What do you think of Federer's backhand against Nadal's forehand?

As we all know, many players fix their shootings to Federer's backhand when competing against him. His backhand is sometimes unstable and is easy to shoot out of the baseline or caught up on the net, expecially when against Rafael Nadal. If he can overcome his weakness of backhand, he can win many more games.

nadal's forehand is just a monster, but one thing i like about federer's backhand is the look on his face. federer makes it look so easy to hit that backhand and drive it where ever he wants. federer is just a smoother player than nadal and much better to watch

Quite agree with you! Federer's single backhand is unprecedented ,I personally think so. His backhand shooting is very graceful and enjoyable to our audiences. Though he is not in a super good condition, I'm confident that he will soon adapt himself and regain his commanding power.

Over the years, Federer's backhand has improved a lot. But his last match against Nadal (the Australian Open) Federer's backhand has failed him. With regards to Nadal, come to think of it, it seems his time to shine has come. Although his style of playing might wear him out too soon. And what is amazing is that Nadal plays left handed when in fact he is a natural right handed.
