FH. Absolutely not. It's not Nalbandian 'obviously'! Safin's FH has a lot more power and is more consistent; It only became a poor shot after the injury he sustained in 2005 and he couldn't hit with as much power. Safin was not dire at the net. He just played a baseline orientated game. Safin's anticipation exceeds Nalbandian's at the net, and has made some of the most outrageous volley's I've ever seen. You clearly haven't watched Safin if you believe he was poor at the net. Remember we are talking pre 2005 here before he became useless. And no. I am not repeating my categories; Net game and volleys are two seperate things (much like foot speed and footwork and Improv & touch, serve and service game). Net game is the package - approach/technique & execution. Not known for speed? Safin was one of the fastest guys around, even though he was big. Indoor is not a surface; It's merely a condition.
