In a nutshell, I loved to watch contracts of personalities and styles. It was so entertaining to see guys that played allcourt tennis especially when a serve/volleyer attacked a baselined. Throw in some attitude and some competitive emotion against the opponent and that is really entertaining. Im referring to matchups like Connors vs McEnroe or Kramer vs Gonzales. So many posters and emailers have told me this and I agree. This is also why so many fans now watch the classic tennis matches since so many miss this type of entertainment. If I was programming robots to play tennis, it would be very difficult to cover all the possibilities of old school tennis and soo much simpler to have them perfect baseline bashing. Think this has something to do with the tennis academies ? Sorry, starting to go off on a tangent here
