    sigit budiarto till this day is still by far my fave MD player...shame he didnt win WC in 03 and 05...his backhand is phenomenal and his jump smashes were filled with awesomeness!

    lets make it interesting, i think its obvious that taufik is a clear winner...but what about the ladies' backhands?who among the ladies badders has the best backhand?

    Default My addiction story - I just want to see his backhand

    20 years + ago....no player that can make me to painstakingly apply for leave or took an MC to buy a ticket and go and watch him play just to see his backhand other than the maestro Xiang GB. He has all the proper example about backhand from the point of technique and outcome. It just made me addicted to see and being able to see it executed in real life worth more than a thousand ticket ( the other player that make me like a drug addict to see was Zhao jumping cross court smashes ).

    20 years forward....when XGB is not playing anymore, that sense of addiction seems to fade, new player come and go and ......well, that sense of urgency to buy any ticket to see them watch will only comes if any of our Malaysia players are playing (that also because to give support) or it is a final event of any tournaments or it just because i have time...............UNTIL the world introduced Taufik. Initially, like any new player, i think this chap from Indonesia is just an ordinary player....and boy.....i was wrong. You won't become an Olympic and World Champion if you don't have something special about you.......an that ordinary assumption became an extraordinary remark when i noticed his backhand !!.....

    Since his 260 kph executed backhand in the 2006 MVP games in Philipines, that addiction seems to come back again and now, every time he plays, i don't care who is he's playing against, he wins or not.....the most important thing that i want to see is his backhand.....i just want to see his backhand........every time he plays on TV, i will record so that i can watch his backhand again and again and again.....Hopefully my addiction will be fruitful, possibly, when the day comes that Taufik himself, would break his 260 kph record.

    Personally, no need to have a vote here........... "Best" won't be good enough to describe Taufik backhand because it is in it's own league by itself, extra-ordinary and unmatched.........he's a "Living legend" in the world of backhand.....he is famous because not of his past titles... he is famous because of his impossible made possible backhand. The backhand is consider the weakest strokes when played but no world class player currently that can make his backhand as lethal as like a forehand other than Taufik himself.

    Bro, here, take these 2 pills for your backhand fetish...

    Yeah.. the only 2 players I follow very closely are ZJH and TH. Like you, I just want to watch them play regardless of final outcome. They're just pure magic on court.

    That is why Taufik also is nicknamed "The Magician".......seeing him using his racket executing a backhand will end up with a lot of magical things and, witnessing one that end up like a forehand blast will make you stunned similarly like an on stage magician using his magic wand.

    ...................and thanks weeyeh for the pills

    Heh, speaking of stunned... that's what his opponents look like when he fires a backhand smash down the line at them.

    I don't think there is any other player in the past or present who can do the backhand smash like TH.

    I just watched a video of TC cup 2000 final, on the 2nd MS TH was up againts Xia Xuan Ze. And on the 2nd set TH returned calmly using his backhand, what supposed to be a net kill turn out to be a disaster for XXZ, its very similar to the WC 2010 final game againts CJ, only that time he did it TWICE in one set.

    And TH was maybe about 19 - 20 yrs old at that time, playing in front of full house stadium in Bukit something in Malaysia, with no pressure whatsoever. Simply amazing to watch.

    Even to witness one will makes you stunned, not to mention to be given some.....if I'm one of those opponent, i will consider myself a lucky player to receive a few from TH....and i don't care if i lost

    If such tournament is possible, I'll be damn sure all Taufik's opponents will end up like this:






    ....from their face expression can simply tell that they are stunned, "how on earth such backhand can become a forehand!!!!!!"

    .....and if they think that they CAN return his majestic backhand, I'll also be damn sure all of them will end up like this:




    ......Mr Kenneth still seems not aware, isn't he..........."Beware Taufik's backhand, it's a killer"

    These are not examples of exceptional backhand shots because all three videos show TH took the backhand at only half-court, certainly far from a good length.
    Try to show some video of his backhand shots hit from the extreme back line. That will be the real test.

    that was some good taufik backhand video!

    i think he is the only one with this unique gift for badminton

    though some may not agree but i think from the posts in this thread

    taufik should deserved to be name the world best back hander.
