You got it balla,
Most of what he has described IS the modern game today. Play well from the BL.
Play awesome from the mid ct and transitions. Be able to volley well when it
comes down to close range combat.
Tennis has evolved much like MMA, where it started as kickboxing, then close in
ground fighting took over, followed by a much more balanced fighter who can
bring the match to his strengths and defend incredibly in his non-strengths, but
really has few to no true weaknesses.
