Muller, Dominguez Lino, AMG, and Errani are supposedly.
Errani could beat Stosur, seeing as she took Lindsay to 3 sets this year, and is on a high in confidence

Meng Yuan i think moonballs. While i think LDL does

I disagree with Errani, but oh well.

She was very aggressive and dictating against Serena.

I used to think she is but not anymore. Now she is just a pusher to me, but not a moonballer.

AMG is definitely not a moonballer. Dominguez Lino is a great example.

meng yuan vs patty schnyder was just dire moonballing :help:
meng yuan did nothing but moonball in that entire match and patty pretty much returned moonballs

Exactly lol...but Meng did hit some aggressive shots to get to 5-1..but she moonballed few times there though, but after that it was all moonballs :o

I would say I saw some defensive lobs. A few. Usually to keep her in the point. Nothing strange.

And I saw a lot of deep topspin shots that did bounce high behind the baseline.

O'Brien was playing the same way.

But, I didn't see that Montreal match.

The worst case of moonballing I've ever seen was Pratt, I think it was against Li.

I don't complain about this tactic, both for variety, and if it works.

After seeing both of them play, I don't think that either Yuan or Errani are moonballers. The only one that I can think of, off the top of my head, is Antonella Serra Zanetti

There is a defference between a counter-puncher and a moonballer. Medina is no moonballer, she's a counter puncher. Lourdes, however, is a moon baller.

i guess because you hit balls so high they go up to the moon, as a figure of speech i guess.

that rome match between dani and AMG last year was a moon ball special. the crowd were laughing/booing after a while. they seemed to get involved in rallies where the ball got higher in the air with each shot!

Muller is a moonballer, and maybe if you read you would see the word supposedly, meaning according to other people.;)

Was just about to post. She's the biggest moonballer ever lol. The term 'flat ball' just doesnt exist in her vocabulary. :tape:
