I'm looking for an effective gamestyle to adopt, and the current men aren't really doing it, for me. Of course, the WTA is slacking, now: I've looked, for a while, and I'm impressed with the mental game she plays. I also like the variety she has. It's something I've longed to see in the WTA, often. She almost always seems to hit each shot, with a purpose: as in, with it meaning to lead into a planned play; especially when she's serving. I really love Kournikova's style, too, in her prime (these seem to be the years, iinm. I loved her speed, and she's definitely among one of the fastest players that I saw. She had pretty nice volley skills, as well, and a wonderful drop shot/volley, that worked without fail. They are both pretty good baseliners, too. I imagine McHale hits weaker than Kournikova, because the latter hit mostly flat shots; but she also has great consistency. I think they both play(ed) intelligently, though. Obviously, more so, for McHale. So, if I'm to take elements of my game, should I work on my drop shot, or develop my forward moving mindset? I tend to chip/charge, enough, as it is. I'm not going to talk about each player's negatives: e.g., working on my 2nd serve is the priority, right now; and so is keeping calm, against players that I know are much better than me. But I just need a diverse style, to accentuate my game. So whose style would be more effective, in general? Whose style "has" been more effective, in general?
