Two killer shots within the deadly arsenal of these 2 great players. Often played when decide to pull the trigger in neutral rallies or as the finishing shot/blow when they go for the winner and the lines being paint when they make their shot is at a stunning frequency.

So which one is better?

Nadal's FH DTL. This is his only weapon. No1e has many more.

Also FH is always superior to BH. Regardless of how good BH is.

So are you saying Murray's forehand is better than Djokovic's backhand as an overall weapon?

If we are talking about peak Nadal then he should win the poll, without the forehand Nadal is simply not a top 30 player. Nadal has average serve, same goes for the backhand mediocre at best. I dare to say he would be poor mans Monfils duo to insane athelisme.

Nadal's FH...because of the lefty factor, it sets up so many easy pts and dislodges opponents running around their BHs with relative ease and has 'gusto' about it. Seeing it break down Federer's FH is a sight to behold. It's also quite accurate and jumps out (at least when he used to be confident on it)

Of the two, the question "Is he going to go down the line?" is a bigger concern in players' minds regarding Nadal than Djokovic I feel.

Djokovic by a country mile. How is it even a question? When Nole is hitting that shot well, Nadal has no chance. Hell, when that shot is failing him he has still nearly beaten Nadal, see RG 2013 for details. Nothing special about Nadal's shot.

I have seen a fair few times Rafa hitting retrieving winners off Djoko's DTL BH but don't remember Djoko retrieving one Nadal FH DTL with interest.

Rafael's FH DTL made Fakervic and Frauderer cry countless times. Beautiful sight.
He also left Marsel Ilhan completely puzzled at times.
