Most of this talk is really just kidding between me and Mikeler because if I cant beat him - it doesnt matter what style I play - he is better than me.

But tennis does boil down to styles and matchups. Some guys games match up better with other styles or games.

Goran, I like playing guys like you. Two balls in and the next one hits the fence. LOL

Our last match I think was more of me keeping the ball low and hitting short angles so that the geometry did not favor you blasting those flat shots by me.
