Best Shots in Tennis #1 – The Forehand

I thought I would kick this series off with a somewhat cliched topic, but what the heck!

Here’s my shortlist amongst current players:

Roger Federer – Silky smooth movement and can hit form any part of the court. The template for the modern day forehand.

Rafael Nadal – Rafa has twice the amount of rotation on the ball than any other player. Like a bull whip on a clay court.

Juan Martin Del Potro – Huge wind up and Boom! Probably the fastest ball off his racket.

Marin Cilic – Federer like in action with great footwork. He can also hit great on the run.

Robin Soderling – Like a sledgehammer, players often remark on The Sod’s ‘heavy ball’. On clay he has more time to crank the lever.

Novak Djokovic – The Djoker can disguise his forehand so well, you don’t know if he’s going to hit a drop shot or pummel it.

Andy Roddick – Still powerful with lots of top spin depending on his mood can still win plenty of matches with the 1-2 punch.

Fernando Gonzalez – Gonzo is nearing retirement now, but at it’s peak, considered one of the best.

Gael Monfils – Reportedly hit the fastest forehand ever and with his physique I’m not surprised.

Fernando Verdasco – Hot Sauce can really let them fly on his day and has the lefty angles too.

Who do you think has the best forehand in the game?
