Is it Gulbis?
If it's not a poll format, I will not dignify this thread with an answer.
For some reason your image won't load is it this one?
Gulbis is agressive and has huge shots but he is more "dumb-agressive". I would not consider that agression but brainless ballbashing.
A player that might qualify is tsonga. he not only has a huge FH but also likes to come to the net. fed is also still in the mix although he has shifted to more bashing from the baseline instead of going to the net which he used to do more.
That photo makes Rog look like he's carrying as much as junk in his trunk as Serena William :twisted:
The power of the still image people!
Who cares about Gulbis? He isn't like other people said, successful aggresive.
Roger is the only one you can count on not wanting to rally for 30 shots.
I remember when I started watching tennis in the summer of 07. I found out quickly how blessed I was to be watching tennis in the era of Nadal and Federer. Watching the both of them was what instantly connected me to this wonderful game. Anyways my point I am getting to is, one thing Federer did better than ANYONE, was end the point once the opponent left a ball short. The minute Federer had the ability to take a 1 or 2 foot position into the baseline, the point was in Federer's control.
You may say yeah, but all the pro's do this...they are pro's...
Federer was the most lethal, and he started every point thinking, when can I attack?
I cannot find a BETTER example than this one. Look at this defense to offense: http://youtu.be/pdcwbQa7S5E?t=29s or this http://youtu.be/pdcwbQa7S5E?t=19m23s
Monfils, Gulbis and definately Federer
Berdych has got to be up there.
:lol: Is there some other Monfils that i am not aware of?
I also dislike people omitting Gulbis because he isn't as good. The question was "who is the most agressive". I mean, if I was to ask "who is the fastest" would you say Monfils isn't faster than Federer because he doesn't win much with it?
Federer very often hits slices and stays behind. He also can be very passive on the return as well. I believe that Gulbis is more aggressive.
Guys like Raonic have to be mentioned as well. He attacks the net alot and if he has a FH, he goes for broke with it often, much more so than, say, Del Potro.
Raonic in his first year playing was Top 5 most aggressive for sure. He has however dialed it back in favour of less errors. TBH he probably should go for more.
I definitely miss Soderling
Berdman, Llordra, Tsonga
but I gotta say match after match it is Federer... he just makes it look elegant.
Compared to Becker or Pete.... no contest though
Jeff Tarrango's wife approves.
Federer. Hands down.
Tsonga. Blow a volley? Oh well, he's coming in again.
These questions are hard to answer. Because you could have a mug who would rank 727293947646th in the world that plays more aggressively than anyone on tour. But I can say for sure that it isn't Federer. The reason he's been so successful is because he can switch so beautifully from defense to offense. I'd say prime-Federer's defense is second only to Nadal in recent memory. He also has one of the smartest attacking games.
Michael Llodra. S&V every point.
If they had that playing style, they wouldn't be ranked that low. Top 200-150, at the bare minimum.
Let's be honest. I could throw my racquet, body, and head at every single ball coming my way and be called the most aggressive player ever. But I'd suck.
Dolgopolov? Or did he tune it down?
Federer! the magic answer to everything.
Just kidding. Guna say tsonga, berdych, gulbis, delpo before the wrist surgery, soderling even though hes out, blake even tho hes old now, gonzalez but he retired... are all agressive looking to end points fast. Isner and Raonic can play super agressive, but sometimes jush push from the baseline/ on return. Then theres net rushers like Stepanek, llodra, lopez. That is a different kind of agression too.
oh yea forgot him. dolgo plays really slap happy sometimes.
I don't know guys. If you take away the serve for a second and ask the players who has the biggest opportunity to just take time away from you on a consistent basis I am sure the answer would be Roger. Nadal, Djoko and Murray are all happy waiting 30 shots to win a point - Roger may do that now and again but he really doesn't want to.
roger and dolgo are two that stand out in my mind.
Murray or Simon
I've never seen her hit a slice.
This was going to be my answer.
I would say Almagro, even though I dont like him.
I dont understand how this is even under discussion, it's gonna be Berdych without a doubt.
The guy goes for broke every rally.
Karlovic, the only serve and volleyer left on the tour.
In all seriousness....
Federer is so aggressive that he makes Nadal play out of his mind.
Despite losing here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aSmDCHLJM70 this is arguably the best Nadal ever played on a hard court. He was absolutely crushing the ball. Turns around and plays Djoko in passive mode aka 40 shot rallies, what a joke.
But watch how Fed eats up EVERY BALL LEFT SHORT.
