Delpo is not hitting as nearly as hard as he did in his early career, Delpo can hit harder, but as far as average strokes speed is concerned, Berdych has the edge.

Bizarre question. It's Delpo and it's not close by any means.

Well, surely Berdych has hit way harder than everyone else (on average) last night.

Del Potro can hit it harder but he's more particular about the type of ball he can get a good hit on.

HE BEAT BALLBASHERS, THEREFORE HE HITS THE HARDEST

Del Potro has more natural power, but his groundstrokes aren't really that much more powerful. He goes 80% most of the time. When he hits with full power, he hits about as hard as Soderling but flatter.

Berdych is a more DEVASTATING hitter than Delpo by far though.

What makes Delpo tough for those bashers is that he can keep the ball deep even against the biggest hitters, which makes it tough for them not to miss.

His ability is to absorb power not create it.

When he wants to. On average though they're pretty equal.

Soderling until he's officially retired. When playing Berdych and Delpo he put both of them on the defensive. Then you hit BIG. Delpo masters the counter-game much better than Berdych though, so his H2H vs them is very different.

Re: Most Powerful Hitter: Berdych or Del Porto?

Del Potro's fh is more powerful while Berdych's backhand is more powerful than Potro's. Berdych's serve and returns are also more powerful, so overall Berdych.

All things are subject to interpretation whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth.

Consistently with Power: Berdych.

Re: Most Powerful Hitter: Berdych or Del Porto?

Hardest i agree, Soderling. But with this two it's del Potro, however Berdych is a better striker than del Potro, he has more variety in his ground strokes than del Potro. He can hit good angle shots which i don't think del Potro can do.

Re: Most Powerful Hitter: Berdych or Del Porto?

soderling and rosol can just destroy a ball- like against nadal

del po has odd occasions where he does that

berdych is a huge talent who never really stayed consistent

God is Love. To know Love is to know God. So ask yourself if you hold any hate for another in your heart how can you have room for Love, room for God

Neither of them (answering the opening post instead of the thread title), but the average speed of Berdych's strokes are higher than those of Del Potro's, who plays a low risk game.
