1. Federer
2. Segura
3. Laver
4. Sampras
5. Lendl
6. Johnston
7. Nadal
Excellent list. I would put Borg's, Fred Perry's, John Newcombe, Nastase and Tilden up there also. I would think Borg's has to be in consideration for number one since he won on clay and grass with that stroke as the better of his two sides.

I'm glad you put Segura up there since a lot of people think it was the greatest single shot in the history of tennis.

I may move Lendl ahead of Sampras since it was a most consistent shot and they were close in pure power. Sampras' forehand was pretty awesome however.
