The title is pretty self explanatory. I just want to settle this once and for all I was surprised how many people on these forums seem to think S&V is a more enjoyable/interesting style of play. I personally get bored watching an old Sampras match. It's not that it isn't rich with technique, but rather it's just boring to watch. Serve, ace...or 1-2 punch. That's probably 80% of the points in those matches. In today's matches, it's exciting watching people play at the baseline IMO. You never can tell what direction one person will take the ball to or how the opponent will respond to a quick change in direction once a rally is started. Don't get me wrong, it doesn't mean I want to watch Nadal all day pouncing from the baseline...I still enjoy a game with variety like Murray's (just one example). So that's my two cents on the matter. I'm NOT arguing which is a better style of play, but simply which is more "entertaining" to watch? If your job was to watch tennis 8 hours a day and you got paid for it, would you watch S & V players go at it or more baseline oriented players like the top players today?
