Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

Im most like a mix between Aga Radwanska and Kim Clijsters. I play mostly a defensive game but can hit withenough power to strike winners from the back of the court. My backhand is amazae and my forehand is alirght. Like Aga I love to use drop shots and lobs and I always seem to guess where my opponent is hitting the ball. The best of both worlds!

Im suprised at the high level of people playing a defensive/counter punching style.

of course not. Good thing is I can`t get pregnant.

I serve like Sesil or Larcher de Brito. Without improvement - like them.

Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

I'm a bit like Ivanovic. I have a huge forehand, which is most definitely my favorite shot. My backhand is solid, and I can hit winners off that side, but I prefer to dictate off the forehand side. I also have a big serve, but my biggest issue is mental, and the serve tends to go off the boil and I can hit a fair few double faults I'm not feeling confident or doubting myself. My mentality is very much like Zvonareva. When I can hold it together, I can play very well, But once I lose it, I really lose it

wow thats a bold statement. are u saying your at there level of play? and consistently able to produce shots like them? because if your not able to i wouldnt nessesarily state that ur game is like theres.

i think players tend TO THINK they can be able able to play at the pro level and believe in there heads that they are as good or even better than the pros...but in reality just because u potentially can do alot of what they can do day to day they do it so well and on such a consistant basis.

in my own way i grew up following CAPRIATI...im naturally pretty quick about the court and have super strong legs ...quads like trunks...i am like her consistently able to handle pace and power no issues...the more power the better baby. i am good on the run and i am very hard to pass u literally have to hit 3 or 4 winning shots to end a point with me...so Jennifer for sure

Seeing as the question says: What pro does your game compare most to...it implies that you are not a professional, nor do I claim to be one. I play tennis in college, and I could never BE a professional. You should really read the question. Though, yes I am able to hit hard consistently, with topspin and depth, and I can complete 50 ball drills and beyond at that pace.

I offended u. Awww I'm sorry I didn't mean to hurt your feelings drills are fun and I know what ur talking about I' do drills myself but I meant more the match component of being on at all times but maybe I didn't phrase it well

Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

I hit backhands flat, my forehands have little topspin on them, my serves are fast and flat.

I assume my style of play is Jelena Dokic?
