The Fastest Forehands!
« on: November 11, 2008, 12:45:18 PM »
I was thinking to make this thread Blake's Fastest Forehands... but then, that way I'm only limiting the field, because there are many other players who can hit 100+ mph once in a while. So, instead, this thread will be The Fastest Forehands (by anybody). And, also, the idea is to post only the points... not full matches & highlights with messages where to find the shot in the match. But, if there is no option for that, then at least the highlights.

Here's Blake's FH against Faurel, at R64 AO 2006, 2MB MP4 file:

great idea!!! I plan on uploading maybe a Federer forehand music video or something.  I've already got plenty of individual clips that I can gather up in iMovie HD.
but for now, here:

it's slomo but you know it's gotta be huge!!!

Blake does have a monstrous forehand, but only when the ball is jumps high into his high strike zone.  give him low balls and his strokes look ugly, but pit him against a player like Nadal or Moya who hit heavy topspin and he strikes beautifully.

Berasategui vs. Larson, RG 1994 -- xvid -- MP4 format

This is in one point: 2nd FH is Killer(!), and the 4th FH is a winner:

Just got these... @ the Blake forehand: WOW.  That guy didn't even realize how badly his second serve got raped until 5 secs later  :rofl_2:

And yeah, Berasategui absolutely throws his entire body into the forehand and creates pretty massive pace  :lmao:

I'm looking forward to people start posting some of the Sampras running forehands from the mid 90s: Some were so explosive, I kept thinking that perhaps the opponents shouldn't try to actually pull him out wide on the FH side, since it was only a matter of Sampras getting to it and going for an explosive winner.

We need to see some of the Larsson, Korda, Gustafsson and Equvist FHs during the indoor season: They used to hammer the ball pretty flat too.

Tsonga vs. Djokovic, Marseille 2009 semifinal: Tsonga dominated the match with powerful groundstrokes and won the match; though, an angry monster forehand came from Djokovic just few points away from his defeat: The score board reading (not included in the clip) showed, first 197kmh, then 187kmh. So, this forehand was either 122mph or 116mph.!

Enjoy!

The file name is: Djokovic_Tsonga_FH2.AVI

Nice,  Djokovic hit a similar go-for-broke wounded animal type forehand in the Queen's final.  I'll post that up.

Murray also hit a nice scorcher down the line against Ancic, worthy of mention.

I'll get those two up soon.
