Or + Wawrinka's OHBH?
Fed has owned Wawrinka's OHBH for years.

The only negative thing to be said about Fed's backhand is that it didn't hold up against Nadal's FH on slow surfaces. Wawrinka's has held up even worse. Fed's has been proven to be the better backhand in the only lab that matters.

Poisoned Slice

Always changes.

The only answer that doesn't change is having Stefan Edberg backhand. One of the first memories/shots of tennis that I still have a clear picture of in my mind. Kind of like when I think of slice, I think of Steffi Graf.

Djokovic with Ivo Karlovic's serve would be unbeatable machine.
Nope. To have a quality serve like Ivo, Nole has to be 6 feet 10 inches tall. At this height his movement and court coverage are his achilles heel.

Wawrinka's backhand is much better than Fed's at dealing with Nadal - the obstacle in the way of having 5 AO and 5 RG. Fed + Wawrinka's backhand would have 25+ slams.
