Mahut's aggressive style of playing is exactly why I like to watch him so much. He might not be the most talented in terms of 'true' technique, but he at least has the guts to come up to the net and take his chances when they are there. :yeah:Mahut has a "wooden technique" (especially from the baseline) but credit to him because of attacking style; he was at the net after amost every first serve, many serve-and-volley play after 2nd serve as well :yeah:
It's especially worthy against such a player like Ferrero who plays passing-shots very well.Mahut's aggressive style of playing is exactly why I like to watch him so much.

me too :yeah: sad he couldn't defeat Roddick in that finalAwesome playing by Mahut! :hatoff:
I've been impressed with his game ever since Queens 2007 (yeah, I admit I might have been a bit of a bandwagonner at that time as I had never seen him play before... ) - but here he showed his true quality yet again.
Lovely, very aggressive playing style - coming to the net whenever possible (and when NOT, too ), great serve-volleying, and his drop-volleys (when his game is on) are just fantastic. Great serve, too - 15 aces, did I count that right?
Juanqui hug - just too passive, reluctant today. Ah well. I hope he's been having a great birthday party yesterday, and I'm sure he'll be back soon.
Thanks gentlemen for a very tight and entertaining match! :worship:
He can be good again but not great again. Top 20 consistently is possible. This is not a mug loss anyway, Mahut can play well at times and indoors suits him.His deluded fans can still keep waiting for this. It will never happen
