Who Has The Better Backhand? Djokovic or Murray?
So, who has the better backhand, Djokovic or Murray?
Which one do you like and why?
The obvious choice is to pick Djokovic as having the world’s best 2 handed backhand but I’m not convinced. Murray can do things with that shot that is downright unreal.
Low To High Like Djokovic Or Swing Across Like Murray
Regardless, both their backhands are incredible despite the fact that they are different.
You see, Djokovic has more of a “low to high” swing path where the racquet strings face the target line longer. This can create more spin, height, and safety over the net. Murray, on the other hand “swings across” his body more creating a flatter type ball. This is a more advanced type swing that should be excited only after the low to high swing is solid.
Both swing paths can work but usually it’s better to swing more low to high to build that solid foundation.
