  4. Novak Djokovic:

    He has probably the best one?handed backhand on the tour. No question one of the best one?handed backhands that I have seen in tennis, very powerful and can create a lot of spin, a lot of rotation on the ball. Novak Djokovic can hit it flat down the line. Novak Djokovic can block the ball very well. Novak Djokovic has a short slice, long slice. Novak Djokovic has a lot of variety from that part of Novak Djokovic baseline game.

  5. Del Potro:

    Hopefully after my third surgery, the problem is almost fixed and I am here, playing tennis again, i'm still confident in my game and still looking forward to playing with the top guys in the same condition, not like (Indian Wells), when I couldn't hit my backhand at 100 per cent. Maybe in the future I will get that chance.
