MMA? I don't think that's something you can compare with ball sports

I'll give you GSP, but what about Anderson Silva and Jon Jones?

Yes it's boring. Waiting for mistakes is classless. I don't hate Simon, but his playstyle is boring. At least, Kinder Bueno takes risks, makes UE mostly but he tries.
Gasquet, when he's on, plays suicide tennis, and that's clearly the best tennis for me.

"wow! 75% on first serve! delightful!" "and 38% on returns, gorgeous!" "I'm ecstatic, he's reached 79,75% on second serve!!"

High percentage, low percentage... it's all good. It's like life man; gotta respect the highs and lows of it. Because at the end of the day, whether shit is high or low, it's fine.

I see lately there's a peace between Fedfans and Djokofans
with the exception of some HORRIBLE Djokotards which are spoiling the party ...

It depends. Agassi 2.0 (AKA The Punisher) was never boring. Watching Andre make opponents run from side to side to side with little chance of winning points until they no longer had legs was awesome.

Same in tennis then, you don't see Monfils and Simon winning multiple slams. Nadal is pretty much the only one who can win frequently without risking a whole lot, but it's unlikely anyone could copy that style and have the same amount of success.

Really? Steve Kerr for example, when he left the NBA, had the highest single season and career percentages for 3s. For single season, his record was .524 and his career was .454.. You gotta be fucking shitting me if you don't think those percentages are considered risky. Whatever you think, 2s are a lot less risky, and yet basketball teams are handing the ball to players that are no where near Kerr's consistency with 3s. Your argument is valid. Teams DO in fact play risky from time to time. Obviously no one wins championships playing entirely risky, but no one wins games just playing not to lose either. Risky plays bring home the wins and entertain the crowd.

Not only is it boring, but I kind of get anxious/squirm around when it is a nadal/novak final or andy/novak matchup. They come up with some awesome shots at times, but it mentally wipes you out after watching their constant 30 something shot rallies.

agreed with both of yo. Nole does play percentages, he goes from ofense to defense, and when he is in the right position, boom, he hits a winner. Novak has never played this style to wear down his opponents. Fed is a natural aggressor and I'm afraid probably the last one left on the tour. However Fed plays percentages too but to the less extent.
