nadal clearly has the worst serve by far! nadal's backhand is poor sometimes, but federer's backhand is the worst! all 4 have great forehands but federer's forehand when its on is the most devastating shot in tennis, he can hit with pace, spin, angles, control, precision etc! nadal has the 2nd best forehand with its massive topspin, angles, and recently more pace, very good control and good accuracy!

serve:
1)federer
2)djokovic
3)murray

I'd say Nadal is the least likely to serve a double-fault on a crucial point.

Serve
Murray(on fast hard), Nadal on clay or slow hard

movement
murray on hard
nadal on everything else


Love how people forget how good Federer's serve used to be before this year. Not to mention his movement. Sure maybe he was not as fast as Nadal but his anticipation on court was at another level. At his peak his movement used to look like he was gliding around the court. One moment he would be at one end of the court, a blink of an eye later he is on the other side hitting a ball back that most would think he can't even get to.

Anyways I just realized this is totally off topic as the title does not even ask for movement. It just asks for serve and groundstrokes.

Serve

1 Fed
2 Djokovic
3 Murray
4 Nadal (I feel Nadal even though he does not have a great serve and agressive returners like nalbandian and murray can really punish it, he back up his serve very well with his amazing groundstrokes.)



Groundstrokes

1 Nadal
2 Federer (well he would not be #2 right now with his current error-fest mode but at his peak)
3 Djokovic (groundies can be extremely good when he is on)
4 Murray (way too defensive at times, very little risk so I feel that if someone like Djokovic or Federer's game is ON their groundies are better. Sure Murray can be very good with his groundstrokes aggressively but that doesn't mean much coz so can someone like Monfils. But there is a reason why they play defensive with low risk most of the time.)

Nadal at peak for sure followed by Federror at his peak.
I'd say Nadal is the least likely to serve a double-fault on a crucial point.
Nadal is mentally something else for sure. But then I remember the days when Federror didn't use to double fault at all ever.

Who has da best serve/groundstrokes of the top 4?
Instead of making four hundred million threads about why you love Nadal, do us a favour and attend a few more English classes.
If you really wanted to know, you would use the search option since there are countless other threads on this very matter.

i think its obvious even to rafa fans like myself that his serve is delivered at half rat power. and he doesnt go for lines, he is too conservative! he has to improve that serve dramatically to use when he is 26 or 27 yrs!

Yep, it's not like he ever did that twice in the fourth set of a Wimbledon final on the brink of victory is it...

that was an exception, he is generally solid. that match was the biggest pressure u can get esp. after losing a close one last year.
