Now? Soderling.

Since coming back Del Potro hasn't seemed to have the usual power he's had. Tsonga and Berdych both have good power but they both rely on other aspects of their game too to back up that power and Cilic doesn't seem to have as much power as the others.

Is this even serious question? Delpo is hitting the ball harder than anyone in history- consistently, maybe Gonzalez or Monfils hit once, twice harder FH, but consistently Delpo is level above rest, than Soderling, Berdych, than maybe Gulbis, Tsonga.

Delpo is sh't atm, he cant be considered because its not effective against anyone decent thesedays.

His ballbashing not bothering many, it did make Simon look better counterpuncher than Murray. :lol:

And Simon did say himself that he is worse version of Murray...

Gilles took two sets of Roger in their only GS meeting. Andy has yet to do that against Fed.

Andrey Golubev. If you added brainless ball-basher then it would be Andrey Golubev.

When they're all on form, it has to be Delpo followed closely by Soderling. Delpo takes hitting the ball hard to a whole new level never before seen in Tennis, when he's doing that consistently it's practically impossible to deal with, even for the best of the best.

Yup, some of his shots in the Nadal match were scary, if he could hit them consistently, that would really be something :D

Easy. Soderling. Just have to look into his matches with the other power-hitters. Then he is the guy that runs the show no matter if it's Tsonga, Berdych, Del Potro.

He isn't all forehand either but hits his BH with as much force when he likes. And just because he is sick doesn't mean he fell off the earth. Remember how Soderling himself destroyed Simon last time they played in RG with his power-hitting. Something Delpo failed with big time yesterday on a surface slightly faster.

"Il m'a cassé la gueule (He demolished me)." – what Simon said after that match. :hug: Of course, he was less comfortable retrieving missiles on clay as opposed to hard courts, but still... That was some scary stuff from Soderling.

Del Potro even now, no matter if he is not 100 %. Anyone who voted for Söderling, you need to check out some Söderling-Del Potro matches.

The ones voting Tsonga cannot have seen his matches against Soderling. Robin is constantly the one dictating play because of his power on both sides, which is also why Tsonga has such an awful record against him with no wins.

It's between Del Potro and Soderling if we talk consistent, forehand and backhand power-hitting.

nadal. he hits his aesthetically hideous groundstrokes as hard as he possibly can on nearly every single shot.

he has to bash the ball as hard as he possibly can to get the topspin he gets, and boy does it look UGLY.

This, it seems like Soderling is the boy and Delpo is man when they play in term of raw power.

Nadal has the most power behind his shots. The tornado of spin and drive make them hard for any player to hit back. Ask federer

i'd usually agree, but given how he played yesterday, i'm not so sure.

i still think del potro's sudden change in power may have earned him a US Open title, but it's also systematically destroying his wrists and shoulder.
