It would be foolish of me to ask you guys if you remember Aaron Krickstein... how could you not remember Aaron Krickstein? He is widely known as the guy who got beat by 60 year old Jimmy Connors (exaggeration ) in the US Open 4th round 1991 epic. I noticed a recent Krickstein thread, so i thought to myself, "why don't you look this fellow up bilbo, might find out some interesting stuff!" When we look back at that 1991 draw we say to ourselves, damn, how did that old man get lucky enough to play the sorry McEnroe, Aaron Krickstein, Paul Haarhaus, and some other guy who's name i dont remember... and when he finally meets someone worth while, Connors gets blown of the court. Sorry, I went off on a tangent again . Newhoo my point is that none of us generally consider Aaron Krickstein to be a GOOD tennis player. When his name comes up, what do we say to ourselves? Journeyman! Well, if we go by the facts, this "journeyman" was ranked 6 in the world at one point:shock:! And, won 9 career singles titles... 1 more than Todd Martin! I've racked my brain to figure out how we could have missed this fella, considering the fact that he's american... And i've come to the conclusion that it must've been his style of play. I mean, really, it's stereotypical modern tennis! Cross court, Cross court, cross court, short ball, attack down the line and win the point! He was just a reeeaallllyyy good factory player! I think he used a average semiwestern forehand grip (http://www.vimeo.com/2241804) with an average serve. His forehand was his best shot, and he ran around his backhand when he got the oppurtunity. Other than that, he's kind of ordinary. Am I missing anything? So, let's salute Aaron Krickstein and give the man a little bit of love... hell, i'll even mention him in my signature because he get's No Respect:cry:.
