No one is saying they are as good as that player they are just saying which player their games are similar too. Obviously we are all no where near as good as the pros.

Then how can your games be similar?

Because you play in a simalar style, have similar stroke production or similar patterns of play???? is it really that hard to get. Obviously I dont play exactly like Mary and Lindsay but I have molded my game off of theirs. What us everyone supposed to say they play like Camille Pin or something?

Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

I wouldn't really copy any WTA player's stroke production. Very few have good technique and it's usually things that will only work for them. Serena serve is textbook, but still it's hard to copy. My advice is learn what works best for you and not because a certain player hits this way.

You cannot seriously be this dense. I swear you're often contrary for the sole purpose of being contrary.

Yawn. Clearly we arent as good as pros, its which pros game does it RESEMBLE. Obviously we cant hit with the same power. Stop being such a wet blanket. Or really stupid, maybe both.

Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

A bit of Vinci - Slice backhand, can make some damage at the net..but that´s all...If you´ll find a serve-volleyer with shitty serve hitting many DF´s per match, absolutely horrible in groundstrokes with no forehand who plays backhad one handed, two handed but MOSTLY slice, using a lot of dropshots, has pretty good volleys and is a solid net player with a good reactions, is a headcase but also can make a comeback, who is fistpumping or yelling "COME ON" after every single winning point, throwing racquets and going nuts after too many errors then this player can be compared with me...but I didn´t find any yet

Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

Steffi Graf backhand, 1h but I really really really prefer to slice. Bit like Bepa everything else

I used to have a serve motion similar to Bepa, but I've been trying to change it to more like Caro.

True. I can attest to this.

Since it's wtaworld, I think my game is similar to Azarenka.

I've heard from a number of coaches that my game is similar to Nalbandian.

I take great offense in this post. I do play like Dokic, I hit the back fence over and over again. And my backhand is very Golovin-like. Non existent.

Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

I try to copy the players' shots, I copy Hantuchova's forehand and Molik's sliced forehand. And a bit of Kleybanova's backhand.
