Wow, Berdych has a shockingly low number of supporters. Both he and Soderking are by far my faves. Del Po's tards have ruined him for me.

Del Potro (because he's better than Murray and I like his composure and presence on the tennis court).

Soderling (because he's better than Murray and smashed RN at RG).

Berdych (can return really well and moves incredibly well for his size).

Where is Tsonga? When 'on', Tsonga is one of the few guys who can win a slam.

Yeah, Tsonga, one of the guys with better volleys and touch at the net on tour, is a ballbasher

Blake's commitment to bashing the ball under any and all circumstances was unparalleled.

Yes, Tsonga has more variety than a naked ball basher. Maybe I'm lacking a basic definition of a 'ball basher'. Tsonga does have massive hits from the baseline though - which is where I was coming from.

Default Re: Who's your favorite Ball Basher?

Berdych, Tsonga, Cilic, Roddick, are not ballbashers. Soderling is questionable. He bashes, but he also does construct points and has/can produce quite a bit of spin on his shots although they appear very flat, so he's not a pure basher. But I'd pick him from the guys on this list.

Del Potro is more of an offensive grinder than anything else.

He does hit very hard, but he's not a ballbasher. He has brilliant touch at the net and volleys and charges the net whenever the opportunity presents itself. He's an attacking player, but with excellent variety, definitely not a ballbasher by any means.

Blake was a superb player on hardcourts at his best. Loved his match with Haas at the 2007 USO. That was tennis.
