Re: Current Top 100 by playing styles

What do you people mean by grinder?

For me Agassi is a grinder, someone who makes his opponents run from one side of the court to the other repeated times, with safe and powerful crosscourt shots, people who grind down their opponents with their powerful and safe shots, and not someone who uses his power to go for flashy risky winners.

I guess you mean something else by grinder.

I miss: Ivan Lendl, Korda, Novak, Bruguera, Rios, Kucera, Courier, Mantilla, Costa, Santoro and Ferreira.

Good luck to:

Gaudio, Murray, Florian Mayer, Chela, Nalbandian, Radek Stepanek, Volandri, Youzhny and Verdasco.

Re: Current Top 100 by playing styles

Nalbandian at his best on an indoor court may be almost an all court player, but his regular game, is something between a counterpuncher and an aggresive baseliner. Or an aggresive baseliner who can counterpunch very well.

I miss: Ivan Lendl, Korda, Novak, Bruguera, Rios, Kucera, Courier, Mantilla, Costa, Santoro and Ferreira.

Good luck to:

Gaudio, Murray, Florian Mayer, Chela, Nalbandian, Radek Stepanek, Volandri, Youzhny and Verdasco.

A grinder vs. an artistic player. Mantilla fits that category and Kavcic would today.

“ On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Current Top 100 by playing styles

TL, thought you'd appreciate an example.

“ On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Current Top 100 by playing styles

Something is wrong with your chart cause I am 100% sure Nishikori is Japanese.

The paste of the court really changed how players play these days.

Re: Current Top 100 by playing styles

grinder would be a term suited more to the counterpuncher... but with even less to hurt you with... more aligned with living of the low numbers in the unforced error column than anything else... dev varman i'd consider a grinder...

to the OP: top job

Re: Current Top 100 by playing styles

at the number of "all-court" playes in the list. federer is the only one who can truly be classified as an all-court player, meaning that he excels at every aspect of play. ok maybe youzhny can be called "all-court" when he's playing well. anyone below that can't really be called all-court player. what "all-court" really means is that those players don't have any facet of the game they excel at.

Radek Stepanek "an artist"

Raonic "future"

Mugdy Fish "all court"
