of the tour for many years.

long time no see general jeff.

i am going to have to agree.

gonzo`s forehand is most definitely in the top 5 greatest ever. perhaps even in the top 3.

he could blast you right off the court with his forehand.

I agree as well. Gonzo's forehand was something out of this world. It's not necessarily the precision most of the time, I'm awed by the power he generates on it.

Federer
Grosjean
Gonzalez

I'm biased but I think Gonzo' FH is well in the top 5. Federer will have a spot, Nadal probably is at least top 10 when he is aggressive with it.

Blake had a trebuchet of a forehand as well. In his prime, he was bombing that shit everywhere at will.

how about lendl`s sledgehammer forehand?

i hear he could castrate your ass with it from 90 feet away.

Impossible to say really, what with so many players with great forehands over the years. Really can't make an all-time top 5. Some guys have had awesome power, others incredible placement and variety...

As for the best five right now, they'd be Federer, Nadal, Del Potro, Tsonga and Berdych (not in any specific order).

Certainly a great kill shot. Not as great at constructing and dominating points as say someone like Lendl. Different style strength.

anybody for sampras?

how about muster? he basically never missed in the clutch with his forehand.

same with vilas.

and borg. he never missed in the clutch with his forehand either.


i am looking for a forehand that performed best under pressure and also was a devastating forehand with ridiculous finishing power.

Blake's forehand was huge but pretty one dimensional.

Sebastien Grosjean's forehand was simply genius. Wand like his prime.

Re: Let Us Decide On The 5 Greatest Forehands Ever Seen In The Sport
 
Yep. Blake's power on the FH was immense, but it wasn't always accurate. If you're looking for a candidate for one of the biggest forehands in the game, he is certainly up there.

Re: Let Us Decide On The 5 Greatest Forehands Ever Seen In The Sport
 
Mardy Fish' forehand is surely top 5.
