G.O.A.T.
First player to beat Djokovic and Federer in the same tournament. Young Djokovic and Safin had quite similar stroke mechanics and explosive power.
"Take notes, young padawan. This is how you dominate everyone from the baseline"

His takeback was always quite big, but the actual swing is rather compact. As opposed to "true" WTA forehands like Söderling or Rosol.
His current forehand is definitely more inline with the ATP forehand philosophy of keeping your take back to the right side of the body. It was very interesting to see him corrected that.

In his early days that big takeback made him more error prone on that wing but also more powerful. He used to hit through the forehand harder with less margin for error than he does now.
