Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

My overall game is lie Jimmy Connors. I hit the ball really flat and my serve is only workable but not great.

Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

I'd love to be able to play like Laura Robson but I'm probably more like Heather Watson in that I have a decent serve, good at vollying and I can hit winners but I do try to play more defensively, as I can't handle making unforced errors.

I use reverse forehands most of the time to put spin on the ball so my friends call me little Nadal.

Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

I'm the slow, bald, ugly, male version of Larsson. I have a loopy forehand, a serve that is either completely on or completely off and my backhand is as grotesque to watch as it is hopeless.

Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

In all honesty, a scrappy version of Radwańska
Volleys are Net play is Drop shots are Being a wall is Power is
Forehand is so random, sometimes I can set up really good shots and sometimes I send moonballs which are just
My backhand, I don't even know I try not to use it because I think it's awful but for some odd reason, I can hit really awkward yet powerless shots which seem to just fall into the court and make everyone I play furious

Bring back Maria Sharapova!

Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

It's honestly hard to say. When I started playing tennis I really wanted to copy Venus. But I realized it was better to be the best version of myself. So I've always blocked out comparisons.

But if I HAD to..

I would say pre-2013 Li Na(ErrorNa). Good forehand, better backhand, I love to be aggressive. My volleys need work, my movement was but I rolled my ankle a few months ago, still working to get back to normal. My serve is more Justine Henin though. I'm a baseliner who like to take the ball early.

Victoria Azarenka.
Serena Williams. Maria Sharapova.

Wozniacki. Stosur. Jankovic. Bouchard. Halep. Muguruza.
Venus. Stephens. Cornet. Hampton. Bencic.
Seles. Henin. Davenport. Hingis. Clijsters.

Weird. That's my serve too. Just 3 inches wider than McEnroe's stance.

That's the only way to be. But my open stance two handed backhand still gets compared to the Williams Sisters. I mean is that like a give away that I'm a Sister fan? Are there not other players that hit open stance backhands? Maybe it's the way I hit it too because I like to take a very early preparation. I wish I could say the rest of my game was like theirs.

I hit it open stance too Sam! Most of the people i play tennis know i'm a fan of theirs but the game is simply too similar to theirs to not see it And i preety much copied Serena's serve,forehand,slices and even drop shot!

I'm not used to crying. . . . It's a little difficult. All my life I've had to fight. It's just another fight I'm going to have to learn how to win, that's all. I'm just going to have to keep smiling.-Serena Williams

Was it really almost a year since I posted this? .

Actually I've changed in the past year. While I still have a similar style to Aga, it's closer to Jankovic now (more aggressive than ever but not nearly enough). My forehands can either be okay or totally shitty , backhand is my best shot and I can hit both the open and closed stance from any position and hit winners if I try (although I play more like a counter puncher). Serves are improving but still a liability, volleys are good enough to be a doubles player but not a specialist like JJ (), and my foot speed is probably the best thing about me. Also my drop shots and lobs are similar to Oracle's but that's about as far as our similarities go these days.

I even bought JJ's racquet the other day

I would say I play similar to Monfils or Andy Murray (sadly)

My on-court attitude: I get really pissed off, but I conceal it very well. I usually come across as relaxed/focused. I may say a few come on's every once in a while, but nothing too over the top. I talk to myself often. I usually never let nerves get to me in important moments of a match. I just come across as very stoic/serious.

Sound like me!

Sisters. And which forehand?

I also like open stance backhand because it makes me use my left hand more. I'm literally hitting a left handed forehand there and because I'm ambi, I really like that feel.
