For this kind of rally...Amazing point.

I do like a fast court. Wimbledon is generally faster, and creates some amazing matches. I like the Wimbledon/hardcourt pace. I don't think it's slowed down to a point where the matches aren't interesting anymore. Being a tad faster wouldn't hurt, but I don't mind either way.

Tennis right now is mostly all about fitness, someones physical strength and how hard they;ve worked in that regard. So having the courts slower really does show the differencce between those who obviously put everything into fitness and being in the best shape they can be to win these two week tournament and five hour matches, and those who aren't as fit.

Default re: Tennis Discussion Thread

on another topic, who are your favourite players from ATP and WTA, and why do you like them? Just something different to talk about.

Well pretty much all mine are in my sig, but here's why i like them.

Tsonga- Probably the most attacking player on tour atm. Very entertaining to watch, and seems like a great guy off court too. His on court attitude is very good too. I became a fan of his after AO 2008. I would like to see him have more belief in himself, and be more consistent, because he has the game to beat the top players and win a slam.

Del Potro- Liked him after US Open 2009. But everytime i see him play, i like him more and more. Plays agressive baseline tennis, and is a real classy guy. Hopefully he can return to form, and put all these injury issues behind him because he can win another slam.

Shvedova- Another good player to watch, and has an all court style. She seems like a great person too both on and off court (always smiling) On top of that, she is very cute I hope she can achieve some sort of singles success in the future, but she'll need to stop choking for that to happen.

Nishikori- My most recent one, but i like Kei's style. He's primarily offensive, and seems like a good guy too. Only thing holding him back is his physical side. He doesn't have the physical capabilities to back up his game at times, but he's certainly a potential top 10 in the future

Nalbandian's been one player I've loved to watch for years. His technique is absolutely superb. He hits a ball on both sides so cleanly. It's just a pity his fitness isn't up to the same standard and he's had so many injuries that disrupted his career that promised so much.

Like you said above about Tsonga, he's so exciting to watch. He can be incredible or he can be a car wreck like he was against Klizan in the US Open. When he's on it though he's the most entertaining to watch bar none.

Laura Robson now will be one to watch out for. Her new coach has clearly had a massive impact on her game. She's not going for the spectacular shot as much now but still going for and hitting some big ones that Clijsters & Li could only stand & admire. Those two wins will be huge for her moving forward, and she's still only 18.

Lisicki too is probably the most 'Tsonga like' player in the women's game. When she's on form she's fantastic, but she doesn't produce it enough, and at Wimbledon when she was playing Kerber and losing it, she just laughed through it!

Nalbandian is an absolute pleasure to watch, hits the ball so clean and that backhand omg!

His fitness is not even an issue, he's played plenty of tough five set matches, the problem is his head, he is a mental midget. He also seems to have bad luck with umpires and linesman.

Andy Murray: My favourite player. I just love the way he plays. Even moreso this yyear where he's started to becomme more aggressive. He's got suc variety and natuural talent, thhe way hhe channges pace is great. I also always considered him ann underdog whenn talking of the top three debate, whichh makes me want to see himm win more. Plus he's British which is always a bonnus when a players from youur hhomme country.

Novak Djokovic: My seconnd favorite mmenns tennis playyer. He's so explosive withh hhis shots. He can go from being on thhe defensive to beinng on thhe offensive at the click of hhis finngers. His runn of matchhes wonn last year really was inncredible annd remmarkable to watch. Up uunntil he broke thhrough it was the Nadal and Federer shhow, he showed up and completely turned that on its head whhich was refreshing to see.

Juan Martin Del Potro: I'm nnot sure why but I kind of disliked himm a couuple of years back. However now he's getting back to his fuul potenntial I'm becoming mmore of a fan. I like thhe way he plays, and he seems like thhe one player outside of the top four who cann kind of make a dennt and cause an impact. I expect him to win annothher slam in the next two or thhree years and thinnk himm, Murray and Djokovic will be thhe top players in the next couple of years.

Serena Williams: My favorite female tennis player. I think shhe's inncredible. Her power is out of this world for a female tennnis player and her serve is the greatest female serve of all time. It's just ammazinng to watchh hher play, and thhe differennce betweenn her annd the rest of the wommens game. The women these days absoluutely crumble under pressure annd Williams is one who doesnt. I'll be sad when shhe retires.

Victoria Azarenka: I'm becoming quite the fan. She's a lot stronger than the majority of the wommen onn tour. Both mmentally annd physically. Shhe gives Serenna quite a test which is a lot more than most. Once Serena retires, I see her being at the top of the womens game for a while.

And if anyones wondering why some of my letters are repeating, it's because I spilled tea all over my laptop yesterday... hold on, it's stopped!
