he should get first a mental coach and reactivate his thought processpound cat said:He should concentrate on gettin into better shape. The speed of serve is irrelevant if you're gasping on the court, which he was.
Having said all of those things about Dent.. I still love to watch his S & V game... Would rather watch him play.. than any baseline basher... borring.Marius_Hancu said:he should get first a mental coach and reactivate his thought process
he's not Sampras to boom on 2nd serves (many doubles)
The best match-up was some like Patrick Rafter vs the A-Train. A-Train trying to rip balls past the hard charging Patrick Rafter. Great stuff.. anyone know how many times they played.. results?North said:Yeah. Instead of just taking a little off a few 1st serves to get his confidence and focus, Dent kept trying to blast away. His tosses got too low and he looked irritated at himself overall. I think he tried to pull it together in the 2nd set but couldn't mentally. It even affected his volleys, which I thought he looked tentative on. It was definitely more fun to watch than the usual baseline bashing but it would have been great to see two really proficient S&Vers "on" and having a more competitive time. I hope he gets a little fitter and mentally controlled. When he's playing well, he's hard to beat.

S&V is a dying art.
