Hi Yall, I was reading through some magazine "Tennis" today, and found 1 article catching my eyes. The magazine's from april 2007, Page 60, article name, The Andy Rodick Interview. When Andy was asked, "Are you surprised guys don't pressure him, chip and charge, that kind of thing?". Here "Him", meaning Federer. Andy said, quote: "I'm going to break it down for you, What's the primary difference between now and 10 years ago? It's not equipment, dude. Roger uses the same racquet Pete used, I 've used the same racquet fro eight years. The only thing that's different now is the Luxilon strings. It doesn't make you hit harder, it just allows you to take woolly-mammoth swings all day and the ball still comes down. But surface-wise, everything is going slower,. So that puts the emphasis on returns and movement. What's the point in coming in if you're playing in a sandbox? Guys today are fast enough as it is, but give them the extra halfsecond to hit the ball and it makes a great difference. There's this obsession with power, alot of talk about serves, but I was the only big server at the Masters, so I guess it's a 52-week coincidence. It has to go back the other way, just to find a happy medium. It seems there are a lot of similar players out there now, running and hitting, running and hitting. I think a faster court would create a better mix of styles." Quote. You see what I am seeing here?
