Mine would actually be like Andy Roddicks' (and, no, I don't mean I seriously play anything like him, I just mean in terms of a general style.)

I suppose because he just had a big impression on me when I got into tennis as a late starter and he was starting to make waves in tennis. In contrast to someone like our own Tim Henman, I did find him quite charismatic and exciting to watch. I certainly studied him a lot... the abbreviated serve (of course), the fh (in depth), that style (er, hit from the b-line like a headless chicken and just waft over that 2hbh as rarely as is permissable - ha, ha.) I even played the same frame as him then (PD+)...

So, slightly embarrassing perhaps, I don't know, but that's the pro player who I maybe most resemble in terms of my game.

How about others?

Do you sweat like him too rossy :)

For me i deffo see something similar in sergiy stakhovsky world number 46 http://m.youtube.com/index?desktop_uri=%2F&gl=GB#/watch?xl=xl_b... he's pretty new on the scene a s&v with 1hbh.
But i like to think my serve looks very like Berdych and my groundstrokes like guga kuerten.
I would say Gulbis or Safin, big shots, no real consistancy :D 2hbh is much more solid than my fh :/
I started playing when i was 4 or 5, oddly i didn't really watch tennis for another year or two by which time Becker & Edberg were battling out a lot of great matches.Then Sampras came along and dominated as i got a bit older.Having recently had the "pleasure" of wathcing my serve although i was always a big Becker/Graf and Sampras fan it actually looks a bit more Edberg ish (and volleys actually)which suprised me I guess the rest of the game is an mix of all of them.(i did learn to swear in German at which stopped me getting in trouble for yelling at myself!) Having seen my first coach a year or two ago hitting some balls I was classically taught the game so it's no real suprise I guess.
