What tennis style do U play

I mean, there are many ways U can play tennis, It´s just how U play your gamestyle right.... east, westengrib etc. By that, I mean what DO your tennis "STYLE" look like.. your tennis Idole, or your own... And witch is the best.. I have "copy" serena forhand, backhand, serve and a male version grunt.. LOL.. the rest looks like andy´s style.. pretty patetich.. It works well.. it´s all gooooood

What about your style

Serena Personal quotes - "I'm afraid I'm already a shopaholic. Fortunately, I'm no longer in denial, and the first step to recovering is getting out of denial."... Work it girl"

My style? One word for that.... crap! I'd like to emulate my game after Stefan Edberg (S & V). But, to do that, I'd first need talent, skill, height, strength, the list goes on... So, I'm stuck playing a baseline game that would make Nancy Loeffler-Caro look like a Grand Slam champ!

my Style is power. i hit really hard and flat off the ground and over power my opponent. i am pretty much in control of most rallies because if i am on the run thats when i start to lose. i am not very fast around the court. ala Davenport and pierce

My game is very similar to Lleyton Hewitt's. I can run down lots of shots & return them with decent depth, but I also like to drill my FLAT 2-handed backhand from just about anywhere. Forehand is pretty much a defensive shot. I also like to work my way into the net. Serve is pretty similar to Hewitt's too.

i model my serve after maria sharapova. I hit my forehand like maria as well and my backhand like Venus.

i have great defensive skills and i do hit a lot of moon balls to get back into the points. I smack it hard when i get the right shot.

i play very flat groundies, but they're very heavy shots, skid and stay pretty low. i hit a lot of stone cold winners without even placing the ball very well.
the serve should be much better if it was to be as good as my ground game is, but it's not. my serves are very flat and sometimes predictable but fast nonethless and at least i don't double fault a lot. it's where i need the most work.
the overhead has always been an awkward shot for me... don't know why. some people can just never miss them and hit them harder than me, but mine's not that good.
my volleys are quite good. i don't come to net often and it only makes them look better because when i do, im usually in such a winning position.
i should never dropshot!!! my opponent need to be so far behind the baseline for mine to be a winner... thank God i can rely on good passing shots bc it's that horrible at times.

One handed backhand and top spin forehand. I love to come in when I get a chance.

i love it to play very aggressiv, but sometimes i play the balls in and play in the defensive very good...because i can run and run and run...thats my advantage...my fitness is very good...my service is indoor very well but outdoor it´s not so good...my volleys are my worst shot...i can´t play them ...my best shot is the backhand...if i play it cross i play it like venus...my legs standing like these from venus ...but the longline backhand is my best shot....

Serena Williams Venus Williams

Good Luck to all Polish Players!!!

Good Luck to Queen Venus Williams and Princess Serena Williams, too!!!

I modeled my game after Hingis....obviously becuz i love her, and I watch her tapes more than anybody elses. My forehand have spin, but I can flatten it if I want to hit it harder, usually I just try to place it well though. My backhand is more flat, I have a close stance backhand (like hingis) so its a good disguise for down the line if I like. The only thing is my volleys really suck...i get nervous when i go up to net

Good Luck Radwanska Sisters!

i didnt style my game after any player thats in regards to say a roddick serve, blake forehand for example i didnt copy anyone. as for how i play, its different on the day, some times i hit my opponent of the court other times i ware them down in rallies, sometimes i out think them and sometimes i scrap my way. it depends on how im playing on the day and how my opponent is playing, i dont often scrap tho (only when my game is totally off).

Go the aussies! stosur!!!
and good luck russians: dementieva, safina, kirilenko, sharapova, kuznetsova, bovina, zvonareva, dushevina.

also good luck to: azarenka, lucic, sprem, vakulenko, vaidisova, safarova, ivanovic, groenefeld, mirza, krajicek, kvitkova, larcher de brito, lisicki.

My serve is streaky like Monica's...

I'm a baseliner w/no real huge weakness, but I'm trying to get to net more...

sounds exactly like me
im the biggest psycho on court i go off all the time
i am most comfortable rallying from the baseline, my serve is really bad most days (indoors i can hit it about 10 times better i think its cos of my really high balltoss), on good days my forehand is my biggest weapon on bad days its my biggest weakness, my backhand is always solid, pretty hard and flat, i think alot on court and try to expose my opponents weaknesses, i fight for everything try to get everything back

Go the Aussies

my forehand is like roddicks, my backhand is like agassi's, my serve is like maria's, my volleys r like i have no clue cause i'm not good at the net. I like to hit hard and mostly flat from the baseline, move the ball around the court and take the offensive so my opponent doesn't start to move me around, because then i get in some trouble because i don't have the best footwork, i'm fast but i don't hit the best shot on the run, i like to be in position, sorta like Lindsay.
