Does idolizing a player necessarily mean patterning your game (or on-court behavior) after him/her? I think especially of McEnroe and Laver; while they were both nominally serve-and-volleyers, there is some difference in both game and, er, attitude. Or even just further on the WTA 40-Love thing: there's Martina Hingis saying Monica Seles was her idol growing up, followed immediately by Monica Seles saying Martina Navratilova was her idol. Not much similarity there.
