No one is saying they are as good as that player they are just saying which player their games are similar too. Obviously we are all no where near as good as the pros.

Then how can your games be similar?

Because you play in a simalar style, have similar stroke production or similar patterns of play???? is it really that hard to get. Obviously I dont play exactly like Mary and Lindsay but I have molded my game off of theirs. What us everyone supposed to say they play like Camille Pin or something?

Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

I wouldn't really copy any WTA player's stroke production. Very few have good technique and it's usually things that will only work for them. Serena serve is textbook, but still it's hard to copy. My advice is learn what works best for you and not because a certain player hits this way.

You cannot seriously be this dense. I swear you're often contrary for the sole purpose of being contrary.

Yawn. Clearly we arent as good as pros, its which pros game does it RESEMBLE. Obviously we cant hit with the same power. Stop being such a wet blanket. Or really stupid, maybe both.

Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

A bit of Vinci - Slice backhand, can make some damage at the net..but that´s all...If you´ll find a serve-volleyer with shitty serve hitting many DF´s per match, absolutely horrible in groundstrokes with no forehand who plays backhad one handed, two handed but MOSTLY slice, using a lot of dropshots, has pretty good volleys and is a solid net player with a good reactions, is a headcase but also can make a comeback, who is fistpumping or yelling "COME ON" after every single winning point, throwing racquets and going nuts after too many errors then this player can be compared with me...but I didn´t find any yet

Vaidisova in her off days

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.

True. I can attest to this.

I take great offense in this post. I do play like Dokic, I hit the back fence over and over again. And my backhand is very Golovin-like. Non existent.

Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

I try to copy the players' shots, I copy Hantuchova's forehand and Molik's sliced forehand. And a bit of Kleybanova's backhand.

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.
