Yup, at 124 mph the forehand he hit against Isner in the semi finals of the USO is the biggest on record!

Maybe he thinks its mad because we have been told by the so called experts for years that Andy's forehand is nowhere as good as all the other top players.

Can anyone remember the forehand Andy hit against Melzer when we played Austria in Davis Cup? At the time they said it could be the fastest forehand at Wimbledon ever.

I'm not. The sentence just needed an "It's" at the start.

The reason that I am slightly surprised about this is simply that he is not regarded as one of the big hitters on tour and no one really mentions the Murray FH.

Probably because his backhand has always been regarded as his best weapon.  I think the commies are waking up to his forehand though - a number mentioned how improved it was on the Asian swing.  When he gets it right it can be lethal.

Interesting too that the comms were saying its harder to play in a masters when you play an more intense field and you play every day than a diluted field with a day off between matches.

Thanks for that drchef.  Magnificent shot! Smile

Probably because his backhand has always been regarded as his best weapon.  I think the commies are waking up to his forehand though - a number mentioned how improved it was on the Asian swing.  When he gets it right it can be lethal.
As that video clip proved.  I don't know what other comms said, but I was watching those matches on tennisTV.com, the ATP's official live-stream, which comes from ESPN, and their comms were purring over what they called Andy's improved forehand, and serve, whilst at the same time bemoaning the fact that his "famous" backhand return was often letting him down.  It seemed to me though that it wasn't so much a case of his backhand return letting him down as the fact that he seemed to be going for his forehand more often - running round shots which he might normally have hit on his his backhand - and to great effect, and so that's really what the comms were picking up on.

Interesting too that the comms were saying its harder to play in a masters when you play an more intense field and you play every day than a diluted field with a day off between matches.
Well some might argue that playing every day in a Masters (although isn't there usually a one-day break in the early rounds?) keeps the players on their toes and helps keep the momentum going because players get into a rhythm.  The same thing happens in Slams where players should have a day between matches, so they get used to that pattern, and both Timbo and Andy have said that.  Disrupted scheduling often can't be avoided but there's no excuse for the poor scheduling we saw at the US despite all the weather woes.  Incidentally, it's because of the rhythm factor that I'm convinced that the three-day break Andy had before the 2010 AO final was a big contributory factor in his defeat.
