Conchita Martinez "My game was similar to many men"

Just said that during the Directv LA Coverage of Petkovic vs Jankovic SF Cincy match.

"In the sense that i used a lot of topspin, one hand varying the game"

The description of her game is alright, but to be honest i fail to relate her game to any men, from 80s or 90s...

YES, ESPECIALLY HER SERVE

Don’t squander the gold of your days listening to the tedious, trying to improve the hopeless failure, or giving away your life to the ignorant and the vulgar. These are the sickly aims, the false ideals of our age.

Re: Conchita Martinez "My game was similar to many men"

A lot of male clay courters in the early 90s had similar games to hers. It was heavy topspin.

Forehand sure a lot of topspin, inside out at times from Conchita really good, but when it comes to the backhand, way too different.

Alberto's game was unortodox, bizarre tecnique, superwestern grip on that forehand, Conchita was more fluid, more classic style.


I don't really see the similarities with their games... here

Re: Conchita Martinez "My game was similar to many men"

You're misunderstanding her, she meant that her game for picking up women is similar to that of many men.

Re: Conchita Martinez "My game was similar to many men"

I loved her game, when she wasn't phoning it in and being lazy. They all thought they could beat this old bitch, until the moonballs and slices started to bewitch, and they could just not explain how they were losing game after game to this veteren from Spain.

Her GOAT time-wasting tactic is similar to Nadal's

Supporting useless players before it was cool.
