Fed has a good ground game, a decent serve in pace and pretty good placement, so he holds pretty well.

Still, Karlovic has a better all around serve. Roddick's serve is pretty tame nowadays, but still quite good.

Commentators always talk about how great Dolgopolov's serve is, but it's very inconsistent imo.

They way it happened? so hard so fast and so low, you gotta be kidding me, average club players don't hit that shot.

Gasquet backhand-people are talking like it's the best in the world,but compares to Nole or Murray backhand is not even close to them.Del PO forehand maybe,after winning US open his forehand is not that hard and destructive but it is still among the best

Backhand is so overrated, most of the players on the men and women side go straight to the backhand, only a few players go to the forehand these days. I use to think the serve, but after watching alot of tennis its the backhand.

Plus i love forehands more

In a way, though, this emphasizes the importance of the shot in general. Most rallies in today's game are constructed around the backhand. Players often look to break down that shot or use it to open up the (righty) forehand or deuce side of the court. As such, its stability in today's game is made very important.

With guys like Djokovic and Murray showing up, players who are more concrete on both sides, we may begin to see a gradual change in the dynamics of the game, wherein differences between the two wings are mostly contextual.

Berdych forehand. Caused the top 4 trouble on a few occasions (Mainly Fed and Murray), but unless it's the perfect conditions for him, they can all cancel it out.

He didn't beat those players/caused them trouble due to his forehand, but rather his ability to generate power effortless with short compact swings and force them to be constantly on the defensive. Also his ability to return Federer's serve.

By commentators: Isner forehand
