^ I certainly would. Would make my life a whole lot easier if he had a serve like that...
It's somewhat true though that these tall, big servers usually lack a great ground game and movement and rely on their serves far too heavily. But that doesn't go for Janowicz at all IMO. I thought he moved very well on court, especially for his height.
I get the feeling that some people on here despise whoever poses a challenge to Andy (at least if it's a younger/unproven player), because they don't like to see him lose. That's okay, but there is no need to insult players just because they posses a powerful serve. I'm not really a fan of that type of game either, but every player has his strengths and weaknesses.
The only thing I don't really like about Raonic is his arrogance in interviews. I thought he was a little disrespectful prior to the his USO matches against Andy and Blake, saying every match is on his raquet, basically. I'll give him the benefit of the doubt for now, as he's still pretty young.
I think there is something in what you say about our feeling being coloured about players who beat Andy, but I think its more complicated than that.
For one, Murray fans are by self-selection, the type who prefer the variation players to the servers. And while it's not fair to condemn players for natural gifts like gigantic physiques and powerhouse arms while seeing defensive natural gifts as more "virtuous," the former come off as getting "free" points which *feel* unfair.
And for me that's what it comes down to. As a tennis spectator, what gets my heart pumping is the uncertainty, the feeling that things could swing the other way any moment, that you're not safe til it's over. When every game is 3 minutes of one-sidedness, I switch off.
I'm not in any type of denial that the new big servers will be Top 10 and very soon. After all, nearly half the top 10 are over 30, and all are over 25. It's just that I'm not seeing as many variation players coming with them, and for me, selfishly, I think their era of tennis dominance will therefore be very boring, like I found the Sampras era, and the Federer era before Nadal, Djoko and Andy to be.
