Height correlates largely to limb length therefore height=power
Now shorter players can generate a lot of power with their feet set but its much harder for them when they can't get their whole body behind the shot
Best post in this thread. That's not to say there aren't shorter players with hard groundstrokes (like Davy, Agassi), but it's no doubt a factor. I don't think it's as huge of one as some people make it out to be though.
