Delpo for sure, but when he's on, not his stupid muging vs Fed

Re: Who's your favorite Ball Basher?

1. Juan Martin del Potro
2. Tomas Berdych
3. Robin Soderking
4. James Blake (in his prime he was a joy to watch)
5. Marin Cilic
6. Andrey Golubev

I'd also put Gonzalez there even though he's retired, it was a joy to watch him unleash that monster forehand

Re: Who's your favorite Ball Basher?

T'was close between Soderling and Berdych, but if they'd meet I'd be favoring the Swede so I guess he wins.

Re: Who's your favorite Ball Basher?

Soderling, clearly. He reached 2 Finals by doing it in top form

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

GOAT

Re: Who's your favorite Ball Basher?

Watching Del Potro wind his forehand up is something special.

Soderking ofc. In his absence Berdych tries to fill as fav but he'd better start to deliver soon.

Re: Who's your favorite Ball Basher?

Definitely Gonzo, his ballbashing was orgasmic , that's why I voted "other" but I realized you didn't put him because he was retired.

Then I would vote for a semi-retired player : James Blake, semi-orgasmic comparing to Gonzo.

Among more active ones Del Potro or Golubev.

I don't think Cilic is a ballbasher but Gulbis definitely should be in the list, maybe the purest ballbasher of all.

Berdych Del Potro partly.

Re: Who's your favorite Ball Basher?

Quite a few of these are not true ballbashers. Dolgopolov can choose to be a ballbasher even though he slices (but so did Blake). Also Gulbis is a total ballbasher. I think Kei Nishikori is also a ballbasher light. He pretty much hits every ball hard and flat. Anyways I don't really have a favorite because I don't like ballbashers mostly EXCEPT FERNANDO GONZALEZ (until Larry Stefanki got him)
