12 Best Tennis Players With The Fastest Forehand Of All Time

You’re about to get served with the best tennis players with the fastest forehand of all time.

When I played tennis in high school, my only skill was getting angry and throwing the racquet across the court, aside from looking really good in a tennis skirt. I’m not too quick on my feet, nor do I have enough arm strength to hit the ball really hard and look as cool as the players do on TV. I kind of just existed on the team and did my best and got a nice sweatshirt out of the situation. I also got to be excused from class when we had tournaments. That was probably the only benefit in my eyes.

There are a few key moves on the tennis court that one should know in order to try to be a good player. You, of course, need a decent serve, which can be a small bounce and a hit or as much as a spike-like motion where you can practice your loudest tennis grunt. You also should have a pretty solid backhand, even though it’s difficult. I never mastered this move, but I tried really hard so I could look somewhat cool. Mostly you need a good forehand, as that’s the primary thing you’ll be doing on the court. It looks fairly simple and it’s really intuitive, but it takes a lot of strength and power to be accurate and fast.

Quite a few familiar names will appear on this list because many of them were also on our list of the 16 Best Tennis Players Who Have the Best One and Two-Handed Backhand of All Time.
