Nothing.
Net play? You should try watching Murray with your eyes open. If you are still having problems then try specsavers. Speed? No way. Murray has a better balance between speed and positional sense which makes him an overall better mover.

Murray's net skills are streets ahead of Fakervic.

Re: Does Murray have most similar gamestyle to Nole?

Murray and Djokovice are similar to a certain extent but are actually quite different players. Murray is a genius in playing smart tennis when his mind functions normally whereas Djokovic is just not bad in this aspect. Murray has a lot more variety than Djokovic who's best shots are groundstrokes. Murray plays to disrupt opponent's rythem and is more defensive than djokovic.

There are slightly similar but in my eyes Djokovic is a better version of Davydenko and Nalbandian. He is not as attacking as these guys but he is still an aggressive player. He moves and serves better than these guys though.

Re: Does Murray have most similar gamestyle to Nole?

When Murray is playing aggressive tennis then it's a little similar although the strengths on each side are different. Murray has a better backhand, Djokovic has a better forehand. But they can play similar styles in that way from the baseline. Djokovic is just better at that play than Murray on most occasions.

Murray likes to play with different paces and switches up his style a lot more than Djokovic does though. He uses the slice more, he uses drop shots a lot etc whereas Djokovic is a baseline player for thhe most part. Djokovic's style works for him fantastically though and Murrays can falter. But when both are at their best they match up pretty well.

MURRAY. DJOKOVIC

Tipsarevic
Much better serve
Worse forehand
Slightly worse backhand
Better volleys
Better endurance
But enormous choking

Murray has the odd combo of having a better serve and volley but more comfortable with defense/counterpunching. Djokovic is more of an aggressive baseliner, but his flexibility helps him both with retrieving and at the net.

But yeah, they are both backhand oriented pusher/basher/retriever superhybrids of the future.

Actually, they all have mini-mes:
Federer-Dimitrov
Nadal-Monfils
Murray-Simon
Nole-Troicki
This made me lol.

Yea, and Stepanek S&V's a lot, hence his gamestyle is the most similar to Sampras.
