Yeah, there's not many players who use the serve and Volley a lot anymore.
Federer uses it as times. Tsonga uses it. There the ones off top of my head. Tsonga is probabaly the one who attacks the net the most in todays game. That is unless i have missed someone out

In the 90's, the serve and Volley was used a lot. Especially by Sampras, who as you know, was "The man" of that era.

I think they should speed up the courts personally.

Yeah, it is ridiculous how slow the courts are now. Too slow. The grass court are very slow compared to last time now.

I agree. These courts are favouring Defensive minded players like Nadal. Can't they find a happy medium

That's why I took so much notice of Tsonga after Australian Open 2008, the wya he attacked the net and destroyed Nadal, THAT"S how you beat Nadal

Allez Jo!!

He was unseeded for that tournament too, and had a tough draw. Shame he didn't win the final.

Speaking of Tsonga. He won again last night Against Stakhovsky 7-6 (1), 6-4.

Jo's ROS needs to improve. His backhand is improving, but still needs to some work.

US Open draw is today i think. So i made a thread for the US Open. Slams deserve their own threads imo. All the other tennis discussion can go in here, while US Open discussion could go in there

US Open (Tennis) 2012 Discussion thread

I think Slams deserve their own threads

The draw is made today, and the tournament is just around the corner. I'll post the draw below unless someone beats me to it.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Nah, I think it would be better to discuss it here.

I want Murray to be in the Federer draw. I want to see a semifinal match between them in a slam for the first time.

I'm Not fussed either way. We had a thread for Wimbledon, so you know...

I'm hoping that Tsonga gets drawn in Ferrer's quarter.

Djokovic
Del Potro

Tsonga
Ferrer

Murray
Berdych

Tipsarevic
Federer

I'll be happy with that. If both Del Potro and Tsonga make it through to semis, then one of my faves are in the final, which is great. Plus, there is a potential Murray-Fed semi final showdown
