Yeah, Sampras and Nadal are good too, Agassi as well. Federer sucks big time, it's hilarious, the game makes it look like he is the mug of the week or something I am convinced Murray paid 2k or something, he's irrealistically good in the game. I took very long to finally beat him on expert.

I created a pro too, but he doesn't exactly play long rallies: Power 100 Serve 91 Forehand 89 Del Potro on steroids if you will. I initially created this player to face similar power players online, but I've grown to love playing with him actually, the game often frustrates me because of how slow it is and how hard it is to hit winners vs good players, my pro eliminates that problem

1-No, I don't play tennis. Used to at a purely recreational level, but not anymore. Too lazy I guess.

2-I definitely think I'd be an attacking player, aggressive from the baseline, looking to dictate and finish points off. That's the kind of tennis I enjoy most so I'd like to believe that's how I would play
I took my first pro through career, and i didn't really like him, so after i unlocked the 50,000 fast builder thing, i deleted him and created a 100 power pro, a serve and Volleyer, Ultra defensive player and an all rounder. I like playing with my all roudner the most.

With Murray, i struggle against him with most players, but with my 100 power pro, i destroy him. I used him in my first match against Murray on expert and beat him 6-0,6-2

I play a little. My game is very comparable to Tsonga's haha

It took me a couple of seconds to realize you were talking about video game tennis, and then I was like "Ohhhhh!"

I see. I can beat anyone with my all power pro really My main problem with TS4 is that it generally favors defense/pushing as it's very hard to hit a winner with normal players, but it's almost impossible to beat a power player no matter the difference in skill ie George (The Bulldog) double bagelled me once with Nadal vs Djokovic, in the next match I switched to my power pro (and he stayed with Nadal) and routined him

Awesome that your game is comparable to Tsonga. I'm sure your BH and ROS are better tho

Re: Q&A With Mark Lenders.

Do you find TS4 easy on expert? In career mode, how often do you lose and at what stage?

This is me In comparison to others i play with. Good serve, good volleys, good forehand, bad back-hand, bad ROS. I play aggressively too.

Sounds like Tsonga doesn't it

Although, i don't think my ROS is as weak at my level as Tsonga's at his.


Question:

If only one of your favourites could win a slam in the future. Which one would you want it to be?

It's generally easy, yes, except against Murray, who can I only easily beat with my pro.

Yup, you do sound like Tsonga


That's a very tough question, I'd go for Ancic but that'd be cheating since he's retired unfortunately. I'd probably go with Tsonga, I feel he deserves a Slam more than any other Slamless player at the moment due to how entertaining his game is and the way he plays explosive, risky tennis in this era where high percentage tennis rules.

I know this is Lenders' question thread, but what surface do you play on and what standard?

It's ok. I don't mind, actually encourage the thread to have as informal a tone as possible and posters to be plesant and get to know each other

Hard, and okay. I sometimes play on the Park with mates which is poor , and play at a small club which the surface is decent but quite slow. I don't get coaching or anything, we just play matches.

Re: Q&A With Mark Lenders.

Let's ask something. I'm kinda bored and want to chat.

Mr. Lenders, you probably answered it before, but if not, I'd like to know... Why did you choose the japanese flag in your mtf profile?

Ah, appeal moderation? Wanna know what appeal moderation did to me?
LOOK AT ME!
LOOK AT ME, BOY! THESE ARE THE SCARS OF APPEAL MODERATION!
Take a good long stare, you know you want to.
You're not even man enough to look at my face.

Appeal moderation isn't pretty, you have to watch your friends go to dust.
Appeal moderation is always hungry for your soul and sweet emotions.


First and once godly-worhispped appeal moderator.

Because the username I selected - Mark Lenders - is a character of a Japanese anime/manga series - Captain Tsubasa. Just seemed fitting to use the Japanese flag, especially as I'm a fan of a lot of things Japanese although unfortunately I've never been to Japan.

Also, it's Friday nights, there's no shortage of places you could go to fight that boredom

Oh, I will... I should be at my friend's house in 30 minutes.

So... I'd be there in 2 hours.

Re: Q&A With Mark Lenders.

Do you think I can go all the way in PopCon? Or am I not at the required standard?

You have what it takes. You are nice and you post a lot in a lot of chat threads - since it's held in NT, the contest is obviously biased towards chat thread juggernauts. The problem for you might be that there are a few posters with similar characteristics who might have been around for longer and they might edge you.

I see you're not the most punctual guy around

Re: Q&A With Mark Lenders.

If I donate a win to you on TS4, would you change from abstaining to voting for me in the QF?
