      Best backhand in the world?

      Hi guys just wanted to get some talk going on the top players backhands. I still to this day see players just using it to block/punch around. However I don't see anything ovtcharov cannot do very well. What you think?

      Part of the reason he has 2 WTTC titles and an Olympic Gold in singles is that ZJK has a pretty darn good backhand. He can control a point and keep an opponent on his backhand because of how good his is. If there is a backhand to backhand rally and the player tries to turn to the forehand, they are in trouble against ZJK. I would say ZJK has the best and there are a few close behind him. Fan Zhendong, at some point will probably have the best backhand. But it is true, Dima's backhand is awesome. Pretty close.

      Back in the day Schlager's backhand was pretty darn solid. And there is no need to mention Kreanga's. His is still pretty darn amazing. When he was in his prime, that was, perhaps, the most powerful backhand ever.

      Oh Sang Uhn, when his BH is on, it is game over. Ditto Samsonov and Schlager, best controlling BH around.

      Karakasevic surely got an amazing backhand! Schlager and Zhang Jike also makes it to the top!

      Yes he is - again. He injured his Achilles tendon and recovery was difficult, but there is a fairly new video on youtube from the team championships 2014.

      Hugo Calderano also has a great BH. He surprised Boll with it and beat him in the German League this year.

      Great discussion guys. i see the phrase "controlling backhand" a lot. This is kind of my point/argument/discussion, control it until they get a chance to switch? Dimas wrist seems the key watching his execution. BH counter loop is impressive.

      I almost forgot about Person. His backhand was great back in the 1990s.

      Guys you are forgetting JSH. If he goes BH to BH with any player he will win the point.
      But i think ZJK has the most complete BH. Other players lack something on their BH. For example Kreanga has huge BH but he lacks on the table BH and often just block the ball.

      Zhang Jike. He can use his backhand close or away from the table and has the best Banana flick receive in the world. His backhand is aggressive and he can use it to control the point as well.

      Well to be fair it was him that first popularised that technique in the first place hahaha.
      I think Kreanga had a fantastic backhand back in his day. Not control wise, but more of a "i am gonna kill you with it" type of play
      But if we're talking about overall, yea ZJK does have the most complete BH in the world...

      The best it depends on what everyone see as the best... For me kreanga ( i'm from Greece, this mean a lot for my choose ) is the player that put something NEW at the meaning of BH.. After Kreanga, BH has take a progressive way..
