I mean, the game of both may not seem very attractive at first glance, you can hear here or there how people are underwhelmed with it but still it's very effective
without huge FH or BH, they both manage to win tournaments and score major upsets
although i don't like the term, they could be seen as pushers, both are solid players and defence is probably their strongest point but they also know how to counterattack and take control of a rally
finally, a year ago not that many tennis fans saw top ten potential in those two but Aga already reached no.9 and Simon has reached no.17
any thoughts on this?

I like this style of play!

they are not built like bodybuilders so they play tennis with their own strenghs
Radwanska has more variety and touch than Gilles though!

why? :confused:

Because the conversation will focus on Simon since we are all aware of how Radwanska plays.

That's the best reason you could come up with? :lol: :tape:

As for the OP, I don't really think so. There are some similarities, Radwanska's game focuses more on spins than Simon's does though. Simon is just a wall.

No Gilles is amaze and Radwankska isn't :o.

But no, gilles is more of an exciting to player to watch when he's on... He always baits his opponent into coming into the net and then hits some amazing pass from outside the trams.

Eh...Radwanska's strokes are as flat as Golovin's body:tape:

Yes, but she does a lot of slices and moonballs and angles. Simon just gets the ball back.

No. Aga is amaze, Gilles is suck.

I'd give a more thought out answer if Simon even warranted the waste of finger power.

To me Agnieszka's game is attractive to watch: so varied, so intelligent. And there is nobody like her in the Top 100. Power is killing women's tennis, in my opinion. I will never enjoy it even though Serena and her sister Venus can combine power with intelligence, and when they are on, they can produce amazing spectacles on the tennis courts.

By the way, I don't find putting her into the same bag with Simon convincing.

I enjoy watching Radwanska while Simon's monotonous game is killing me every time I accidentally catch his match.

Their playing styles are pretty similar. I watched Simon at the Rogers Cup, and he pretty much just keeps the ball in play, going for the occasional winner. I haven't seen Radwanska play much. What's her playing style like? I doubt she plays the same as Simon.

there similar. simon is so hot, i have no idea why im so attracted to him. his game isn't very exciting but the fact that im too busy drooling over him makes up for it.
