    S. Williams is better off with Mouratoglou. At least he isn't afraid of the net. And like Agassi, the Williams were mainly trained by their father.

    Nobody a little bit sane would want to eat a pie covered with dust.

    So because they visited the academy once or twice all of a sudden they were trained by bolliteri? Roflmao.

    You are right, cuz I remember nick sitting in their player box all the time.


    , the WS were trained by their father and some guys named, Macci and then later Rinesberg.

    Thanks for playing though

    Agreed with this (and your nod to Seles and Sharapova in the other post), but Courier added more all court skills to his game to avoid being uttlery overrun by the likes of Becker, Sampras an Edberg.

    It is no surpise Nick would say what is referred to in the OP, after all, he despised the expansive game.

    The thing that sucks is that the older it is, the more likely it is to lose relevance. Djokovic wasn't a complete player in 2007, 2008, 2009, or 2010. Arguments can be made for Djokovic's 2011 season, but he still had average net play. Murray is/was better at volleys than Novak.

    Novak in 2012 was less complete than in 2011, and in 2013 it seems to be leveling out.
