Who has the best overhead/smash?

Who do you think currently has the best overhead/smash on tour? I think it's between Federer & Raonic. They both set up so well for this shot and can hit it with both power & accuracy no matter where they are on the court.

Michi Berrer

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

While Nole's does suck, it puts Lopez & Verdasco's to shame.

Re: Who has the best overhead/smash?

I've heard so much of Berrers legendary smashing abilities, but I have never heard the origin of the joke. Could someone please enlighten me? Preferably with a video, though I have tried a couple youtube searches.
