Many years ago you had said, that numerous players have tried and failed at copying Waldners style of play, including yourself.
My question is, what exactly defines his style of play? Is it predominantly blocking and countering or is there more to it? And since it is so unconventional, how did it work at the very highest level?
Thanks, you've always been such a great help!
Waldner... he was able to react quicker to a lot of balls that others can't do. He also looked like he had a lot more options when the ball came to him. His touch was exquisite which allowed those options. Others would try to play those touch shots but not be able to do it. He was deceptive because it always looked like the shots he was making were easy.
It worked for him because he was playing a different ball to the one that his opponent expected often.
I would love to hear others talk about Waldner.
