Re(1): How things have changed

Tiger
This is interesting. I remember 1981 in Bpt when my older brother ( I was too young to attend) saw Bolivar start at Bpt. My bro was a solid aficionado and reported to me that he could see how fast and clever this Bolivar from Tampa was but could not see him topping Ondarres or Egurbi. Well..... his reports changed quickly when he would come home on a Saturday night with stories of amazing catches, shot placement. You know the rest
I have only started to watch you tube videos of partidos starting a few years ago. I do not say it lightly that Lopez is an all time great. I have watched Churruca, Chimela, Soroa, Laca, Felix and played with Elorza and others. Lopez has a amazing backhand placement, power and variety- he varies spin not just speed and location). His catching and court sense are all time great (second to one or two previously mentioned), forehand is dirty but very effective. If not enough, he has a great remote for back court. He is one of few who elevates his game in the clutch (key in my opinion) and has wonderful strategic sense. All time great and best of modern era IMHO
