Re: Who the hell on he tour hits a heavy topspin TWO-HANDED backhand?
Ferrer's inability to go DTL off a low Federer slice brought this topic into question today. He just doesn't have the spin off the backhand to lift the ball up over the high part of the net and bring it down inside the court with the linear 2hbh he hits. This makes his inevitable cross-court reply very predictable and attack-able.
Even Djokovic depends on having a high ball on the backhand (which Nadal will readily provide for him) to go down the line with consistency. This is perhaps why Federer's bh slice gives Djokovic trouble. Although his backhand has more spin than Ferrer's - it's certainly not a spinny shot.
Contrast this with Nadal, who can brutalize Federer's low slice with the amount of spin he has on his forehand. It will easily clearly the net and go back down well inside the court. He can thus go anywhere he wants with it - cross-court, DTL - Federer has to guess.
Who on the tour, hits 2hbh so spinny that they can easily lift a low slice up and down over the highest part of the net?
