Once Federer ends his reign, there will probably be a period of no absolute dominate force in the game. But not so long, there will be another player to emerge as the potential force to be reckon with; the new candidate for the GOAT position. But what type of style of play will he possess: - Counterpuncher? - Aggressive Baseliner? - All Courter? - Serve and Volleyer? - Crafty (Dropshots, Lobs, trickshots)? - One dimensional (only having one of the following: Serve, Forehand, Backhand, Volleys, Passing shots, etc...)? The type of game the former GOATs had been known for is as follows (correct me if im wrong): Laver - Serve and Volleyer Borg - Steady Baseliner Llendl - Aggressive Baseliner Sampras - Serve and Volleyer Federer - All Courter I believe the new potential GOAT will possess just a Huge serve and Aggressive baseline game. It seems like passing shots are becoming better, which forces players now to be tentative to come to the net. And because of this, players are volleying less and the volley aspect of the game will decline for a while, just until the GOAT after this GOAT emerges. And what about the womens game? Personally, I feel that the womens game is all about who can hit the ball the Harder and have it stay in the court more often. BUT, I think the womens game will be changing to were they will try to come up to the net more often. Women are getting physically better, not only the men. So maybe the will have that quickness and stamina to poach more often. By no means will there be a Womans GOAT S&V. I don't see that happening anytime soon. Therefore, the next GOAT's style of play for: Men is Pure power tennis (Huge Serve and Aggressive Baseline game) Womens is an All Courter So what do you all think the style of the new GOATS will be?
