Seriously though I don't like the emulating idea. It just doesn't work to help improve at rec level. I'd say take lessons or study more systematically on internet. and practice and play a lot. watch pros play just to enjoy and maybe set a direction but emulating some random details most of the times fails to achieve anything to help improve
agreed, emulating players may help if you look at the big picture of the stroke but not random details. more like imitating a players style
if there are some technical details that you want to incorporate in your own game, chances are, these details are widespread thru the atp and not limited to certain players
