    One thing that I disagree with is Nadal's forehand being a 10/10, while Federer's is only a 9/10. On clay yes, but not on grass and hard courts.

    yea exactly, and nadals backhand being 9/10, i mean he hits amazing passing shots on the run with it, but it is not as good as nalbandians or safins....

    You're not gonna find someone in the world you agree with completely on everything. Docking a point on Federer's forehand for not consistently dominating Nadal on clay with it? Why not deduct a point from everything Rafa does for not being able to dominant Federer on grass, and another 5 points for not consistently winning non-clay court slams with all parts of his game?

    They need to update Ferrer's ratings. It's completely off. Good find nonetheless.

    I disagree with the analysis of Roddick's forehand. When he gets himself into position, which he is pretty good at doing with his quick footwork, he can nail that forehand down-the-line or inside-out. Take note of how much the other guy has to run the next time you watch a Roddick match. Roddick's backhand is also underrated. It used to be awful, but he has gotten more pop on it and he can get it down-the-line now. It's a solid shot. Nothing amazing, but it's not a liability.

    I've seen that site before. its pretty good most of the time IMO, but it doesn't have many players, and has some things most people would disagree with. The Nadal fh v. Fed fh issue is a perfect example. I'm afraid can't fully respect the ratings of a site that features information so contarary to the opinions of most experts.

    There used to be frequent match reports earlier on the site but i guess it is tough for a single person to keep updating all the pages on a regular basis. Apart from the match reports there were also some fun stuff like prediction contests for grand slams and other tournaments.

    I think if Roddick's forehand is a 6, his volleys shouldn't. And his court coverage should be higher than 5.

    Federer's net game should be lower than a 9..

    And I like how Hewitt's link just went back to the Federer page. (In the Men's Open Era part)

    They pretty much destroy Stepanek's strokes, which I found funny.

    I just looked at the Belgians:

    Rochus gets a LOT of points, certainly on his forehand and backhand: 8. Compared to the rest he gets a lot...

    Malisse gets A 6 on his SERVE??? What the hell. This guy hits like 10 aces each match or somewhat and only gets a 6???

    Agree with the gaudiobackhand-comment... Should be more... Certainly if Nadal gets a 10

    Awesome site thank you for sharing this.

    While no site is perfect especially one based on opinion this site still gives a fairly(if not spot on) accurate description on most of the top players on tour right now. I noticed some of the scouting reports were several years old while others were very recent so please take that into account when you are questioning some of the ratings given to the players.

    It's a really great site, but seems a little out of date. As he has been back firmly in the top 10 for some time now. But still, the best tennis analysis I've seen on the web.
