Do you ever hear the 'experts' talking and you suddenly realise you've missed something huge about a player's game? That they make more mistakes off one side, that they use more spin for this shot, that they've changed their grip in the past few months? Or do you see something new with ur fave's game all the time, which you think you should have noticed by now?

To put it bluntly, I get it all the time.

Whats the most difficult thing to notice about a player, what do you not notice the most?

(of course, some people are perfect and know everything. you people should voluntarily hide away for my self esteem)

Western and eastern grips and other grips from all corners of the world, I really can't tell them apart. And for someone who plays tennis that is really lame I know. :p

e.g.

What type of grip does Serena use for her forehand?
How does Justine's new service motion benefit or hinder her?
Just how do Monica and Lindsay's speed to short balls differ?
How does Jelena's forehand compare to her backhand?
Which player is most likely not to choke when serving for a match?

That kinda stuff.

My vote to potential.
I cant help but wonder about players' places in history, alltime charts, wannabe champions, future chances and so forth and so on.
It's kind of a virus......
