BTW, who was the last RG champion with few or zero topspin on his shots, Yevgeny, Andre?
A tennis question from big Fonsie. This is scary
Actually you have to do the best you can with your particular style. Make sure you are ready to be moving from the first point. If you can't move well on clay, then that's a problem.
The only thing I can suggest is play your usual style, but maybe take the pace off the odd shot, try and not to give them too much rhythm. If you hit a good hard shot, and then he hits a high one with no speed, then move forward and make the volley. If you are going to volley make them count.
