Today's players have the most boring personality. Who really gives cares about a players training routine. The Tiger Woods care free method of training would do a lot of good for Murray.

Re: This era is in desperate need of another Marit Safin

Yea.. We need another guy who shows up once every half a decade to play tennis. I think we need some mentally tough, mentally aggressive players more then anything. Alpha males. There are too many pussycats on the pro-tour today

the tour needs variety more than anything. The sport's current emphasis on sheer fitness and power from the baseline has made most of the upcoming youngsters develop cookie-cutter games (harrison, tomic). Dolgopolov is a breath of fresh air but he can't be the only one. Get some serve and volley going.

No one teaches serve and volley anymore.. The chances of that strike first, chip and charge, serve-volley game is gone. You have a better chance of pissing in the wind and not getting wet then to see it ever return.

The game has evolved to baseline, one dimensional ball bashing. No all surface game. It can still work, you see it employed once every blue moon if you see a top guy playing some mug , but it will never return sadly. No one is teaching it, no one grew up with it, and no one has any confidence doing it

Haas Wimbledon 2009 was the last a decent slam run was made with these tactics.

The era needs an inconsistent ballbasher who has zero respect for the sport? No.

Marat Safin LOL!!!

God no. The most inconsistent player ever.

People always say, "what if he had no injuries" "what if this" "what if that!"

Come on, stop with this what if BS, reality is reality, lets learn to accept it, lets not be idealistic now.
