I say Tsonga although there are also guys like Gonzalez, Blake, Korolev, Berdych, Tursunov, Verdasco and Federer etc.

Surely Gonzalez's forehand is the most powerful on the tour? (when it's on)

Baggy from what I've seen lately. His groundstrokes have an unreal speed.

Gonzo is on his way down now...but he still packs a punch.

I'd say its between Tsonga and Tursunov now....

That's a good point. When Baggy gets a chance to rip one its a damn laser. Hard and flat. Great call!

I would Tsonga's forehand cross-court on both side (watch his encounter wiv dudi sela). His backhand's a bit weak though.

Anyways I see DelPo relly strong hitting the ball.

Johansson used to have an absolute monster forehand. In fact, all Swedish players except for Edberg had massive forehands.

T'songa as the most physically powerful, Federer for the most influential. He got a whole team of linesman replaced at a tournie!

Correct. Pim Pim, Tomas Enquist, Magnus Larson, Magnus Gustafson etc.

I remember a match between Enquist and Federer (Indian Wells I think) where Federer's forehand looked like WTA slowmo compared to Enquist's ballistic missiles.

However I would put on top Mark Philippoussis's overwhelming forehand. That thing was scary, out of this planet - monstrous speed and heavy topspin too.
