Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

I'd say a bit like Bencic: same racquet, similar lazy footwork and a fetish for DTL shots. Much less accurate than her, but my dropshots are better

Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

I play a lot like Sharapova

I tend to go for winners off of opponent's serves, play hard and flat, have stretches when I'm unplayable for opponents of my level and then suddenly start to make a lot of UEs and double faults. I even sometimes hit defensive BH shots with my left hand. The biggest difference would be that my FH is my weapon, whereas my BH is a big weakness and I avoid hitting it as much as possible

Ok maybe I play like Stosur

Edit: Tho I'm only a 3.0, so my game is a work in progress.

I'd have to watch more players play, but I've been told I have a back hand like Clijsters.

1MillionthSamFan I seem to be playing more and more like Sevastova lately! Except I still need to get a forehand drop shot. My backhand drop shot is lethal at the moment - yesterday I hit three in a row, and my opponent just shook her head in the end.. So up 4-1 I felt bad and stopped playing them. My SABR is coming along nicely against players with weak 2nd serves. I'm probably playing a bit like Vinci more too except I have a 2 handed back hand to add to my BH slice, and only come to the net with the SABR or when drawn in.

Now that I've got Pure Drives, I really play like Kim Clijsters lol.

Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

My game style is constantly changing, because in some days I'm ready to work the point and go for my shots, add variety to my game (hitting slices, dropshots, going to the net - even if I don't feel that confortable hitting volleys), but in other days I simply start pushing because I also like the feeling of getting every ball back. I love running to a dropshot and I love to do passing shots, including hitting lobs. I also lack power to be the agressor in a match, so sometimes defending is my only option. So I'd say I'm a mix of Wozniacki, Radwanska and Azarenka, as I defend well, add some variety to my game and can me agressive, but need to build the point because I can't really make the difference on the first shots.

I think I said earlier I was like Maria but left handed. NO. Not sure though. I should get myself taped one day .

Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

A cross between Babos and Vika who have somewhat similar forehands anyways. Serve is like Timea and return of serve is like Vika. Forehand is more like Timea but bh is more like Vika. Tactically I am like Vika in that I don't go for winners unless it's the right ball and instead just hit relentless heavy/flat shots down the middle. The main difference is I am reluctant to finish points off at the net but I'm working on it.

Queen Vika! I'd love to have her consistency and ROS. As for me, don't know about playing like Victoria but I've dressed like Victoria a la AO'12.

My serve is consistent at best, but my second serve is super slow with little kick or slice, and i can go on DF sprees of 2-4 in a row so basically 2013 Vika

I also anticipate really well (Like Vika) , footwork fancy (Like Vika) and place the ball using topspin (Like Vika)

Conclusion: I am basically Victoria

Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

Lol when I look back on what I've posted here before.
I think I've finally found a player to which my game style is actually similar - the Possessed one!
With Wozniacki's serve.

^ I see a bit of a Pfizenmaier balltoss and Barthel's shrinking up left arm on your forehand.

First half is just warm-ups, second half is playing points out.

Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

I was able to get a highlights video of my latest hitting session, once YouTube is done processing I may post it on here to see if I resemble one of the pro's in yinz's minds.
