    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

    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.
