The question is whether you are glad it is extinct, not whether you're glad it no longer dominates. That's a distinction even the denizens of MTF should be able to grasp. I can't see how it's good for any style of play to die out.

Neutral. I wouldn't say it's extinct though; no one is going to play with wooden racquets again, that's for sure, but they could very easily speed up the courts at any time in the future.

Who are the top 4 "defensive baseliners" and who and what is the other one?

The lack of variety is horrendous as I speak on this day - the 22nd of February 2012

S/V tennis has its majestic brilliance and the going for broke style net charging gets me giddy with RAGE - nothing does it more than players risking it all in a kamikaze style of play - I absolutely love it.

But it is now almost extinct, which I hate, which is why it must remain this way. The lack of variety and grinding crapness of tennis today fill my RAGE cores - it WILL continue to be this awful and I WILL remain energized.

Djokovic. He is the only one with variety at the moment in the top 4.

There's a difference between 'all-serve' guys and S/V players. Henman and Rafter are good examples, they had good serves but what made them so exciting was their approach play and amazing reactions up at the net. Guys like philippoussis, Goran etc were less exciting but those kind of guys are still around today, Isner the best example.

When people say they miss S/V they don't want it to dominate or anything, they just want a more even field where you can see different styles of tennis clashing. Thats the real beauty of the sport. I'd compare it to boxing with an Ali/Frasier etc. Imagine how awesome watching Nadal at his height against Edberg on an oldschool Wimbledon surface would've been.

Also Djokovic is a defensive baseliner you guys, the only top guy he looks like the attacker against is Nadal.
