What's the point? You know that this is going to turn into a Federer worship thread. Just don't get them started on his forehand...

Juan Ignacio Chela
The Volandri serve

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

being the most spectacular can be a different thing to being the most talented

Many consider him boring.

The current greatness league of active players in order of achievements to date (a factual comparison rather than fan biased assessment):

Federer 17 GS, 6 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.
Nadal 14 GS, 27 Master Series, 1 Olympic Gold.
Djokovic 9 GS, 4 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.

Nadal shouldn't be an option here.

Re: who has the most spectacular game??

I voted for Blake. The explosion of pace with his forehand is sometimes hard to believe. He just rips the ball. Gasquet was close runner up.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

His game is pretty spectacular. The most spectacular passing shots on tour.
