    Do these players all, kinda remind you of the other style of play?

    1. Djokovic
    2. Murray
    3. Cilic
    4. Troicki

    All of them remind me of... may I dare say Kafelnikov? Like in his prime. Text book ground strokes. Solid first serve. Good baseliner but knew when to close out the point at the net when need be.

    None of them have a power shot like Kafelnikov's backhand, and besides kafelinkovs was/is an offensive baseliner with excellent all court capabilities, very effective at the net

    From my point of view:
    Djokovic is an offensive baseliner with outstanding defense skills demonstrated from 2011 onwards
    Murray primarily a defensive baseliner great tactician player
    Cilic is a power hitter but without an specific great shot
    troicki is just an offensive baseliner

    another offensive baseliner, Marat Safin! I just miss watching Kafelnikov. He did have a beautiful, technical yet very powerfull two hand backhand but I just missed the way he constructed points. I always rooted for him everytime he played Rios or even better yet Agassi. Ever so entertaining.
