  • No way. Too overrating some forehands that just do well at some limited situations. And Djokovic's and Nadal's forehand are not defensive at all. It seems defensive just because they don't have to be aggressive and risk-taking to win against most players. Yeah, Fed's is more time-depriving and attacking. Nadal's is more spinned and errorless. But what makes The Big Three and Delpo's forehands among the greatest is the all-roundness and reliability. They can hit their forehands "well and consitantly" at any spin rate, at any height, at any posture, at any situation, at any day.

  • generating the power after the contact, OMG you rarely can hear anything more stupid, and this is common wisdom among terrible tennis coaches lol. One obviously generates power before the contact and at the contact, and what happens after has 0 influence, but the release after the contact point tells how much power was generated before the contact point, so logical.

  • Federer's attacking forehand is, was and will always be the greatest ever. Nadal's the best defensive forehand.

    jenni431jenni431Il y a mois
    • @Daniel W Nope. It's still not as good as Roger's. Why? Because Novak's double hander makes mincemeat of Nadal's forehand on grass and hard courts. Nadal's forehand is his biggest weapon and also the place where his biggest weakness is. Whereas if you tried to look at Federer's forehand as a weakness on any surface then God help you. Rafa didn't have anywhere to hide in 2017 when Federer started taking the ball so early on the backhand. If Rafa can't hurt Roger on the backhand then he sure as hell can't win by going to his forehand.

      jenni431jenni431Il y a 6 jours
    • Nadal's classic forehand isn't defensive at all. It literally his biggest attacking shot. The power + topspin kick forces a weak reply which he then puts away. Edit: yes he also has a defensive forehand ofc

      Daniel WDaniel WIl y a 6 jours
    • Nadal's forehand is pretty damn good when he strikes instead of defending too. But I agree, Federer's forehand is the best the game has ever seen

    Aviral bajajAviral bajajIl y a mois
    • You are one of those people who started watching Tennis after 2015. His forehand used to be most precise because he used a smaller racquet frame meant to be used for precision before. Now he has changed to a larger one hence more errors and another reason for errors is because he has always being an aggressive player not a defensive one.

  • del Potro speed and power comes from the way he holds and hits the ball. Not "long lever" or etc. He does it almost flat, while using an eastern grip. All the others have very open grips, all western. There is a difference in how much pace can you inject while only brushing the ball.

    • @Ifeanyi Ikpegbu lol. Wonder where has Federer been in the last few months.

      thefridgemanthefridgemanIl y a mois

  • "but most of the good work (by Kyle Edmund) comes after the contact point" - hmm I know a couple of physicists who will disagree with you there; they may agree that his racket speed increases so fast between the (minimal) wind up and the contact point that only after that you can notice how the power was generated; the way he finishes, racket pointing downward, is also a consequence of the way the racket went into it, not a cause of spin what happens after the contact will never affect the spin or speed of the ball; the spin, the speed AND the finishing motion are all a consequence of what happened before; such is the nature of time BTW I would put Federer's forehand in there with Tsitsipas, "taking away time". Although he has great precision too, taking away time is really Fed's trademark, featuring an early contact point (as you mention) Great categorization!

  • i guess the moral of the story is that there are a ton of benefits from making sure you contact the ball in front of you haha. nearly half of these summaries are just saying contact the ball in front of you, but then listing a different reason to do so each time. It truly is something that you get a ton of benefit from.
