Stepanek, Nadal, Isner, Federer, Cilic, Llodra, Almagro, Tipsarevic, Wawrinka, Djokovic, Tsonga - all different styles
so it does exist and more than before. sorry
They're all baseliners.
And in the end, the same 4-5 get to pretty much every GS SF. The fact that 2 or 3 players are a little more aggressive than others doesn't mean there's space for diversity.
if they did stop at that time, Federer would have demolished those old records even faster and more thoroughly..
maybe accomplishing a couple of CYGS on the way
The idea was that less development favours skill over power and heavy topspin, also smaller sweet spot would favour Fed as he has used one of the smallest raquet heads over the years...
Compared to today's pushers and counterattackers, ok.
But you can't predict how players today would play if they didn't begin their careers with luxilon strings, for instance.
