Which pair of players on tour have the most contrasting playing styles? Is it all serves vs baseline bashers? one dimension vs all rouder? Or is two handed backhands vs onehanded backhands (
)? or something else?
Also, what do constrasting playing styles mean for rivalries? are they entailments? Have all the great rivalries past and present been based on two contrasting styles of players?
A series of questions inspired by a certain program i was watching. An old aussie program that basically said that Hewitt and Federer had the most constrasting playing styles and was a great rivalry. Obviously, years later, many would diasgree with this view (or do you?). Now, we see FEDAL as the main rivalry on court, and we tend to see it as two constrasting styles. and then i think of Sampras/agassi, Borg/mcenroe, again two contrasting styles. jus basically where my questions come from.
what's your view?
