Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2
You're looking at it too simplistically (just in terms of "defensive or not"). It's not just a matter of whether you defend but how. You can't just lump Brad Gilbert with, say, Murray or Hewitt. Brad Gilbert wasn't defending - he was literally pushing! That was his stock in trade.
He didnt have much speed in his shots, thats true. But he surprised his opponents from time to time by suddenly playing S&V.
But hey, its no big deal when we disagree.
And what outcome do you expect from the Mona vs Kisten match tomorrow?
