    Anyone want to try to classify the top 10 men and women into these categories?

    I might give it a shot later.

    Personally, I am a blaster, but if my power game isn't clicking I go baseline machine, but I also throw in some spin doctor junk and can counter-punch effectively if I'm on the defensive.

    So not all-court but somewhat well-rounded.

    Would someone with a smaller figure be limited to certain playing styles? I just cannot see someone 5'7" blasting away with an opponent over 6'. Extra steps and arm length are also taken into consideration for court coverage.

    Should us smaller guys resort to getting our PhD in Spin? Spin Doctor sounds very appealing after reading this post.
