Players Reminding You of Other Players

I thought of this after reading an article about Nastya Pavlyuchenkova.

http://tennisworld.typepad.com/thewr...not-nasty.html
"She begins with a long, Davenport-esque loop. The result, like Lindsay's so often was, is a devastatingly flat and penetrating ball."

This made me wonder whether anyone is reminded of certain players from the past when they are watching young players of today's generation. I know there has been much talked about Vaidisova's backhand being very reminiscent of Venus'.

Re: Players Reminding You of Other Players

That's a good one!

I meant more like technique or playing styles though.

Re: Players Reminding You of Other Players

Ekaterina BYCHKOVA always reminds me of Anna KOURNIKOVA ... because of her serve motion!

I love their serve!!!

Serena: "We have great personalities like Jelena (Jankovic) on the tour."
Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."

Good Luck

Re: Players Reminding You of Other Players

I thought that Radwanska's service motion is kinda similar to Davenport

Re: Players Reminding You of Other Players

Anastaia P reminded me of Jennifer Capriati when I first saw her last night.
Azeranka kinda reminds me a bit of Maggie Meleeva. I'm not talking playing styles at all. Just something about the way they carry themselves on the court. Zvereva and that tan girl from Venuzulea (SP) look alike imho. The one that wears her dark glasses on the court. She's underated on the board with her looks though.

Re: Players Reminding You of Other Players

Bar, the double hander, srebotnik reminds me of Novotna, i dont know why. I think it's Kata's athletic ability that does the comparison for me.

Camille Pin/Coetzer
Vinci/Raymond

Alberta Brianti is like a Henin in every way. Just 10x worse.
