At least measure all of the top 200, focusing mainly on clay-courters. I still wanna see RPM data on Andreev forehand. I reckon that wipes Nadal's forehand.

And take an average of forehand AND backhand topspin, cuz guess what - u ain't gonna get forehands 100% of the time.

Nada's backhand lets him down bigtime on spin production.
Well usually once Nadal can hit a solid forehand, he can dictate the points and hit ALL forehands for the rest of the rally. So he IS able to hit consistently heavy balls.

I agree with you about Andreev, Verdasco also gets huge topspin on his forehand when he wants to.
