    is it possible for baseliner to change to s&v after a few yrs into his career as a pro (like roddick) and be successful?

    Yeah, there's an article on it this (or last?) month over at tennisplayer. Aggressive net game is the new iteration of the heavy baseline game. Once you got your angle, you come in to cut off the other guy. Roddick is doing that to great effect, and Federer seems to be doing that this year.

    Good IM glad baseline tennis is going away. Not just OS racquet power tennis anymore. Do you think with the baseline game disappearing we will see more smaller/faster players emerging with more all court players. This would so much better to watch and to learn from.
