Question Whose groundstrokes would you like to have?

Hi!
I'm new here and I must say that posters on this board are well informed and fun!
I would like to know your opinion, among the ATP players whose groundstokes would like to have as part of your game (if you're a tennis player)?
Thanks!

I am a player, and I wish the balls came off my Babolat Pure Drive strings the way they do off Carlos Moya's Prue Drive.......hehehehe.

I really like the look of effortless type power he produces.

I would like to have the forehand of Malisse and the backhand of Hewitt or Keurten.

Good luck to Olivier Rochus, Xavier Malisse, Christophe Rochus, Dick Norman, Kristof Vliegen, Gilles Elseneer

Also good luck to Lleyton Hewitt, Andy Roddick, Thomas Enqvist, JM Gambill, Raemon Sluiter, James Blake, Gaston Gaudio, Marcelo Rios

Tommy Haas's. They look so great as well as being powerful and accurate.

I'm with hitman on Ferrero's forehand and Guga's back hand

However if I can only pick on player I think I would go with Hewitt.

Frankly I think Safin at his best, has nice groundstrokes - more powerful..

BUt Hewitt is more consistent, he rarely misses, no matter how high the stakes are.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

I think Ferrero's are the best in terms of power and consistancy.

Hewitt is maybe #2.

ON a bad day Ferrero tends to shank his forehand, and esp. backhand more though.

Hewitt is more consistent, IMO, even when under a good deal of pressure.

Though Ferrero is more powerful, esp on the forehand side.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.
