Can someone compare me with a pro player on each tour (ATP/WTA)? My backhand is 2-handed and my forehand, one-handed.

So that's like more than half of the tour - not necessarily Venus Williams.

Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

My game is a work in progress.
My serve has really improved but only flat serves.
Mostly a baseliner but I'm not scared of volleying anymore like I was in the past.
Two-handed backhand for normal strokes, slice and volleys.
One-handed or two-handed forehand (I can switch easily) for normal strokes. But only one-handed for slice and volleys.
Love hitting lobs and angled shots. Tend to go for a little too much at times. Love hitting with a lot of topspin but since I switched to a denser string pattern racquet, I've struggled a little with this.
Prefer to take open stance for both backhand and forehand.

Semi-western grip for forehand, semi-western grip on the top hand for backhand. Of course, all continental for slices and volleys.

Apparently my footwork is good even although I don't think it is. But I probably think that only because my anticipation is so poor. I would know someone's going to drop shot and yet I won't leave the baseline until the ball leaves their racquet. I have slow reaction, that's not I'm scared of the net. So I think that's the problem, not my footwork.

Prefer slower, high bouncing surfaces.

Who do I compare to?

Oh and I'm a "dynamic" grunter.

My game resembles Maria's in what shot is my best one (backhand) but my game resembles Henin in the point construction aspect

Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

Cibulkova, except a better, but more erratic, serve. I always go for DTL winners early in the rallies, missing about 30% of them, but getting winners or short ball replies on the rest. Hate CC Backhands though, too flat so I often make errors.

Pretty bad volleys-they go in most of the time, but really easy to get back as they bounce high. dropshots are kinda good, but not really a go-to shot.

Surprisingly I'm actually quite clutch on mps, I don't swing wild errors every time I'm down one, and I actually playing better, because I think 'Shit, I'll lose if this doesn't go in' so I play smarter and focus.

Good movement, but if I'm off balance when a shots on the other side of the court I will run like a baby giraffe before I'm balanced again

Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

I hate to admit it but my game consists of Su-Wei Hsieh's strokes, Flipkens' slice backhand, Wozniacki's shot making ability and Hantuchova's mental strenght.

Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

I've recently started practising playing very flat and hard, something a la Lisicki.
It's worked out during practice so well
I played a match against a guy I play every now and we often have quite challenging 3 setters. I started really well, hitting nice flat winners, throwing in a drop shot every now and with very little errors but my arms were dead after about 4 games into the 1st set
I ended up winning the match 6-1, 6-4 but even from this scoreline you can see how much this method has helped me with winning the match, especially judging by the first set score
I'll be moving in that direction now

Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

Jeez I posted in this thread 4 years ago, and my game has come such a long way. Used to never want to hit a BH, now it's my favorite shot. And now my serve actually works

Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

My stroke production looks like Kuznetsova but my game style is more like Jankovic. I have a counter punching style and my biggest strength is my cross court backhand instead of DTL.


Currently trying to flatten my shots out and figuring out how to create my own pace.

Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

I'm not sure...I would say before my long break from playing I was a less streaky version of Pierce...now that I've started back playing again I wouldnt insult Pierce comparing myself to her I'm sooo streaky now
