Who has the best groundstrokes today, and explain why they are so good.....IYO?

Hi guys,
After seeing Guga back in form, I was just wondering who you thought had the best groundies.
It maybe be for different reasons, so please explain why you think what you do.


Simon V

All my luck is with these boys

Guga in form have the best groundstrokes ... Mention too for Safin groundstrokes and Gonzalez (still need regularity) ...

Guga and Federer. And that is not because I am biassed, that is the reason why I admired them in the first place and they became my favorites. Their groundstrokes are just so beautiful, carefree and fluent.

With each passing season, I discover new reason
SAMPRAS --> Rios --> KUERTEN --> Kafelnikov -->
Federer --> Hewitt --> RODDICK --> GONZALEZ -->
NALBANDIAN --> Benneteau --> Davydenko --> Mathieu -->
TURSUNOV --> Mantilla --> KIEFER --> NADAL -->
Karlovic --> Odesnik --> Stepanek --> Monfils -->

Oliver Cromwell lay buried and dead. Hee-haw. Buried and dead.

Likely Guga, when he is in form.

Not just agreeing with the popular opinion here, but his backhand really is a thing of beauty

Agassi gets a nod here as well.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Yes, Agassi is great. Safin also, when he can keep them in. Gonzalez is pure power, very beautiful as well.
I love single-handed backhands, though, so I stick to Guga.
