Re(1): Player Choices

It’s a nice list. Think Egurbi (backhand and serve) is under represented. As well as Cachin and Michelena. Also, for serve killing, Alberdi 1. I agree that Churruca (would add Boli)!best court presence. Nice sure about Zarria right side for effectiveness- it was quite powerful but , I think , ineffective against top talent. I’ll take Elorduy , Felix or even Chasio any day

Then, there are the intangibles - hard to measure clutch under pressure , fortitude , shot disguising (without cheating )playing through injury, ability to kill, shot selection etc. your field such as Ondarres, Egurbi, Boli, Catchin, Joey, Churruca, Chimela and , now, Goico snd Lopez, Had/have in spades. Honorable mention to Aritz, Juaristi , Inclan, Arra, Michelena . For example, I can’t remember Boli ever choke on game point or throwing a more difficult of a shot than needed. Also, I literally saw Churruca go days on end without one dropped ball - am I remembering this accurately ? It was mind boggling

It’s good convo in any case
