Which pro does your game compare most to?

Ive just been watching Hercog and noticed I play a lot like her aside from her use of the double backhand. Big forehand, good use of the slice to move them around and mix it up, particularly the slice dtl and moving in. Like I said though difference is If I hit my backhand flat its one handed.

Wozniacki, but I can hit winners though and turn defense into offense. So maybe Clijsters, but I don't hit flat like her

Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

I try to play the drive volleys like Maria to finish off the points but I fail at it most of the time.
I really love to wrongfoot my opponents though, like Chaky. I love hitting wrongfooting winners.

If all of you are that good, why aren't any of you playing professionally?

I play tournaments and stuff around the country. More competitive then what most poster's play anyway. The Mary Pierce comparison is kinda unbelievable though.

In other words, you play like you.
