Spin generation - tennis

Do you know how much spin you can generate in your serves and groundstrokes? Do you know how much spin are able to generate players like Federer, Nadal or Djokovic? Is it better to use high or low spin rates? What is the average ball spin rate of a professional player's topspin forehand when rallying in a tour-level tennis match? How topspin is created? Is spin generation influenced by today's extreme grips?

Does it automatically mean that player with extreme forehand western grip will play with higher spin rate than a player with eastern grip?

How is possible that Roger Federer is able to generate higher spin rates in his forehand with eastern grip and plays with higher spin rates in average comparing to Andy Murray, Tomas Berdych (both of them are using semi-western forehand grip) or Kei Nishikori and Kohlschreiber (western forehand grip)?

These and other questions will be answered by SwingAnalyst.

What is the position of your racket before, in the contact point and right after the contact?
