It's good as it is now. As a spectator, I really enjoy long exchanges with high percentage of quality shots, where I can go "wow" even 5-6 times during a point. Those emotional spikes make my bonds with the game tighter. Tennis was REALLY boring in the time when you couldn't utter the "w" in "wow" before the point was over.

Technique over excitement? Not for me.

Or are you trying to make yourself feel better since your comedy act is wearing thin.
Are you seriously trying to say that Fed's not an attacking player? What the fuck are you smoking mate? Then again, I guess you wouldn't be able to spot an attacking player even if your life depended on it considering the words in bold. His slice, his main shot by far? Seriously? Are you so blinded by your tardism that you don't even realise you're talking out of your ass?

FedGimp's main shot is clearly the backhand shank.

Why did you undermine my serious post? That was the first time in weeks that I posted something serious in GM.

The only reason those highlights are fun is the commentator.

i grew up trying to emulate McEnore....i'm a lefty and i tried everything from the serve to trying to remember his footwork as he approached the net. if i studied in school as much or as hard as i studied him i would have my PhD in Physics today. Miss the days of wooden racquets and strings that actually popped when one swung as hard as he could

It all adds to variety in the game, so i would like to see more serve and volley ! too much thought and we would get no decent rallies just people wining service points easy or people screwin up a volley! you need to have a big serve to serve and volley there are a few big servers out there none volley , that i can think of, (you need to realise with the modern game with the courts being slowed down and with a lot of players having good passing shots serve and volley is basically suicide) I would like to see a serve and volleyer but i can,t see anyone coming threw with it !

Nice to see Llodra into the quarters of Marseille. His opponent will be either Olivetti or Fish.
Serve and volley isn't extinct just yet
