Re: Henri Leconte: the Mad Genius

Thank you for the memories. He was one of my childhood "heroes".
He could get me through despair, joy, and awe in the same match.
And almost 17 years later, I still get goosebumps watching replays of the 91 DC final.

Re: Henri Leconte: the Mad Genius

One day, Leconte could play like the best player ever, and other like a piece of complete crap. He really had genius in him and was great to watch... Thanks Riton for the great memories !

Fantastically gifted player. He was great to watch and his shotmaking was right up there with the best.

I remember at our tennis club they showed us video clips of his volleys when we were doing volleys. According to our coach, he had the most beautiful and effective "stop volley" especially on the backhand wing he had ever seen.

You're right...Henri COULD win a set from Roger 6-0 when playing at the level of "madness" only he was capable of...

But then...he would probably proceed to lose the next two sets to Roger, 1-6, 1-6.

Re: Henri Leconte: the Mad Genius

just finish watching youtube clips of Henri he was good but everyone knows federer on a good day means bagel and i can see him giving Henri a few of them, maybe on a off day he's not playing well then he might have a chance.
