Pick a player, subtract their most valuable stroke, predict their ranking.

(Attributes such as mental strength and athleticism can't be subtracted, thats fuckin stupid)

This is to evaluate how reliant certain players are to their strokes.

pos. name/stroke. new pos.
1. Roger/fore = 1
2. Nadal/fore = 2
3. Andy/serve = 90
4. Hewitt/back = 7
5. Nikolay/Serve = 11
6. David/Back = 20
7. Agassi/Back = 6
8. Coria/Back = 25
9. Ivan/Serve = 40
10. Gaudio/Back = 110

So you have a computer in your head the calculates where the rest of the 1500 players on Tour go to? :retard:

How the hell can you say Roddick drops to #90...or Ivan #40...or anything. :retard:

I agree with Federer, Nadal and Agassi - they are still top 10, the former 2 top 2 anyway. :rolleyes:

What a pointless thread.

:retard: :retard: :retard:

If Davydenko's most valuable shot is his serve, then the man in my avatar is the second coming of Rod Laver.

If Andy Roddick served like Elena Dementieva I guess he would be ranked about 150 :help:
How do you calculate the numbers - guesswork :eek:

If a player was lacking their most valuable stroke, they would have developed some of their other strokes differently. That is to say, if Andy had a crap serve, he'd probably have a better backhand... or something.

I know that I'm missing the point by pointing this out, I'm just saying. If one doesn't have something to rely on, they work on other things so that they have more to fall back on.

I'm sure Federer and Nadal would be unranked if they had to run around every forehand :confused:

Sad but very true!

But what about Roger and his backhand? Take it away and he'll probably drop to 4 or 5 considering the number of winners that it generates.

I'm going to go out on a limb and assume that as delusional as the thread starter is, he meant that you'd take away a player's weapon and replace it with an average stroke.
