Any thoughts on why sisters often have a close style?
Yes, this thread is worth it. We had many sisters in the history of tennis! Most of them sharing a similar style, though others probably being quite different (no example comes to my mind right now, though).
On this 1973 video, everybody would say it's Chris Evert facing Rosie Casals, right? You'd only say she wasn't moving very well that day... didn't look very confident or accurate in her shotmaking or something... but after you're told it's sister Jeanne Evert, you can only realize that Chris Evert's "style" wasn't unique. Her sister had exactly the same!
Same goes for the Radwanska sisters, who share a very similar style (but with different qualities), the Pliskova sisters, or the Williams sisters. As much as you can always see differences in their game, the first obvious thing is that their game is close or looks very similar.
