- Not much variety but brutally effective - hit with power from one side to the other, rinse, repeat? WTA has already been taken over by this style of play.
There are more and more players like this. Soderling, Berdych, Gulbis and obviously Del Potro. Roger has held this type of player off for several years but he is pushing 30 now, his reflexes aren't what they were and this is the second time in three slams that he has been taken out by a power hitter.
Are we seeing the unstoppable rise of the unidimensional ballbasher and, if so, is this a good thing for the men's tour?
I hope tennis doesn´t go the way of basketball, where you mostly have to be a freak to make the big teams. If S&V comes back and points are only 2-3 shots, the sport will return to 1990s low point of boredom.
Pitty we can´t clone Fred... wait, that's suddenly given me an idea....
