Usually I hate serve&volley players, because these players always give tough matchup to my favorites.But in the very ending I think I like this play style ,it makes tennis various.

Clownpras. You make me laugh.
Sampras RG finals: 0

Serve got exposed on slow courts every year.

Feelsbadman to see s/v becoming extinct. Although it is annoying to see 1/2 shot rallies all the time, as is the case with s/v, it is equally as frustrating to see 15-20 shot rallies quite frequently. A balance needs to be found so that both styles can be employed effectively.

So please remind me since when did RG performances become the sole criterion by which you determine a player's career by.

Thanks and I await to hear your response.

And please TDoc....

Stay safe.

Its not about RG, it's about adapting to your weak surface and prevailing there. Sampras was a clay clown who tried to S&V his way to title despite the fact that it was obviously a fail tactic.

So does that also hold true for Nadal as he didn't adopt in Madrid last week and reguarly falters at indoor events? Using your logic he shalt be renamed clowndal, right?

Nadal : career gs
Sampras : no career GS

On the big stage Nadal brought out his best, Sampras didn't

So you are using RG performances as the sole criterion for judging a players career? Because you just said a moment ago that you were calling out Mcenroe and Samprass because they failed to adopt, yet I just countered your argument by using you God and you've gone back to using RG performances.

And lettuce beef real tea here, winning a career GS has lost it's aura since all the courts play at pretty much the same speed.

Also u aware?

Seles is a Mindless ball basher, Its Clownpras not Sampras, and Clownfelnikov.

When was the last time a serve volley even made it deep into a grand slam? Such a shame it's died.

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned...

Lol what?

I am calling out the so called all time greats failure to adapt to a particular surface. In both of their cases it happens to be RG. If Sampras won RG 10 times but didn't win wimby or USO, I would present exactly the same argument.

Career GS has lost no meaning. Only clueless nostalgia tards think otherwise. If it's so easy, why have only 2 players (both all time greats) managed to do it?

of course TsD thinks tennis only started in 2006.

I really wouldn't need to say anything else but just consider this.

It was an accomplishment 10 years ago to be a millionaire, much less so today.
Just because you achieve the same thing does not mean the accomplishment is the same anymore

Being a millionaire isn't the same anymore due to inflation.

If anything winning a CGS is much harder and more prestigious today because this is one of the strongest eras ever.

They ought to speed up everything after the French Open. That will get all the serve and volleyers crawling out of the woodwork. Might even tempt Mario Ancic out of retirement. Mark Philippoussis too
