Generally, the advice is to continue to do the same thing you were doing if you are up. But if the other team gets down they will commonly change tactics, like two on the baseline, or lobbing constantly. This change can be unnerving to your players if this happens.
Often what happens is that...
Federer has been to 19 CONSECUTIVE Grand Slam semi-finals. Why is it NOW that he would "choke?" I hope all these ridiculous "what-ifs" and broken logic like "if nadal gets upset roger gets upset hurr" is not how tennis players on this forum approach their own tournaments.
The last thing I bet...
Ginders and pushers are both (obviously) very consistent and can get to any ball. They are both married to the baseline.
Pushers simply put the ball over the net and into the court. There is rarely spin. They wait for you to just make an unforced error.
Grinders can use spin and placement...
The thing about Renshaw's Wimbledon victories is that in those days winning the tournament meant that next year the victor would be an automatic finalist, and the rest of players were fighting for a chance to play Renshaw.
I'd like to see how many people on this board would have done the same as Roger. There weren't any threads like this when Roger cried after winning many of his slams. Many of the expectations given are hopelessly unrealistic by people who could never imagine such a gut-wrenching loss.
Agreed. The Fed that we saw smoke DelPo and Roddick was the Federer from pre-'08. I think the advantage of Nadal's balls bouncing just a little bit lower tips the balance in Fed's favor. This final will show us just how much Nadal has improved on hard court.
