Re: Ryan Sweeting
Well, Ryan has a two-handed backhand, so that's a major difference. I mean, I wouldn't say that, no. Ryan constructed a lot of points, he doesn't just go for winners which seems to be James' game. Ryan also goes to the net quite a bit.
I could see Ryan being very successful on clay while Blake is not. Ryan is also much smaller and uses racquet speed and not brute force to power his shots. I don't see that they're that similar.
