Here's a good blog post on the Del Potro style swing.

I was attempting a sardonic attack on what passes for conventional wisdom on these forums. I'm not calling his strokes girly. I don't think they're WTA style at all. If you read my full post, you'll see I noted Delpo's upper body rotation and modern finish on his forehand.
I was mocking all the MTM folks who say extension on groundstrokes doesn't happen on the ATP, and it's an outmoded approach that still hangs on, on the WTA side.
