Re: Rank the top 8 players from most offensive to most defensive

i bet Fed is Serbian enemy #1 . If he doesn't like Nole and his family it doesn't mean that he doesn't like you. People shouldn't take so personally what is happening with some guy who has millions on bank account and doesn't give a shit for random people who are surviving from today to tomorrow

No way. He hits the hardest out of anyone by a distance, but hitting the ball hard doesn't necessarily equate to being offensive. Del Potro plays the percentages far more than Tsonga, Berdych and even Federer, his shots have a lot of margin.

No he's not, he just hits the biggest ball.

Del Potro is not the risk-taker that guys like Tsonga or Berdych are. He's much more likely to stay the course. His shot-selection usually ranges between deep balls up the middle or cross court, where he basically challenges opponents to withstand his power. He's often play percentages, and it actually makes him a bit predictable.

Edit: Just read Lenders' post, and he sums it up nicely.

What about his slicing and dicing, is that offensive as well?
Don't you know? Framed backhands are the most aggressive shots in the game.
