Re: Tsonga : Safin Version 6.0

Tsonga's FH is way better.

Re: Tsonga : Safin Version 6.0

Not hard to realise especially since everyone on tv keeps hammering about how his backhand is Safin like.

I also read this comparison in French newspaper article.

Amélie Mauresmo
Australian Open & Wimbledon Champion (2006)

YEC Champ (2005)
"I was ready to die on the court today."
Habs rule
Marat Safin|Juan Carlos Ferrero|Roger Federer|Richard Gasquet
Gaël Monfils|Sébastien Grosjean|Fabrice Santoro|Nestor|Dancevic|Polansky

Re: Tsonga : Safin Version 6.0

Tsong's FH is more powerful than BH but the BH hits less errors. Agassi has the same feature

Re: Tsonga : Safin Version 6.0

Nope. Been noticed before (at least by me) during the Nadal match. Especially noticeable for those who remember the Safin of 2000, and the flashes of said fellow that occasionally come through at Paris Bercy and Aussie Open.

<---"Espera. ¿Dónde están?"

Always on the lookout for a great tennis match.

Re: Tsonga : Safin Version 6.0

Only in the way he sets up his groundstrokes. Otherwise, I don't see the comparison
