Re: Single BH dies?

Federer's topspin backhand is mediocre - even in this era dominated by two handers I still wouldn't put Federer in my top 5 single handed backhands.

Funny how over at MTF Davydenko seems to have become in his decline a kind of esoteric, talented headcase in the style of Safin or Nalbandian.
