all the time

I've emulated serves of something like 6 players already

Tsonga one suited good for me

I use a more Almagro like forehand sometimes now. Mix it in

I have a "Federesque" one handed backhand, actually years away from his consistency, but I've tried to emulate him as much as I could. He have such a clean and elegant style that is almost like watching a tennis training video every time he plays. Even if he doesn't win, still you can learn a lot from his style.
I also enjoy watching Soderling and Feliciano Lopez, and Mardy Fish.

Have you experienced anything like this?

I personally have not experienced this. My strokes come from A LOT of practice and some amount of instruction. However, I do love watching the pros and I certainly try to mimic some of their shots... especially volleys.

Trying to incorporate the Tipsy moving forehand. I can do it, court coverage and footwork is one of my strenghts. I am just trying to make contact with the ball in the same zone that Tipsy does on that running forehand.
