Lendl's Forehand 04-25-2008 04:46 PM

Chang's underhand serve to Lendl at '89 French Open
 
Some have critisized it as a bushleague tactic while others have said it was a smart play.

What's your take on it?

It was right because it was Chang...

Chang -> Smart play
Hingis -> bitch

I think it's a smart play, just to surprise, to keep the guy at the other side of the net thinking you could come up with some trick again... just mental play, not bad.

I'd forgotten how funny it was at the time. Sneaky, but funny! :devil:

That was so pathetic. Awful.

Chang was dead tired against the fit Lendl.

Smart play.

The match was great with that serve and Chang standing near the service line when Lendl was serving.

Took balls to stand up to the intimidating Lendl at only 17.

I had totally forgotten about this. When I hear mention of underhand serve and French Open I instantly think of Martina Hingis.

I think itīs usually not too fair to use something like that, but in Changīs case, he was exhausted, cramps etc. He had to do whatever he could to disturb Lendlīs rhythm. So smart play!

Smart play. Any such tactic used against that twat Lendl has got to be applauded.

It was rubbish. Pure and simple.
