Rosol cannot be worst in anything. He is a God.

Nole nas better mental strength than Nadal now, easily.

Dimitrov does not have the worst physical stamina.

no way
look at Nadal in his close matches in recent weeks.
he won against Dmitrov partially due to fitness but also mental strength
beat Del Potro and Gulbis at Indian Wells not because of great play so much as fitness and mental strength
at the crux of it Nadal will rarely get down on himself. I think basing it on the Monte Carlo we could say otherwise, but truth be told irrelvant beyond his mentality there, his game was MIA, incredibly messy by his standards

Nadal's head is on his shoulders better than anyone on tour

<3 Roger Federer <3 David Ferrer <3 Juan Martin Del Potro <3 Ernest Gulbis <3

------------------------ <3 Richard Gasquet <3

Rafael Nadal

I agree with the confusion Not by a long shot. It's not even that much worse than his forehand. Neither is outstanding, neither awful. He won matches in his prime mostly on mental toughness, and sadly when he faded as a player, that seemed to as well.

Serve :
Best = 1st Milos Raonic 2nd John Isner
Worst = 1st Olivier Rochus 2nd Jarkko Nieminen


Return of serve :
Best = Aggressive: Novak Djokovic/David Ferrer In Play: Andy Murray
Worst = Ivo Karlovic


Forehand :
Best = Rafael Nadal/Roger Federer
Worst = Benoit Paire


Backhand :
Best = Novak Djokovic or Andy Murray
Worst = Albert Montanes


Slice :
Best = Flavio Cipolla (A contender for worst in most everything else)
Worst = Santiago Giraldo

Volley :
Best = Radek Stepanek/Michael Llodra
Worst = Nicolas Almagro


Dropshot :
Best = Alexandr Dolgopolov/Jurgen Melzer
Worst = Lukas Rosol


Mental strengh :
Best = Novak Djokovic (Montanes 2009-2010)
Worst = Pablo Andujar/Nicolas Almagro/PH Mathieu/Victor H and T


Physical stamina :
Best = Rafael Nadal
Worst = Grigor Dimitrov

Re: best and worst player on the tour by area

but rosol did the best dropshop in the history of the sport!

justin bieber is not the best in history.
funk was better than rap.
techno not better than classic rock.

numbers are not everything.
