On Monday during ESPN’s Wimbledon coverage, outspoken John McEnroe declared Stan Wawrinka’s backhand the greatest shot he’s ever seen in tennis. Today, while seated next to McEnroe on the set, Brad Gilbert revealed his best shots in the history of the game.
Gilbert says Pete Sampras and Boris Becker have the best serves and shots ever in the game. He rates Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Ivan Lendl’s forehands as tops in that category.
Former pupil Andre Agassi, Gilbert said, had a better backhand than Wawrinka. He also tabs Novak Djokovic’s return of serve and McEnroe as the best volleyer the game has ever seen.
