Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

Kaia Kanepi for sure, not so much in technique but more in the style she plays. Big serve but having the double fault count keep up with the ace count most of the time. Big hitter with decently heavy top-spin on the forehand with a more flat backhand. Also able to get to more than may first appear. Net play has been and always will be a work in progress.

Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

Now Mandy Minella? Probably, serve is okay most of the time. Forehand is the main weapon, sometimes its so off I cannot get any in, sometimes its really good im hitting so much winners off it. Backhand is also okay, although it is more consistent then the forehand. Movement is really good (not sure about Mandys)

This was my post from August last year, lol so much has changed in my game My forehand has actually become a weapon, tried a new swinging motion and now I got it. I can hit it pretty flat and it can do some damage. I now kind of master the backhand slice but still need to improve. Also my serve has improved so much I have a kind of Serena like serve motion I guess. But I don't know for sure I should let someone film me once I managed to get a lot more racquet headspeed on the ball. My next goals are to improve my backhand slice, 2nd serve and forehand dropshot

So I'm not really a Wozniacki anymore, I'm kind of a ballbasher now

Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

My service motion is slowly becoming more like Hantuchova's. Sometimes I do the long take back like Goerges's except my coach tells me not to (even though I could get good serves from it )

I'm slowly becoming like Kerber with my groundstrokes and movement.

Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

I've seen tape of my own game and my forehand looks a lot like Capriati's. I can't really compare everything else to a pro's technique

Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

My fh and bh is Venus all the way. My game, well I attempt to play like Davenport minus a big serve because mines is crap. I hit hard and deep down the middle, especially on hot days because I hate all the running and my movement is crap anyway.

Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

I have an exasperated service motion and crazy on court routines. SO that probably puts me in the Bartoli category.

I don't hit two hands on both wings though.
My forehand is similar to Stosur's, I often run round it.
By results i'm more like Simone Kalhorn to be honest

Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

Like Lucic, but with a crappy serve, less reliable forehand, 1/2 as powerful (which is quite powerful actually), and overall more erratic than hers

Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

My game resembles Tsonga's the most. I've got a good serve (In comparison to the people i play against), Good Volleys, Good forehand, but a terrible backhand. My ROS is not so good either. So i guess that sounds like Tsonga

My on court attitude and demeanor is more comparable to Del Potro. Generally calm, don't get worked up, and i tend to show a lot of class during the handshake. I've even got a simular grunt to Del Po (Though i don't grunt often. Just when i'm behind, or it's a really close match, just to add some intensity to my shots)
