Ferrer seems to have very similar strokes to Djokovic but more compact and so plays closer in to the baseline which he should as he is much smaller. And Ferrer also moves faster which he also has to due to his lack of size. Ferrer basically is a mini version of Djokovic at Ferrer's peak. Thoughts?

Not even close to me. Djokos backhand is leagues better in every way. This allows him to cover the court better because he doesn't have to camp in the bh corner like ferrer did to compensate.

No. He's more of the Hewitt/Coria/Chang type. No major aggressive weapons, but top-tier conditioning, defensive ability, great return, and competitive spirit.

Djokovic can blast anyone off the court from the baseline. Never seen Ferrer do that.

Not quite.

Djok has nice extension on his shots. Murray and Ferrer both hit a lot closer to the body and both of them kinda hit a baseball swing on their BH.
Ferrer’s backhand looks more normal than Murray’s though.

I’d say Ferrer’s backhand is more like Djokovic’s than Murray’s.

No Nishikori is...if he had that extra 3-4 inches in height, in terms of raw talent he is right up there
