Tennis still has contrast

Postby FulhamFan » Sat Sep 11, 2004 10:39 am

While just about everyone hits from the baseline, the contrasting styles has shifted from baseliner vs serve/volleyer to offensive baseline vs counterpuncher.

Offensive baseliners(big serve, big forhand) being roddick, j. johansson, phillipoussis, ancic, etc.

Counterpunchers(return of serve and chase down ball) being grosjean, hewitt, agassi, rochus, coria and several claycourters.

Federer is the only true allcourt player I can think of. Is there an all-court player that I haven't heard of that I should follow?

Wouldn't you call Henman an all court player?

That's interesting. If you asked me last year or 2 years ago i would of said he is a serve and volleyer. However his backcourt game ahs improved significantly.

He serves and volleys on just about every point so I would say he still qualifies for that. Tim and Taylor Dent are probably the only serve and volleyers left.

Do not forget Rusedski and Arthurs, they have to serve and volley b/c their groundies stink.
