I'm a fan of Petzschner, but at his worst Picasso deserves mention here. Interesting to me that he does much better in doubles - the quicker points must suit him better.

Agree about Chardy but I really wouldn't say Leo is a pure ballbasher, he can slice and actually think and construct some points. IMO, that's his better version, when he is a bit more patient and doesn't rush too much while still trying to dictate and keep rallies short. When he is in his full ballbashing mode, way too hit-or-miss and inconsistent.

Nadull.
Someone is bound to bring him up on a thread like this one, so I felt I would do it myself for a change.

Re: Who is the biggest brainless ballbasher in the ATP?

Dolgo is tactically stupid - he gets fooled into being drawn into a slicing battle in AO against Tomic and loses whereas if he just overpowered Tomic he would have won.

He's more schitzophrenic - one moment basher, one moment pusher.

Re: Who is the biggest brainless ballbasher in the ATP?

Many good candidates here. My vote goes to Golubev, the guy couldn't change his game if his life depended on it.

Blake and Korolev also deserves a mention.

I just googled Zhenya and the second image in search page is hugely disturbing!

Bjorn Borg:

French Open W (1974, 1975, 1978, 1979, 1980, 1981)

Wimbledon W (1976, 1977, 1978, 1979, 1980)

3 Channel Slams; 4 Consecutive RG; 5 Consecutive SW19

Re: Who is the biggest brainless ballbasher in the ATP?

i think you havent seen golubev for quite some time, have you?

i believe due to injuries he's not bashing anymore, and perhaps this is also a reason of his downfall - same what happened to gabashvili a few years before

chardy is a pretty brainless ballsmacker, he also has a very long history of choking

if the challengers count, kudryavtsev deserves a special mention - he just leaves his head at home and goes play tennis

I will burn
And you will die...
