I agree with you. His Forehand at his peak is better than Fed's.I know this has been a much debated topic and I'm a Fedfan, but I do believe personally that his forehand was better than Fed's.
I could read some players who though the same.
He did not always hit it, sometimes he could also spin it, and he had such confidence.
Yes he took more risks than Fed with that, but that's because his backhand was much less effective. And his consistency was good imo considering the risks he took.
