I've often been told by the guys at my Tennis club I play like Agassi(movement and strokes). Should be b/c I STUDY his every move. Now, if I could just be as consistent as he is...I will join the tour! LOL (easier said than done)

Justine Henin, my backhand when it's on looks identical to hers but my forehand is a little more flat than hers.

I also feel like i play a lot like her since i'm only 5'9 (pretty short for the mens side) so i have to rely a lot more on slicing and dicing, and my footwork.

I had 2 hands on each side before Monica did, so I've always suspected she drove by my house in rural South Carolina where I grew up and copy catted me once she saw me hitting against the side of the house!

I have Myskina's 'see it, kill it'. I can see the winner I'm going to hit before the ball comes over the net.

I go to the net like Hingis. On any short ball. But also like Hingis, but I can't get there if have consistent depth.

My forehand is like Jenn's. Open shoulder, big backswing.

I hit both two handed and one handed backhands, open or closed stance.

My volleys suck, my overhead sucks, my serve is mediocre.

Everyone says my backhand is exactly like Venus's .... but as far as my playing style i would have to go with a venus/clisters combo Im able to hit winners if I choose to but I think im a little more comfortable being more defensive and waiting for the opening. Mt Backhand is more consistent but both stokes are very solid ... I have pretty good volleys ... I def could have a better second serve but it is coming along nicely

I would say Kim. Coz even though my forehand is strong but I can easily make unforced errors, and my backhand is weaker, but it's more consistent.

Everybody says that my forehand is like ASV's, and my movement is like Pierce's , my serve is similar to Dementieva's, and my backhand is like Stevenson's.

-one of those "bad" Williams fans that everyone keeps talking about
