Never seen enough from him to judge it (only remember the match with Ivanisevic really, and I was about 10 back then )

I just looked at active players with my picks.

Re: Best players at certain shots

I still have to give Federer a thumbs up for his inside-out forehand. I mean when he is on, he hits that thing so flush and flat it just skids off the court. Nadal has a fantastic one as well, but loads up the spin on the ball too much for my taste on that inside-out forehand.

Federer / Haas / Safin / Gaudio / Kuerten / Youzhny / Nadal / Gonzalez / Ljubicic / Hewitt / Soderling / Wawrinka / Coria / Nalbandian / Kohlschreiber

Soderling has a nice one as well, but I don't think it is Robin's signature shot, not to mention it really seems to be a fantastic shot for him when it is a high ball that he can just flatten since he uses such a pummeling grip. For Federer, that inside-out forehand has won him so many important points, most notably the one saving break point when he was 2 sets to love down agaisnt Haas at the 2009 French Open.

Federer / Haas / Safin / Gaudio / Kuerten / Youzhny / Nadal / Gonzalez / Ljubicic / Hewitt / Soderling / Wawrinka / Coria / Nalbandian / Kohlschreiber
