1st serve - Bautista-Agut
2nd serve - Murray
Forehand - Gulbis
Backhand - Lopez
Volleys - Ferrer (tough one for me as no one volleys these days)
Movement - Karlovic
Mentality - Fognini

Would you really say Djokovic was the worst volleyer in the top 30 BS?

Djokovic has awful smashes but his volleys are decent

1st Serve -Simon Giles
2nd Serve - Andy Murray
Forehand -  Giraldo, Santiago [ difficult to say a player weak in this area]
Backhand -  Jeremy Chardy[if only he had a decent backhand he would have been a top 10 player]
Movement - Milos Roanic [even Karlovic can move better than him]
Mentality - Nicolas Almagro [nobody beats the Mugro in this department, may be Gulbis will come closer].
Smash/Overhead - Djoko [something Becker should and could work on]
Volley - Daveed Ferrer [he is actually not worst but certainly lacks in this department]

Variety -  Karlovic [Should I say anymore]
Stamina - Goffin [Who can forget the bagel dished to Dimitrov and then going down tamely]
Lack of Work ethic - Bernard Tomic [wasted talent]

Strongly disagree IC re Goffin stamina. He won back to back 5 setters at FO'12 when he wasn't as bulked up.
But finally someone agrees on Tomic!

Funny enough. Looking at Nadal and Federer's forehands, I'd say they both miss the sweet spot more often than not. A bit like Steffi Graf's late forehand vs Ivanovic's I suspect if you transplanted their forehands onto a less gifted player's game... You don't have an altogether very good forehand... Yes I'm talking about Verdasco
