I don't like being compared to the pros because I find it to be disrespectful to them. I don't even come close to what they can produce on the court.
Secondly, the mention of me copying a pro takes away my own efforts in developing my strokes.
Also, Mr. Federer wasn't really on tv that much when I was developing my strokes in the late 90s/early 00s. I'm not denying the similarities as I have heard them from other people. I'm just saying it was through my own development and efforts.
White/black socks, ok that one I did copy. Because I thought it looked good.
