Which Top Ten Player Do You Most Resemble?

There's a nice diversity of styles in the top ten right now. For those of you who play: which player's game is the most similar to yours, and how? (You may vote for more than one if you feel it is a tie... )

Hewitt

No real weapon...but fight like hell. Reasonably consistent off both wings...and trying to develop my serve.


I love my girls.

I dont resemble any top ten player.

Re: Which Top Ten Player Do You Most Resemble?

I'm most like Andre, I think. Some of that is emulation, but part of it is just coincidence. I don't like to back up (even when I should, lol), and I have a short backswing. I'm uncomfortable if I'm forced back behind the baseline. My serve is consistent but not spectacular -- my ball toss is not very high and my strength comes mainly from my legs.

One difference is that I slice the ball more often, though, and not only as a defensive shot.

Oh, and also, I'm 1/142893754th as talented.

that's awesome that you have a serve and volley game.

I have been trying to do that more (it's fun when it works!), but it definitely takes a lot of practice. I usually do it when I'm up 40-0. It's hard when your serve is not much of a weapon.

I play serve and volley, but I wouldent call myself a pure 'serve and volleyer'. More of an all court player.
