Ferrer's forehand better than Tsonga's, Djokovic's, Berdych's AND Del Potro's overall? :help: :tape:

Talk about being a deluded clown.

Nadal has by far the best FH in the game, not in Top 10, but overall and not only for this generation, but probably a top 3 ever.

I'm a Fed fan, but for me it's curious for ppl rating his or Pony's FHs better than Nadal's, that's just insane.

Anytime Rafa can turn around and hit the ball with the FH - you know this point is slowly (or not) becoming his biatch.

No one is That dominant with this shot. The guy has barely any serve, BH, slice, volleys, technique, etc. But he has this FH. And psycho-physical abilities as well ofc, but it's all about this powerful whip.

It's about forehands in general, not just the ones that actually land inside the court.

you obviously didn't watch Fed from 2004-2007. Had the same consistency as Nadal's at absolute peak but in term of variety it was lightening years ahead. It was scary how it looked and it never broke down, any match which Fed lost in that period was due to awful backhand.

i've watched Fed since the 90s

And his FH despite being among the greatest shots in history is still right behind Rafa's in my book.

Fed always had the FH to capiatlize on all the rest he does have. Rafa has always been 70% FH and this is absolutely incredible.

Federer's FH is probably Pony like and a bit better, but for me it is quite behind Rafa's.

Ppl tend to forget Fed's serve, brain, variety, footwork, touch, etc. These combined with his FH made him the greatest.
Even the Chillean Bull had a more standing out FH than Fed, what to say about Rafa.

In that period Fed played most of the time just slice BH, even on clay. Try to imagine a modern game player who is playing most of the time just slice on one side and is ranked in top 10, pretty unimaginable. Fed, by playing slice BH had the best 4 consecutive years in open era history, that's how his forehand was good. Take Tsonga's or Delpo's bashing FH on the day when everything is going in and you'll get Fed's FH in 4 years time with exception that watching Tsonga or Delpo you get an impression that those are risky home run shots with big margin for error, watching Fed hitting those FHs you had a feeling like he is taking some zero margin for error basic shots
