I'm new here and I must say that posters on this board are well informed and fun!
I would like to know your opinion, among the ATP players whose groundstokes would like to have as part of your game (if you're a tennis player)?
Federer's groundstrokes are beautiful, when he's in the groove. A killer forehand and a beautiful backhand...
Since i'm a small woman but enjoy playing the game, i WISH i had Justine Henin's groundstrokes, especially that backhand. Man, she may be not huge compared to the others but she's got power and plays beautiful tennis. (sigh!)
Safin has great groundstrokes too, but so does Hewitt, Agassi, Ferrero, and ...Youzhny.
i patterned my game after Steffi Graf which means that for years i had a forehand that popped and i sliced the backhand. then Hingis came along and she became my new role model -- so now i have a two-handed backhand and i can still pop 'em on the forehand. but if i had to switch to a guy role model, i'd go for Guga's or Moya's games. they both have complete, all-round, all-surface games, altho' Guga's backhand is just awesome and Moya's forehand is almost as good as mine...
