The highest measured spin in a groundstroke? It's not Nadal's forehand
Federer's backhand slice has been measured as having the highest spin rate of any groundstroke, measured at 5300 rpm. Nadal's highest measured forehand is 4900rpm. Interestingly overall the average spin rates of slices have increased most out of all shots in tennis. Nadal and Federer both have a higher average rpm for backhand slices than for their topspin forehands.
So it seems that not only has topspin been affected by the changes in technology, but slice has been affected even more. It seems that players hit the ball more aggressively downward and drive it less nowadays.
What do you guys make of this development?
