Tennis, 10 years from now!?

What do you think tennis will look like 10 years from now?

Will it still be hardhitters or more technical players? Netplayers, fast runners, big servers?

What do you think, I'm curious.

Re: Tennis, 10 years from now!?

I have thought of that before
In the past 1 or 2 decades the game has obviously changed from slower pace to a faster one. Now EVERYONE work on hitting the ball harder or with greater accuracy, and it seems like this one-dimensional atmosphere is not going to stop. But I can't imagine if women games change into a even more hardhitting and (boring) style..

Possibly an extra slam, in Asia.

I'll stop watch tennis if they continue brainless ballbashing.


Inspiration is for amateurs

Hopefully another Hingis-type will come along and take it away from the power hitters again. But it's unlikely that will happen.

^LOL 20 years from now we'll have the first ever mother-daughter final. Lindsay against her daughter. The daughter she is now pregnant with.

Imagine her daughter congratulating "Mom" for a great tournament.

Waiting for Ana Ivanovic to just retire already .

Re: Tennis, 10 years from now!?

I think the game will change a little bit. Players like Federer and Justin have changed been prime examples of different tennis. Still powerful but still a lot of angles and slice and spin. Same with Nadal. Big hitting will be common but I think it will change. a little.

Venus Williams. Serena Williams.

Re: Tennis, 10 years from now!?

Im sure it'll still be heavy hitting, but players will mix it up more... i mean look at Sharapova against serena she kept throwin in the drop shots (ill advised drop shots, but drop shots none the less) Serena also mixes it up well these days..... Im sure you'll still have your mindless ball bashers like sania Mirza running around, but the game of the ball bashers has changed alot already look at how Venus won her first Wimbledon Title to how she won her 4th....

Venus Ebone Starr


Serena Williams

Sharapova

Hantuchova

Janković will probably make a comeback playing "only" 25 tournaments that year.

^25 Tier III's and Tier IV's Plus the ITF events since she just loves to play so much so she's filling in the off-season by playing ITF.
