I've often been told by the guys at my Tennis club I play like Agassi(movement and strokes). Should be b/c I STUDY his every move. Now, if I could just be as consistent as he is...I will join the tour! LOL (easier said than done)

Justine Henin, my backhand when it's on looks identical to hers but my forehand is a little more flat than hers.

I also feel like i play a lot like her since i'm only 5'9 (pretty short for the mens side) so i have to rely a lot more on slicing and dicing, and my footwork.

I had 2 hands on each side before Monica did, so I've always suspected she drove by my house in rural South Carolina where I grew up and copy catted me once she saw me hitting against the side of the house! :o

I have Myskina's 'see it, kill it'. I can see the winner I'm going to hit before the ball comes over the net.

I go to the net like Hingis. On any short ball. But also like Hingis, but I can't get there if have consistent depth.

My forehand is like Jenn's. Open shoulder, big backswing.

I hit both two handed and one handed backhands, open or closed stance.

My volleys suck, my overhead sucks, my serve is mediocre.

Everyone says my backhand is exactly like Venus's .... but as far as my playing style i would have to go with a venus/clisters combo Im able to hit winners if I choose to but I think im a little more comfortable being more defensive and waiting for the opening. Mt Backhand is more consistent but both stokes are very solid ... I have pretty good volleys ... I def could have a better second serve but it is coming along nicely

I would say Kim. Coz even though my forehand is strong but I can easily make unforced errors, and my backhand is weaker, but it's more consistent. :)

Everybody says that my forehand is like ASV's, and my movement is like Pierce's , my serve is similar to Dementieva's, and my backhand is like Stevenson's.

Im playing like venus...I love ehr game and im sure it is cause i love playing the game i play right now...I think my backhand is between Venus and Daniela though, i have the same backswing than Dani! My only difference with Venus...My first serve! lol

Mary Pierce, though I certainly don't generate as much power as she does. I'd say we also have the same mobility, which I think is slow-medium. Mary isn't as slow as Lindsay IMO (when she's fit).

LindsayRocks89
May 4th, 2004, 11:18 PM
well my serve is like jen's, my backhand is like pretty much identical to Andre's, my forehand is like a Serena forehand with more topspin, my volleys are like Lindsay's.

Hmmmm, maybe Nancy Loeffler-Caro.

But I have my own ways of sucking. My serve is truly abysmal. About a year ago while working on it, like it says in my sig, on two separate occasions my toss went up, I swung, I missed, my toss came down and hit me in the eye. It hurt like hell the second time, and that was the end of that lesson. At my next lesson, I sprained my ankle badly and couldn't play for three months. Coordination may not be my forté, but I love tennis. :hearts: :tennis:

Funny, but I'm kind of a weird hybrid of Zvonereva and Srebotnik.:confused: I have that same almost late, big backswing on my forehand like Katarina and since I've learned the one handed slice backhand, I can do that too. My two-handed backhand looks like Vera's because sometimes I can't tell where it's going either:lol: . My serve also looks like Srebotnik's too--high toss, little knee bend and then launch myself into it. I wish I could hit Serena's forehand, Venus/Seles backhand, Lindsay's serve and Hingis' volleys. Oh well, c'est la vie.:wavey:

If you compare my game to a WTAtour player, I'd say Jelena Dokic (when she was playing good tennis in 2001). I hit my backhand like her and both of my serves are quite flat also. My teammate was commented today how there is hardly any difference in the speed of my first and second serves. I hit a little more spin on my forehand than Jelena does and it is definitely my best shot. Also like Jelena, I don't like going up to net but I am a very aggressive player. Also, I hit good dropshots like Jelena did back in 2001.

I play a lot like Alex Stevenson. :bigcry:

I rely a lot on my serve, I have a pathetic backhand, and poor movement.

:yeah:

I also play like my idol (except I am right handed).

ive got every shot in the book, ive got the power (big groundies, and 1st and 2nd serves), i have good slice on shots and serves, i can mix up my shots and serves, i can play with topspin or flat strokes, i have good hands and am at net, i have great returns, i have a tennis mind also and im very quick around the court. my downfall is concentration and knowing when to hit what shot and being impatient is also a big problem i have and consistency but i think thats due to my lack of concentraion and impatience.

who's game is mine most like? um im not sure, it changes from match to match. sometimes i'll just go out and rally other times i'll go and blast them off the court. at this point (ive only been playing for a year and a bit) i dont really know what sort of game i have, im still developing and im not playing at the level i need to to improve and develop my game.

My teammate was commented today how there is hardly any difference in the speed of my first and second serves..

Me too! I hit my second serve just as hard as the first, but some days it's double fault after double fault. It's good when it clicks, though.

I hit a one-handed backhand, and win some good points off it. My forehand is lousy, though.
When I was playing one of my serve-and-volleyer friends, I discovered that my lobs were very effective against him...

And I can't drop shot to save my life...but I can run like hell to retrieve a drop shot if someone tries one. In a lot of my matches, my opponent stands there thinking he's won a point after a drop shot, but then I dash from the baseline and somehow get to it. Definitely happy with my speed!

Um...what player does this make me? :lol:

Hmmm I'm an aggressive pusher/counter puncher that has a steady forehand but a big backhand (its the go-to shot). Strangely enough I have a nice slice forehand to mix up play :D Movement is above average but not exceptional. As for the net, I try to incorporate an all court/net game but my volleys are just eh okay...lol just hit to the backhand volley and all miff it up :D

Serve? What serve! :D

New
May 5th, 2004, 05:33 AM
Erm can anyone help me?

I'm only good at keeping the balls in and if it's too fast i will most likely hit out or to the net... but i try to keep balls in from all over the court... and most of them are moonballs.

Any player that sounds like that?

Venus Forever
May 5th, 2004, 05:40 AM
My game is exactly like Venus when she plays Serena.

Passively aggressive.

I don't know, I can hit big, it's just, I'm afraid or something. Like, I rather have the other opponent beat me with their game, instead of me losing with my errors. It's strange, I can hit winners, but I rarely go for them, unless I'm perfectly set up for them.

My forehand is like Chanda's except it's ALWAYS hit deep. I really drive through the ball with my left arm on the 2-hander backhand, so it looks something like Rafael Nadal's backhand. My service motion looks similar to Roddick's, but I end up following through like Rubin :eek: (left arm flails behind me)...oh and I DO NOT make contact with a bent elbow like Rubin :eek: Chanda should really get some :help: for that...in between injuries of course :tape: :help:

Aerien
May 5th, 2004, 08:55 AM
Mary Pierce of today. :o
(I even copy the service motion without realizing it sometimes.)
I have an extreme western grip.
My backhand is like Conchita's though. I try not to moonball but it just won't stop.
I alternate between double-handed and single-handed backhand.

Nothing wrong with a few moonballs to spice up a match ;) As a matter of fact I like to throw in a couple double faults to spice it up even more :lol:

I get nervous enough during Conchita matches.

"Will she? Won't she? Will she? Won't she?"

Concerning moonballs, sure it's good but when a single handed flat backhand shot is becoming rare and moonballs are becoming the norm.......well, I worry sometimes. :o
I've been experimenting with just slicing the ball now if I do a one-handed backhand.

I would say my game is like Myskina's, Poor serve, good groundstrokes and good at the net when i'm there (which is unlikely).
