Re: Of These Non-Power WTA Players, Whose Game Do You Prefer ???

I voted for Jankovic, Aga comes in second.

Didn't pick Kiri simply because I think she actually produces a fair amount of power for someone with such a small frame as hers, her volleying skills are drool-worthy though.

• Bartoli • Hantuchova • Schnyder • A.Radwanska • Cibulkova • Szavay • Cornet • S.Williams • Hsieh • Chuang • Medina Garrigues • A.Bondarenko •

Re: Of These Non-Power WTA Players, Whose Game Do You Prefer ???

Vinci and Oprandi are soo different than Brianti and Errani

And where is Dominguez Lino? Watching her succesful moonballing is pretty hilarious and I like it

Yvonne´s magic is also very nice to watch

Too good this. Kirilenko is weaponless except against Radwanska.

Bepa, only because I love her backhand. Aga comes in second.

Jankovic and Dulgheru

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Re: Of These Non-Power WTA Players, Whose Game Do You Prefer ???

Meusburger

Actually I like Alex most, but I don't think that I'm impatient on this topic. Her game perfectly suits to claycourts with slice shots opening the field and making the point by her double back hand!

She defends very well on the baseline and is able to be consistent most of the clay season. Nevertheless her second serve is mediocre and she tends to be overpowered by other players on Hard, so I often want to look the other way when I see her playing there...

And Caro is also nice to watch, though she had a lot of power today!

Why are the Italian players classified in one group if they have a totally different game, especially Errani?

Re: Of These Non-Power WTA Players, Whose Game Do You Prefer ???

here is my impression:

Wozniacki - the golden hair retriever simply the queen of this style of tennis ... great athlete, good anticipation, alot of topspin on both forehand and backhand ... trying hit more winners as she did today

Meusburger - solid counterpunch game like Jankovic or Myskina but not as much power

Dullgheru - master of the junk ball ... forehand slices, moonballs ... hard for her to win matches on hardcourt against ballbashers

Jankovic - counterpunch game but can flatten out her backhand ... like the sound of the ball coming off her racquet more than most of these other players

Peer - have not seen her play recently

Zhang - replaced Meng Yuan as the Chinese pusher but has a much better game including a backhand that she can flat hit if she want to

A Radwanska - no clothing contract but most variety of all the players here ... can hit dropshots, volleys, slice backhand

Errani / Vinci / Brianti / Oprandi - in the shadow of Schiavone and Pennetta so don't really know the difference between their games ... seems like they are all very short, unlike Santangelo and Knapp, and none of them have much power

Zvonareva - I now think her game is much more boring than Wozniacki ... solid shots from both sides but nothing special at all

Kirilenko - tried ballbashing but will always be a candidate to be overpowered by the real ballbashers

Re: Of These Non-Power WTA Players, Whose Game Do You Prefer ???

Difference between Oprandi/Vinci and Brianti/Errani...First group is much talented and their game are just joy to watch...Errani and especially Brianti are different...Although I saw Sara playing very nice tennis once (Against Ivanovic in RG)
They don´t deserve to be in the same group

Vera & Aga! Though I'm glad Jankovic is playing better too, she's not my favorite.
