    Interesting article.

    I've recently thought that if Nadal and Federer could mate and give birth to a man-child, it would be Djokovic. Djokovic has a similar defensive profile of Nadal, in terms of speed, court coverage, and counter-puncher style but also some of the variety and offensive game of Federer. He has a two-handed backhand like Nadal, but is right-handed, like Fed. His forehand is heavy on top-spin, but not as much as Nadal, but seemingly more so than Federer.

    Djokovic doesn't hit a forehand as heavy as Fed. Djokovic is his own thing to my mind, although he does, when on, combine hard consistent strokes a la nadal with a more attacking game a la fed, and i'd not thought about that before, so thanks.
