For example, a guy I know emulates federer stroke for stroke. When we play singles I destroy him, and I don't copy anybody. His backhand is just bad, and his forehand breaks down because his timing has to be very good and...well, it isn't.

I guess what im saying is, if you aren't a pro, don't hit like one.
I understand but that's not what im saying. If you think federers stroke is bad for a person to model after then don't put him. Put the pro who's strokes the average player SHOULD model after. I mean whose forehand should a 3.5-4.0 player try and model? Nole? Is it nikolas almagro?? It doesn't necessarily have to be a top pro either
