Are you more a Nadal/Murray/Monfils person or a Gasquet/Djoko/Berdych person ?

Within the new generation there seem to be the defensive players who retrieve everything, and the offensive ones, going for broke more often. It will be interesting to see which group of guys dominates...
For me, a Nadal/Murray match perspective is as exciting as a good nap. Nadal and Monfils try to make up their game with a couple of crowd pleasing gestures but they are not shotmakers. What do you think ?

"I asked a bloke in the front row if he liked the serve-and-volley stuff," said Rafter. "He said he did but asked if he was going to get to see any rallies. 'Not today, mate,' I told him."

Well My faves in this list would be

Nadal
Monfils
Djoko
Murray

Remember offense wins games, defense wins championships

The ATP deserves a better class of player, and I'm gonna give it to 'em - Djoker

So you're more in the first group. Defense wins championships ? What about this guy called Sampras...

Its a play on words as this is what every basketball coach says.

There is no definite rule in tennis.

Interesting groupings. I like Gasquet/Djoko/Berdych, and dislike the others. So, I guess I fit the test. Monfils is entertaining, but his game is not to my liking.

I think Offense has won Federer 9 so far.

In fact I'd go so far as to say that's one of the dumbest things i've read - today anyway

It's not actually, Scoobs. "Defence wins championships" is a very common saying, and applicable to many sports.

I struggle to see it applying to tennis except on clay.

We're not talking about many sports we're talking about tennis and most majors in the last 25 years at least have been won by offense players. except clay.

defense does not win championships, its impossible to win if you dont score...but it is possible to win with shitty defense.
