suffice to say however, tactically... women's tennis revolves around one main factor...

1st strike...

that is essentially it...

and... the good thing about the manual is that it doesnt hide this fact but is open about it... its not hard to build a top 10 WTA player... and ATP top 200 player - different story - 17 instead of 1 dimension...

I don't understand what changed - how we went from a Navratilova who serve-volleyed nearly every point as a fixed tactic but could mix it up and for whom understanding how to exploit weaknesses was a big part of her game, to Graf, who stayed back but understood how to work a point, gain the upper hand with rallying forehands and sliced backhands until the opening was created, then going big with the forehand into it, to current women players.

For the current women players it's largely about hitting big, hitting bigger than your opponent, and hitting big first. When both do it well it can be impressive but most of the time it just produces scrappy, ugly, UEfest tennis. With the decline of Mauresmo and the retirement of Henin I definitely find womens tennis inferior in terms of entertainment value compared to mens tennis by a long way.

Krajicek, Medvedev, Labadze, Tipsarevic and Gimmelstob for ATP / WTA Tour Relations.

The people deserve to know the truth.

There are others, well Marcelo Rios is another one who stated the obvious on this topic.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

yeah... it kind of begs the question where does it go from here...? who can tell...

and... as the clasic MTF quip goes... who really gives two f**ks...?

for me, looking back... seles was the first high percentage 1st strike big hitter from the basline and within... i think coaches spotted that and went with it... but, no one has ever done it consistant ever match since her... but, with limited talent.. you can score a few rounds in a grand slam if you give 6 years of training to it...

one thing is for sure tho scoobs... someone who can rule the forecourt and control the power, like mauresmo, will dominate...

but... women are scared of the net... it is foreign and should be kept away from... there is also a fear of an open faced volley... such a thing only exists in doubles now...

like mens singles...

mug era... mens and womens...

Those people all deserve a fine for their stupid, immature and insulting comments about the WTA. Shame on them!

Re: Labadze: "Women should only open their mouth in bedroom"

Labadze is the "Caucasian pimp".

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".
