Also, on faster courts, he struggles with taking the BH early and on the rise. Haas and Kohlschreiber both do this better than Wawrinka. They sort of "jump" into their backhand, which Wawrinka is unable to do, and often leaves him stranded on the baseline when he could be moving in.
Gasquet's positioning means he doesn't take many balls on the rise either, from either wing. Federer and Haas are the masters of hitting their backhands early and on the rise.

Federer's on the rise backhand is only great when he's using his opponents pace and mostly smothering it at the top of the bounce. He doesn't have the free flowing swing or weight transference to take the ball early and generate a lot of pace.

Didn't he say the same thing about Henin?


Does that mean she's second now?

I prefer Gasquet's backhand. Wawrinka's is a great shot but Gasquet has more variety and his down the line backhand is a thing of beauty.

"In history" is a long time but Wawrinka plays with a lot of power in his backhand compared to the old days. Have to agree with McEnroe. I wouldn't trade Stans 1H BH for any other current star. Not Federer, not Gasquet, not Haas, not Almagro
I AGREE! Nadal is not a great volleyer, but he does have a great overhead smash. Roger is certainly one of the greatest volleyers of all time.

I remember when McEnroe said that he thought Nadal had the best backhand on tour. I think it was in 2006 or 2007. Regardless, it was total nonsense. You can't listen to him when he is talking about greatest ever.

Wawrinka has a great single handed backhand, but the best in the history? I strongly disagree. By the way, comparing Wawrinka's BH with Gasquet's BH is difficult because they use it for different things, with different effects and they shot it from different positions of the court and to different positions of the court. They are both backhands but they are very different. Personally I preffer Gasquet's backhand for every surface except indoor and fast hard courts.

On fast low bouncing grass i would take Youzhny's BH over Wawrinka's any day of the week.

Thing is there is no such thing as low bouncing surface nowadays. Wawrinka's good when he has time to set it up, not that good when he is rushed.

You are never naughty, no? I just couldn't find a picture of someone spanking a woman with a double handed backhand, so I settled for this one
