Re: Moonballers?

Muller, Dominguez Lino, AMG, and Errani are supposedly.
Errani could beat Stosur, seeing as she took Lindsay to 3 sets this year, and is on a high in confidence

Re: Moonballers?

I disagree with Errani, but oh well.

She was very aggressive and dictating against Serena.

Re: Moonballers?

I used to think she is but not anymore. Now she is just a pusher to me, but not a moonballer.

AMG is definitely not a moonballer. Dominguez Lino is a great example.

2016 Titles:
Tennis Tipping: (S) ITF Toronto | (D) Dalian (w/ Nottheone), ITF Bendigo (w/ Randy)
Suicide: Strasbourg, Tashkent, Hong Kong

Re: Moonballers?

meng yuan vs patty schnyder was just dire moonballing
meng yuan did nothing but moonball in that entire match and patty pretty much returned moonballs

If you're not paying for something, then you're the product.

Re: Moonballers?

I would say I saw some defensive lobs. A few. Usually to keep her in the point. Nothing strange.

And I saw a lot of deep topspin shots that did bounce high behind the baseline.

O'Brien was playing the same way.

But, I didn't see that Montreal match.

The worst case of moonballing I've ever seen was Pratt, I think it was against Li.

I don't complain about this tactic, both for variety, and if it works.
