Spadea has a funny style. He's got that great backhand, ok forehand. He'll hit a forcing shot, move into no-man's land, and just hit groundstrokes from there. He won't hit winners or really even unreturnables. He'll just like continue the rally from there, not come to net, and eventually win the point or get pushed back. Funny style, but it kind of works.
Still can't like him so much, but it's nice to watch someone super consistent construct a point. Still nothing like nalbandian though.
