Or we'll have to wait for another Federer 2.0, a player who has/had the shots and aggression but only has just enough athleticism to contend. I just don't think the importance of atheism on the men's side is going to die down any generation soon. It's not really about what someone prefers so much as it is accepting the reality of the sport's evolution. But every evolution has a transition point. I'm sure sooner or later they'll be more variation at the top.
The next big thing might be the return of the serve and volleyer. Imagine a John Isner type with the volleying skills of a McEnroe or Edberg. Such a player would be virtually unbeatable.

The key is that Vika plays more high-% returns against Serena and thus puts more in play (I bet you're surprised I'm approving of someone not playing uber-aggressively, huh? ). The big problem is that, in recent years, Maria (and most other women) have got it into their heads that they need to be trying to hit massive returns off of Serena's serve, because they think weak returns are always going to be slaughtered by Serena. But, actually, there's always a benefit from just putting returns in play and making Serena play. Basically, in a typical Serena service game in a Maria-Serena match, Maria takes huge, uncompromising swings at every return, and because that's a ridiculously low-% play against a huge serve, she ends up netting most or all of them, and that means Serena has just had to stand still and not play a shot off the ground, and thus goes into her own return games feeling very fresh and full of vigour and ready to attack Maria's serve. Whereas, if Maria just tried to put returns in play, even if those returns were weak and Serena ends up winning that service game to love, you've still made her consume some energy and brainpower and that means she has a little less going into the next game. That's what Azarenka has been so good at this year (Jankovic has also always been very good at it).

In fairness, I was genuinely impressed by Maria's returning in the RG final, because for once she took a return stance further back, took shortened backswings, and just tried to get returns into play and atleast get herself into rallies (which she actually won a fair share of). I think she even managed to get Serena's fastest serve of the tournament back into play. And, even though she only broke Serena's serve twice, that good returning still paid dividends in that, like I said before, the mere fact Serena was having to work harder and rally in her service games more than usual meant she had less energy (physical and mental) in Maria's service games. And I do genuinely believe Maria has potential to be a better returner of Serena's serve, because she obviously has a great wingspan and decent anticipation (she actually gets her racquet on more of Serena's serves than most players do, she just can't get enough into play), but she just needs to not be so stubborn and just try to get the rally started rather than going for huge low-% returns all the time.
Good analysis.

Re: Off Topic....Anything Goes vol5

What's this nonsense I hear about Maria changing her name to Sugarpova for the US Open?

Re: Off Topic....Anything Goes vol5

Honestly, I didn't think there was anything that could stop me stanning for this woman, but if she honestly changes her name to "Sugarpova" then that might just do it It would turn her into a total laughing stock and take away any of her credibility.

Re: Off Topic....Anything Goes vol5

Quit with the melodrama Danny.

I don't think the Slam Committee will allow it anyway, it would set a precedent where other players could change their name to Sponsors/products.

Not if she ends up winning the entire thing. But there's no way she will change her name to Sugarpova. Maria just knows how to promote stuff. People even considering the possibility and talking about that she might do this is the kind of promo for the candy that money can't buy.

She also just tweeted about the Nike Sportswear campaign, which she had previously tweeted about a few hours back but deleted it and decided to tweet it again. This woman
