Do any male players remind you of Lena D's hitting style?

I made a thread in the general about this, but instead of just Lena, I just asked about male/female player comparisons.

I think Rainer Scheuttler has Lena-esque groundstrokes. He even has Lena's trademark "woop" sound.

It's ironic that are ATP players that remind me of Lena's playing style, but no WTA players that remind me of Lena's playing style. She truly is one in a million.

I guess Nadal has her muscles and the same very powerful hitting when pulled out wide... many an hit from an acute angle ,but only Lena in WTA can do it with such ferocious power and make unreturnable winners from it ,Nadal does it in ATP.

Re: Do any male players remind you of Lena D's hitting style?

Sorry, but there's no way anything with a penis, under any circumstances, is going to remind me of our beautiful girl.

Okay, except for that time I commented she looks like her dad, which she does. But that's different.

LOL You said that before. Obviously, Lena does not look like a man, but her playing style is aggressive, so men could have the aggressive style too. I'm just talking about groundstrokes Max.

Yep, if you look at Lena next to a lot of other players she really is quite slender. I've noted too that many people who have met her have commented on how slim she is in real life. Willowy is a good term, I think. "Thin" or "skinny" sound unhealthy, which she isn't.

As far as her hitting style, no guy, and no other woman on earth can hit the full-body rotation screaming forehand of death.

I think you see her as slender because she's not broad-shouldered and she actually looks like a woman. All the players look like dudes or drag queens off the court. If you want someone skinny, Myskina is frickin skinny.

Re: Do any male players remind you of Lena D's hitting style?

I'd say Dani and Nastya actually are what I would call thin. Lena, Vee, JHH, Nikki and JJ I'd say are all "slender."

Not that a lot of the other women aren't attractive or feminine to me, they just aren't what I'd call slender.

Re: Do any male players remind you of Lena D's hitting style?

To me Lena looks pretty dam built ,I think some are kidding themselves here ,her shoulders are not mega broad ,but very heavily muscled ,her legs are huge ,and she has abs and biceps that most men would be proud to have ,and very muscular forearms too ,but ,shes 6 feet tall ,so it all goes together beautifully ,her thighs are very large ,but cos her legs are long ,they look gorgeous. Lena is not "butch" because shes got the height to carry off her build ,but sorry ,shes defo not thin .The way I would describe her is Athletic ,powerful, shes got a solid build.

So no more of this thin crap ,it makes her sound like some teeny nymph that the wind would blow away rather that the gorgeous magnificent athlete she is.

I remeber "Me & Lena D" saying when she saw her live and close ,that she couldnt beleive how powerful she looked..

Re: Do any male players remind you of Lena D's hitting style?

I didn´t express myself well with the concept "thin"

My point is that if you weight 68-70 kgs and you hit a winner consistently with that weight ... come on !!! you're a tennis player with too much power and you are a "thin people" for the tennis standars iwith ----->

1 , 83 mts (6 feet ) and 68-70 kgs

Sorry for my crap english peeps

Re: Do any male players remind you of Lena D's hitting style?

I must honestly say that the time when I saw her live and close off-court, I wasn’t that much impressed by her. First, she looked smaller to me than the 6ft or even 5’11” people are talking about. Second, I found her physique rather average. Or better, I found it the way female bodies are intended to be.
Mind you, I was really close. Had I raised my hand a couple of inches, it would have, let’s say, put me in hospital (it was probably worth it, but it is no use crying over spilt milk).
No argument here, she is very strong which really shows when she is on court with all her muscles tightened.
