Caught a match between del po and gulbis in LA - maybe a year or two ago (gulbis played great and won). Del po's groundstrokes were ok during this match - I've seen him hit harder but they were still decent. He definitely gets his weight behind fhs when he has time to set up. I did notice a big issue though (and it definitely could be related to his injury). His wrist/forearm does not seem to stretch/snap/whip the way most good players' do. This was especially apparent while serving. He could have a WAY bigger serve. Gulbis was a good contrast cause he was cracking the ball that night, you could really see the difference in wrist action. Gulbis def hit at least 10 mph faster with a lot of work on the ball.
