Love the footwork, the high prep, the big U turn before contact, the scissor kick motion on high returns.

Here's a sample of someone's all time list backhands, including two handers off TW forum. "Hoodjem" is a regular poster there. It is interesting to see it change over and over:
1. Laver2. Budge3. Connors 4. Rosewall5. Edberg6. Agassi7. Kuerten8. Vilas9. Gasquet10. Rios11. Lendl12. Becker13. Lacoste14. Ashe15. Borg16. Kovacs17. Safin18. Nalbandian19. Nadal20. Mancini
for kicks and giggles here is another great backhand.
here is a better example of a single.
Gasque't has the best backhand by far in my humble opinion, especially pre 2010......in 2009, i saw an interview with federer, and he said he studies gasquets backhand youtube videos frequently before practicing!!!!. so i studied them, The best youtube compilation video was pulled 2 yrs ago, 10 mins of slow-mo and real speed analysis...
goodness...i think mostly highlights of the 2009 gasquet / roddick Wimbledon match has richard at his peak...or that Wimbledon throughout..
His backhand is a super advanced stroke, like nadal's grondies, and gonzo's, soderling, del potro etc... sporting an incredibly "late" radical wristbreak, just before impact!!!! that unloads and generates a boatload of energy similar to cracking a whip...the new whip style requires the butt of the racket to lie in the lower palm of your hand with your pinkie off the end onmost strokes including the serve......that enables a ton of wrist snap and a radical pro-nation whip, and racket head speed, whilst being friendly on the arm...:)
