it have to agree that its probably ryu seung min. his third ball attacks are rarely returned. but chiang peng lung also had a great forehand

I think Ryu's forehand looks better than it is because of his excellent serves. He gets lots of pop ups that are easy to kill. Kim Taek Soo had an amazing forehand considering he had very average serves.

Wang Liqin can kill the ball almost from under the table. I have to vote for Wang. I don't know how many times I've seen him kill the ball when it looked like the opponent returned the ball low and fairly short.

theman's right, if you notice, wang may generate more forearm power, but the way ryu uses his whole body is more risky and by far generates the most power.

Someone has said andres filemon or something like that. May have spelled it wrong. It's quite likely whoever has the strongest forehand isn't actually one of the best players. Very rare is the complete package it takes to be pro. I'm thinking of the golfers who win those driving contests. It would seem they dont have the complete game to make the circuit, although I'm sure they all play very well.

Ma Lin or Chen Qi - very, very explosive forehands: absolutely lethal on 3rd ball attacks and open rallies.
Edit: Also when I think about it, Hou Yingchao... very powerful

I guess there it depends on how you define strong. I don't see Ma hitting the ball that hard compared to jpen's or the old pips out hitters, but he does a great job of spinning it out and away from the opponent's wide forehand.

just wondering..
 
why do you think cpen players don't take risky forehand shots..?
 
or hitting a ball with using their whole body to excute the forehand...?

I thought Timo Boll said that Ma Lin's forehand wasn't the fastest, but it has the best placement.

Chen Qi has the most powerful forehand although his consistency needs to be improved.

Ma lin - finish third ball
Timo Boll - better spin
Chen Qi - better speed
Wang Liqin - won all drives x drives , playing against all players at world.
Ryu - most power some times, but is not the best all time.

What does Timo use on his forehand? Isn't he a butterfly player?

a thought about ryu seung min's forehand... no doubt it's one of the strongest.  but from my observations, it's his step around forehand drive that's incredible.  if there was a sub-category, ryu seung min in my mind has the strongest step around forehand.  but when the ball actually goes to his forehand side, he seems more ordinary, all that inhuman power that he puts into the step around sorta disappears on the more regular forehand shots.  just my opinion, might be making a fool of myself...

I thought ryu would be in the 5'9 range... or am I wrong.  Wang LiQin is at least 6'4 or 5
