I watched Tsonga play Roddick last night preceded by Nalbanian and Murray. Today it was Davydenko vs Nalbanian followed by Blake and Tsonga. Blake is one of the fastest men on tour yet Tsonga is slamming shots past him. He is the new future of the game. We got a person with phenomenal size, speed, and power. He has a Roddick serve, Blake speed, and Federer shot making. It's awesome to behold. How do you teach that? I have no clue.
Roddick is playing surprisingly well. The Roddick-Tsonga match was a better match than Blake-Tsonga. I never realized how much of a weapon Roddick's serve is. I thought it had become passe in this realm of massive servers, but Roddick's serve is still strong. Although I don't agree with Roddick's incessant net rushing--the man's volley is just not that good, but I prefer his net rushing to his backhand.
Nalbanian, Davydenko, and Murray. Of those three, Murray seems to have the most upside. Nalbanian is a talent--but he's kind of slow to me--but not by much, compared to Blake and Tsonga. Nalbanian just never really impresses me with his journeyman like groundstrokes, on par with Davydenko. Murray can play really well, but he's very young. Sometimes, he is great. Last night, he wasn't.
Keep an eye on Tsonga.
