Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

I have a low ball toss on my serve. I like being the aggressor off of both wings. Can hit my forehand really big at times, but my backhand is definitely my more stable shot. Movement is probably my biggest strength. I can run for days and chase down pretty much anything.

I would say I play similar to Monfils or Andy Murray (sadly)

My on-court attitude: I get really pissed off, but I conceal it very well. I usually come across as relaxed/focused. I may say a few come on's every once in a while, but nothing too over the top. I talk to myself often. I usually never let nerves get to me in important moments of a match. I just come across as very stoic/serious.

Benoit Paire is a good comparison. We have the same strengths and weaknesses.

Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

I think my game has evolved so much in the past year. I've got a reliable and heavy forehand that I can flatten for speed but only with a 50/50 hot or miss frequency. My 2-handed backhand is my weapon ala Hantuchova (Indian Wells Final style) or Puig (during the Kerber match).

My two weaknesses have to be mental game and serve consistency. I still need to work on those. On a good day I can hold serve at 40-15 or at love ... but on a bad day ... 1 DF min per service game.

And I've got the speed/flexiblity of Clijsters...splits and all.

Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

on HC and indoor I very much remind of Flavia, with a pretty powerful and accurate 1st serve and a so so 2nd serve, solid return and great movement. FH with a lot of spin, but solid and BH to finish off DTL.

on clay I just am an hopeless case, somewhat a reverse Niculescu with all slice BH and often slice FH and super topspin FH

look-wise I guess my movements look like Kerber's

I definitely suck on clay, must be the only Italian

Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

I can compare with Jelena Jankovic, Masha and Kvitova... I tried to play with left hand and every forehand diagonal was in Touches every line. But my backhand is like Sharapova's. Serve I don't know, movement Jelena's and forehand I don't know... Maybe like Harrison's.. If i'm on my best. When I play really awful, it looks like Fail Michelle..

This is till pretty much the same however with some Kerber in the mix now, I can push if I don't give a fuck and I have kind of adopted her on court attitude I alter my service motion and it was find of like Kimberly's which made it more consistent with significantly less pace but I've reverted back to my Serena motion, I'm complacent with serving doubles at least my technique will look good while I do it I really don't know who my ground strokes would compare to on a technical level because I've never seen footage of myself playing.

Harrison's forehand?! I would love to play against you.

Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

I'm also a brainless ball basher most of the time but if the other player is even more brainless than me I adopt a King Vulture attitude I really need to improve my serve though, one can't be a certified ball basher with such a shitty 120 kmh serve

I sadly resemble parts of my 3 favs: Sharapova, Dokic and Lisicki. Pretty much a ballbasher

Copied Vania's serve. It has been the easiest and feels really comfortable.

Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

Don't know about other aspects of my game but I played today and my two handed backhand was sweet and exact copy of the Williams sisters' open stance two handed backhand. I can go inside out, DTL or cross court with it - topspin or flat. I always hit like this but this is the most consistent I've ever been.

But alas, that's where the similarities end.

Forehand is not too bad but very loopy. I need to learn to flatten it out.
