I'd say Djokovic. People say del Potro, but I think Djokovic because my serve isn't as strong and I am more about consistency these days. I used to try and hit winners all over . And I have the same racket as Nole

Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

First I said Ivanovic. Now I would say Tanasugarn/Ivanovic mix. I hit a very flat game with little topspin. I have decent (at best) footwork and still the big serve and DTL forehand.

Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

I would have to say im a combo of Stosur/Schiavone

Good Kick Serve, with a reasonable first serve. Very hard and heavy forehand, i dictate play alot off the forehand and come into net behind it. I serve volley a reasonable amount and have a good volley, although not so much the first volley(need to work on this) My backhand is single handed with a reasonable slice to try to change things up.
I just make way to many cheap errors.

Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

Jankovic, although of course I'm nowhere near her consistency. Backhand down the line is my best shot.

Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

I have no idea.

I hit a very flat, hard forehand with little to no margin. It's my weapon and wins me loads of points (can also lose me a few if I'm having an off day), and opponents can never read where it's going. I'd like to hit with a bit more margin, but hey, if it ain't broke...anyway, that's my stock shot and it's a fairly reliable stroke. The rest of my game sucks. My backhand (naturally a double hander) is pathetic, as I am such a pussy on it I usually just slice it. My volleys suck, and my serve has reasonable pace but shocking placement. I defend quite well, but am naturally an aggressive player, particularly off the forehand as I will always run around to hit it

So yeah. I have no idea...put a bunch of players in a blender, press start, eliminate their talent and voila. You have me.

In a way, sort of like Stosur or Djokovic I guess

Re: Which pro does your game compare most to?

Totally Sharapova style.

Big 1st serves,large no. of DFs.
Huge returns,not so fast movement,Different but effective Backhand and Huge Forehand.
Not so much into swinging volleys though,I prefer smashes.
