Re(3): Technical question about back court offense

Last year, in a post on here, I mentioned whichever backcourters have the forehand, those are the teams that will win, and that's pretty much exactly what happened.

You HAVE to have a forehand at this level to win these events. It's the most offensive shot for a backcourter. That's why Leke had a standout summer, along with, of course, Irastorza and Lopez.

To see Amigorena playing over there, unfortunately, he was a virtual leave out, because all he can do is play defense the entire time. He runs around every forehand, and forces himself into extremely difficult left sides...which, as a forehand would have been a routine catch. In the end, he's so busy running around the forehand, he can't ever get in control. You will see him do this at Dania as well. He's a good player, with good power, but why he (and others) don't practice and fix their weaknesses is beyond me. Most pros do just that.
