For the delpo fans, I cut up some (high definition) footage from a 2009 US Open practice session.

I think at the time his forehand was the best in the game. More Federer-like (smooth) than Nadal-like (brutal). Even when he starts cranking it a few minutes in, it's a very smooth motion.

It's awesome! I dont get why people call his forehand ugly though.

Mostly because he's very tall he looks less elegant. It's not right, he strikes the ball beautifully.

He's probably one of the cleanest ball strikers out there IMO.
