So the idea came from the article that compare Federer's style of play to the piano and Nadal's to the drums.

Seems like a fun way to explore this...

McEnroe = Violin
Agassi = Cymbals (loud from both sides)
Lendl = Trombone

Santoro - accordion. A FRENCH accordion. Such an abomination...

Karlovic - that big, loud drum that makes a lot of noise, but fails to bring anything special... besides the "BOOM".

Djokovic - guitar. Fun and entertaining, seems to have everything. Both easy and hard to use. Good for beginners and masters.
But it's still quite common instrument.

Safin - organ. Big, loud, great range. Can literally blow you off the cour... the rehearsal.
Too bad that the player is often drunk and can't hit a C for his life.


This is fun!

Timpani, you mean?

Timpani can be tuned! I think Karlovic is more like a GONG: :p

Edberg = Citar (light, piercing and soothing at the same time)

Federer...this is a toss-up betweem a Cowbell (in memory of his dearly loved cow Juliette) or a tambourine..as Federer prances around the court in his own inimitable style.

:) Yeah. Maybe that suits him more.

And yes, I thought of timpani, but had no idea how it's called in English :)

That pic is pretty funny but it should be a Wood Block in his hand. That is the sound he is used to hearing when he shanks his backhand.

How is McEnroe a violin. He is death metal.

Death metal is not an instrument.
He's all about finesse and touch. A violin suits him perfectly ;)

Actually I think he meant the bass drum, cuz there are actually many interesting timpani parts other than BOOM, unlike the bass drum, where rarely do u ever see any thing other than quarter notes.
