So let's bag him out because he doesn't hide his weaknesses behind a big serve and a forehand.
He's tactically astute, I'll give you that, and he can volley. But "plays aggressively" isn't really true and he doesn't really have a weapon. He's more like an aggressive counter-puncher than an actual aggressive offensive player. Nothing in his game grades out as anything but adequate, and his volleys are good, but not even that great. So yes, his lack of game is what makes me not like him. He's one of the least interesting players on tour.
