I think it's pretty clear Djokovic and Murray have the two best backhands in the world, but who has as the third best BH on tour ? In my opinion, Gulbis and Wawrinka have the most powerful backhands, even though Zayed's BH is too good, especially on the run. Your thoughts ?

Wawrinka has an arguably better backhand than Murray IMO...

I'd say Gulbis is up there... Istomin is def up there! for that single shot! ...Paire also.........

Simon actually has a steel backhand, gets overlooked often coz of how he generally plays the game tactically.............

Paire has a great BH indeed, but he's a clown and consistency is very important. Simon and Istomin have good backhands for sure, but I don't think they are better in that department than the players I picked in the poll.

Who cares if he's a bloody clown? You just asked for the single best backhand shots? Him being a clown has nothing to do with how good his backhand CAN be.

He's fairly consistent with that backhand, he's where he's ranked because of it. All he does is crush second serves with it, I'd call it pretty consistent lol

I don't believe Murray's backhand is even better than Wawrinka's in all honesty, it works on a wider range of surfaces, but really, Wawrinka's is on another planet when it's really on....

His backhand can be great, but even this shot has never shown the consistency of the other players so far.
Why not include Istomin? Do you only include commercialised and well publicised names?

lol You included Berdych? LOL! but not Istomin? Oh lord, you only watch the 2nd week of grandslams, don't you? I bet you only follow the top 10.

Sad....

Berdych, backhand, lol

17-0 versus Nadal and you think he has one of the best backhands on tour, what a joke.

Are you not the clown who claimed that Verdasco was going to crush Murray....CRUSH. You are really underrating Murray and overrating Wawrinka here. Stan is not that good, he even said so himself.

I've never seen Istomin slicing a BH...
Berdych's BH is a very solid shot IMO, unless he faces Nadal.

I'm also the clown that said Murray was going to win wimbledon last year and beat Djokovic in the US Open final the year before that, yes remember when the weather forecast had down for excessive winds? I was the one that told djokovic would struggle to live with murray in baseline rallies if it were windy.

It's sad you take everything personally and get an inferiority complex whenver somebody says someone has something better than Murray or whatever, really sad. I'm not saying don't be a fan, but sometimes it's better to just be real and objective. This isn't secondary school, where we're all pimping up our footballs teams we support.

Get your head out of murray's arse and start debating like a tennis fan, not a raging fanboy with all the colours of the rainbow huge bubble text glorifying his tournament success in your signature. It's sad and pathetic. You're not 10.

Slicing a backhand?

What the actual?

lol

This is a tennis forum right? Or are you now bringing up slice because you were caught out for just listing top 10 players as you couldn't really think of anybody with a good backhand on tour? lol

There are only three top 10 players in my list.

If you think Wawrinka has a better backhand than Murray then I don't think I can debate with you. You clearly have very little knowledge of tennis. Wawrinka's backhand is very good, Murray's is one of the all time greats. That is all.
