Pete could do just about anything with a ball. He hit quite a few efficient short-angled volleys and dropvolleys.

As for dropshots, he did approach with the dropper on occasion. He did not drop shot from the baseline much at all, as far as I remember.

Those of us who knew him and knew of him in jrs, then as a young pro know what kind of touch the guy had/has. He used the big, effective stuff more, to be sure.

I remember thinking of him as a nice blend of Lendl and Mac, with some Becker for good measure.
