Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

I guess I'd be Wozniacki, I'm very good defensively and I have a good backhand. My serve is average and I still have to learn to attack more with my forehand. I come to the net occasionally, not that often. Also, I'm trying to get the backhand slice into my game, but still practicing on that

In practice I can hit it hard and fairly accurate.

Really? Exactly like hers?
I also hit really hard in both practice and games and usually it works out, but i do still make a lot of errors. I also copied her serve which is really uniquely flat. Do you do the bouncing short steps too before you are about to smash a ball?

Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

I'm still rocking the Ivanovic-Clijsters-Zvonareva mix. Serve (sans ball toss) of Ivanovic, forehand of Zvonareva, backhand of Clijsters, aggressive nature of Ana...toughness of Clijsters (on and off, lol).

Don't "bash" Rezai or she'll do it right back. Imagine if she played squash or something where it was easier to hit the ball in.

Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

My serve is like Sharapova's - big first serve with a terrible, unreliable, double-fault prone second serve. My ground strokes are very, very flat and hard with little variation.

My ground speed is probably like Serena's - lazy but I can run if I need to.

On-court personality is like Myskina's - extremely aggro and fiery at times. I will stare someone down and blame them. After I lose an easy point I usually stare at the umpire in disbelief.

Mental toughness is that of Chakvetadze - I crumble under pressure and will readily cry (inside at least)

It was sort of a joke, but my shots are similar. I am the anti-pusher.

No bouncing though.

I don't have much experience- hopefully I can cut down on errors with more play.

Edberg. Mostly because I copied him slavishly growing up.

Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

My service motion is a lot like Zvonareva's, and I don't really know my game. Probably like Azarenka's/Li Na's? It's the false pretense that my game is based on aggressiveness when it is really based on getting balls back, feeding off of pace, and redirecting it. I usually win points that way. Sometimes, my ROS is explosive like Kvitova's...or so I'd like to think.

Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

I play like most Australian players because I've trained here so long.

Looping forehands, slightly flatter backhands, big serve, rarely try and volley unless I have the best approach. My backhand is stronger but my forehand is more consistent. Since starting uni and reducing my tennis commitments my fitness and muscle mass have dropped, once I used to scramble for the ball and try and force errors out of my opponent but now I am lazy and just slap...

essentially I am a bi-polar styled tennis player.
