this was pretty good (unfortunately both had Nadal involved in it, in the losing end)

Anyone here noticed most of these highlights involve Rafa in the losing end of these ball bashing matchups against these guys?

Del Potro 2009 US Open has definitely gotta be up there

Re: What's the best display of ball bashing tennis you've ever seen?

Why is it that most of the matches I think of have Nadal on the losing end? Gonzo, Soderling and Rosol have all shown that skill. Could add on Tsonga at AO and del Potro at USO 2009 (hesitant to put delPo's win over Federer but no doubt the one over Nadal was ball bashing).

Non-Nadal answer: Before Rosol at this year's Wimbledon, the big upset was Gulbis beating Berdych. When Gulbis' unforced errors are low (which is not often), the ball bashing is mesmerizing. I think to when he played Karlovic in the final of Delray Beach - to this day, I've never seen anyone bash back Ivo's serve like that.

Andy Murray: 2012 Olympic gold and silver medalist. US Open Champ. Wimbledon champ. Never been prouder of him.

The Brian Baker Story. Proof that truth is stranger than fiction... until Hollywood buys the rights and proceeds to keep screwing the script up.

Tsonga vs. Nadal was no ball-bashing.

The best display must be Rosol in the 5th set. That's pretty much the definition of ball-bashing right there.

Maybe Tsonga constructed his points better and came to the net more but he was definately spanking the sh*t out of that ball.

Also was lucky with the netcords / drop volleys landing that short but come on. He blew Nadal off the court that day.

Haven't watched many but Rosol was really quite incredible, especially in that 5th set.

Seems to me that ball bashing tennis is like Kyptonite to Rafa Nadal's moonballing tennis, lol.
