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'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. :lol:

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

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.

Henman.

I'm a serve/volleyer. It's funny though, because I don't like the serve/volleyers on tour. :confused:

I have no talent at all but my backhand is better than my forehand, so I choose Gaston :o

Hewitt. Even though my backhand isn't nearly as good as my forehand I'd say I scramble all over the place and hit groundies. I rely on my speed to get a lot of balls back. Oh, and I have a nice offensive/defensive lob. :angel::cool:

Gaudio- I can play superb at one moment and then play totally stupid shots the next- I also have trouble closing out sets and matches especially serving for them :tape:

Aside from being left handed I also hit with a one-handed backhand and it is better than my forehand. I also play primarily from the baseline but occassionally do make forrays into the net.

I am a hybrid of Karlovic groundstrokes, a Dementieva serve, Labadzes court speed, Chela volleys and a Malisse brain.

Nalbandían probably. Pretty good on all surfaces, good in inconsistency, great fighting spirit and plays from the baseline, yet tries to go to the net too.

Combo of Hewitt, Gaudio and Nalbandian :D

Roddick probably, in the sense we've got the same strengths and weaknesses. Both of us rely on our serve and forehand, plus we're ultra competitive. I think footworks, backhand and volleys lets us both down. Unfortunately I can't quite reach the mid 150s on the serve :sad:

Good serve which is lot of pace but not such a great placement:)
Hits big of Both sides ;)
Great movement and in love of the netgame ( can't bare chilling out on the baseline):yeah:
I will go with Roddick and Henman ;)

Poljud
04-03-2005, 01:05 PM
Cant really think of one, if anyone Roddick, because of the big serve but my game is very much like Gorans was. We both serve a lot of aces and both turn into monsters when we get pissed off :devil:

I know he's not on the list, but the one who i get compared to everytime is Joachim Johansson. I am as tall as him, love my serve, and i get some easy points and aces with it, but somehow i'm becoming afraid to do the serve-volley thing. Maybe because i like to hit some big groundstrokes, especially with my forehand. It seems funnier than go to the net everytime, like i used to do (and back then some people use to call me Max Mirnyi for playing like mad and try to go to the net all the time). ;)

He's ranked No. 11... Just missed him! ;)

Well, maybe if i wait a few weeks he can be at the Top 10, right? ;)

Yet, i don't think he'll succeed at the clay season...Well, hope he comes back serving REALLY well. Then maybe he can have a chance! :wavey:

I serve like David, I have the physical strenght of Coria, the mental strenght of Gaudio and Henman, I play on clay like Roddick, I play on grass like Gaudio, I shout com'on when an opponent misses an easy shot like Hewitt, and I play with the same racket as Federer.
