Are they heavier than Murray's?

I've generally thought Novak to be more of the aggressor of the two, with Murray a bit more passive (though they both are great defensive players). However, when Andy really goes for it, it seems his groundstrokes, and especially forehand, are more penetrative...? Slapshot almost.

Novak's forehands (and backhands) seemed to be laced with a bit more topspin so that's why they seem to bounce a bit higher but are less penetrating compared to Andy's when Andy really goes for it.

Or am I imagining this because Murray usually plays more passively?

Novak has weightier balls than Murray. This allows him to get more penetration. He is also able to do more with his balls than Murray, which means he can aim his shots in any place he wishes.

Judging by the way Murray kept sagging down after points, you can tell that Murray's balls are very heavy.

That seems right to me, I agree.

why? Mods should really relax a bit. I BS often because I'm bored plus Rog/Fafa ***** need to be addressed properly, but I love this sport. Not sure what the OP did.

Novak does have huge balls.

Rog has a vag!na and she knows it. Rafito can't realize what he has as he is not too bright (he can't see the difference between a pee pee and that v.gina thingy) .

Nole seems to have more pace and top spin, but i think Murray's shots penetrate more when he goes after them.

The result of how they produce their power. Nole has faster racquet head speed, while Murray is the stronger of the two and uses a heavier racquet with less racquet head speed.

I find it rather sad that so many forumers focus on the star players' genitals in this thread instead of just discussing the pace and spin of their strokes.

This picture tells me that Djokovic spends less time at the gym, which is why he won more slams.

I don't think Andy does a lot of penetrating with his balls, certainly not more than Novak in any case.

As to Novak's balls, as heavy as they are, Federer is always smacking them around. Sometimes (ie that memorable night they had together in Shanghai last year), it's almost as if Novak lets Fed smack his balls around.

Maybe it's because Fed is a wealthy old man and Novak is not entirely satisfied (by his career so far).

Novak's balls are indeed heavier than Murray's, but Murray is very talented at punching Novak's balls.

Yes - in fact I think Andy has the most penetrating balls of both wings of the big 4. That is, when he goes for it, which is seldom, which is why Novak's ball are heavier and hairier.

I noticed that as well. I think Novak's shots look a bit less penatrative than they actually are, maybe because of the topspin, maybe because of his technique. He doesn't really slap the shots like Federer does. I don't know, they both hit it pretty hard but Murray does it with less spin.

It all depends, the more shots Novak releases the lighter his balls become.

Novak does have a tendency to slap his balls around from time to time (according to Rog at least - US Open 2011).

Depends on where they are.

Leo Federer will have heavier balls than Nole's and Murrya's combined if Leo lives on Jupiter and Nole and Murrya live in the International Space Station.

The only real data we have is that Federer's balls are smaller than Nadal's. The rest is just speculation.

Although heaviness doesn't matter that much. It's potency.

Fed children count vs Nole and Rafa count:
4-0
4-1
