cross-court fh - Nadal
down the line fh - Federer/Nadal
cross-court bh - Nalbandian
down the line bh - Djokovic/Federer
volley (drop volley, half volley, overhead smatch)- Federer
drop shot - Nadal
lob - Santoro

Others opinions?

Hewitt for lob.

Roddick doesn't necessary have the best serve.

Coria has good drop shots.

Nadal's FH DTL isn't that great IMO. Usually he hits it when his opponents don't expect it and that's how he gets winners.

Nadal's FH DTL is extinct, just as Tyrannosaurus rex

Federer's DTLer is sublime

Coria had great dropshots, Hewitt lobs and net approaches sometimes

No way Nadal has a better crosscourt FH then Federer. In fact, Fed's forehand is simply the deadliest shot in tennis period.

Why are you intemizing FH and BH avoiding volleys? ;)
I think these collations are difficult, very subjective. I noticed once that for example Davydenko and Hewitt have quite good backhand cross-court volleys but their BH volleys down the line practically don't exist.

Karlovic's serve may have a little bit better placement but part of the reason is his height. As much as i don't like Roddick, i will take Roddick's serve as 99% of players on tour have no idea how to deal with it..

Talking about the serve I think is necessary to specify 1st and 2nd serve. Karlovic has just decent 2nd serve IMO, Nalbandian serves 2nd serve better than the Croat, more efficiently.

Federer has the best DTL backhand? MTF keeps on giving.

Lleyton Hewitt:"Nadal has the best forehand in world when playing on clay".
Fed's FH looked pretty deadly today.
