Past people - Capriati and Clijsters.... Nowadays, more like Kvitova, especially being left handed and having a lefty serve.. My backhand was always my weapon - cross court, hit the lines,.. No one can touch it!

Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

I think my serve action is similar to the hybrid of Henin and Larsson with more extreme close stance.

Stand like McEnroe. Raise your racket like Henin. Bend your body like Larsson.

Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

My service motion is pretty much like Sampras'. A person who walked by when i was playing my mate commented on it.

Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

my ball toss is like sania mirza's.....high and hopeful for the ball to come down in the spot i want it to......

striking the serve and finishing the follow through is like sampras's - trying to get on top of the tossed up ball and bang right on its head using my strong right shoulder......i don't comprimise on my second serve and hit a good amount of double faults......

my forehand is my greatest strength......i hit my forehand like gonzalez, mostly open stance......i never miss off this wing......i can rely on this one shot any day.....

my backhand is a bit of a weakness.....it is a single hander......i copied henin initially and hate to say this but my friends said i hit more like federer when i hit a backhand......i mean that cross follow through to the right opening my chest......after their comments i tried to convert to double handed but the switch just din't feel natural......so i am continuing as a single hander......

i volley very little but whenever i do i try to do it like pirru, i mean those snap volleys she hits holding the racquet upwards in the direction of sky and bends to make good contact beside her right ear......

Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

After some reevaluating of my game I have come to the conclusion that I hit my groundstrokes, especially my backhand very similar to JJ's!

Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

Like I have already said in this thread the best comparison for my game are - unfortunately - Wozniacki and Errani.

Serve defenitely Errani like, other is pretty similar of Wozniacki play. And not 2009-11 but this year woz. It sucks when you play like your least favourite but I can't avoid the truth.

I'm not a superb defender, but I return a lot balls back and opponent often make an UE soon. I run for every ball and I don't hit a lot of winners. Besides my balls are often high (without top spin)and I can barely hit flat shot.

To me is interesting to see how many of you are saying that your game is similar to play of your faves. Did you start playing before knowing this players and became fans becouse similar play or what? I would like to play Masha game style but my game it's not even close to be similar.

Although my forehand is improving and I try to play tactically I still suck. I want my game to become at least more similiar to Radwanska (although I don't like her), Clijsters, Halep. I never will be a ball basher almost for sure.

Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

...in the process of doing so major strategy tweaks which will affect my shot selection and what the overall portfolio of my game looks like. needless to say, it is a tennis existential crisis what I'm going through the the moment.

Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

my serve is Vesnina like, but i am very poor at serving, especially my 2nd serve is nonexistant...I make lots of DF´s

forehand is Hantuchova like but it is very inconsistent, backhand is my strentgh, it is Sharapova like and i love playing backhand, i am very confident with that shot, it is also very deep and fast, really tough to play back

movement is my weakest part of the game, i am horrible in that, i am very slow and careful therefore i hate playing against fast opponents so i have to hit ball very hard to make winners, i am like the most brainless ballbasher

Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

last week I had another TFer coming over for a few days and we played tennis a few times...

-watching Kerber-

Me: "I think I play the same tennis as Kerber"
Dan: "mmmm...no, you hit so flat that you could be Japanese"

Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

Ivanovic. Basically a classic club player.

I will always regret learning to serve by copying Venus. So much movement. Hard to time. Gotta fix it.
