rward on skis all the time. Ahh...I'm just really interested in what these sports can teach eachother.
Tim Prapong said:
I think the pro has another very good point. Footwork is really a big minus nowadays. Compare the footwork of McEnroe/Connors to this generation of Roddick/Querrey/Isner. That footwork is developed on the clay. Federer, Nadal, Djokovic, Davydenko their footwork is distinctively made on the clay. You can see they have the ability to slide and they have greater economy, using footwork that uses balance similar to skiing.
As for Serena and Venus, they are great sluggers and that is where U.S. juniors are/have been going. I hate to say it, but slugging with fair footwork goes farther in the women's tour. But you don't see the slalom like pivots in U.S. tennis, either male or female.
You and I know the USTA has plenty of money to build some courts. As much as they are charging for memberships and tournaments...

Nadal or [Novak] Djokovic would have been so successful in the era of serve and volley, but Federer could have played,” Becker said at the Hindustan Times Leadership Summit in New Delhi over the weekend.
He added that Federer’s variety puts him ahead of Nadal and Djokovic.
“The reason why Federer is still successful at the age of 31 is because he has got a good technique,” Becker said. “He can play from the baseline and when he has to, he can also come to the net more often than other players.”
As for whether Federer is the best player of all time, Boris was more inclined to hedge.
“It is the ultimate question, but unfortunately it has no answer,” Becker said. “Roger Federer has won more tournaments than anybody, but it remains unknown if he would have beaten a McEnroe, a Borg, a Laver or me.”
