Groundstrokes combo as in both forehand and backhand. Del Potro has a killer forehand but relatively much weaker backhand. While Stan's forehand and backhand are on par both being very good. If you had only one choice whose ground strokes combo would you choose to win more matches on tour?

Delpo had to completely change his BH approach and technique due to recurring injuries and surgeries while Stan didn't so... comparison a little unfair.

But was his backhand much better prior? Also Stan has had surgery on his knees.
He doesn't play his strokes with his knees.

Yes, Delpo's BH/FH combo was brutal in 2009. There is zero doubt in my mind that he'd have been part of a Big 5 without these awful injuries. He had it all: confidence, ambition, no fear and huge talent.
