Wimbledon SF: Andy Murray vs. Jerzy Janowicz

Quote

Bad thing for Andy is that JJ is not a servebot.
The servebots are the guys with extra height and rely on this advantage to power down serves to keep themselves in matches. ie JJ

JJ would be nowhere if he wasn't tall.

Problem is, JJ also has a ground game, so he's much less of a serve bot than the likes of Raonic and Karlovic.

By your logic is Sampras not a form of servebot, just because he didn't have extra height?

Also same goes for Noserer, is he not a servebot? He's used his serve to get out of trouble a lot of times.

No, they weren't servebots. They actually had skill to their serves instead of it coming from a natural advantage of having extra height. What makes him specifically a servebot is that he would be nowhere if he wasn't tall, he would have nowhere near as an effective serve and wouldn't be anywhere with just the ground game he has.

I'm watching it all again under the red button, as I missed some of it though nerves. Much better watching it when you know the result. Less tension.

If you say so.

JJ is not a servebot. He doesn't just rely on his serve.

By your logic every one in the top 20 is a servebot because a lot of them use there serves to set up the points.

Heck Andy was 'servebotting' throughout Brisbane this year.

No the servebots are only the ones that take a huge advantage of the extra height they have for their serving and they all usually have poor return game percentages so they would be nothing if they weren't tall. These guys on serve; Raonic, Karlovic, JJ, Isner they all look the same.

Yeah i agree somewhat, comparing against Raonic tho....I think they have similar games...however i think the key is that JJ moves better than any of those other tall guys...and that gives him more potential than them.

Anyway, it will be an interesting match up...and Andy will have to tighten up his play earlier than he did today. The last thing Andy needs is another 5 setter going in against DJoko.... which , if it happens , will likely go all the way.

Lol JJ is a class above all those other names you mentioned.

His return game is improving all the time this year and it will be solid enough in the future.

Do not be worried about this.

Apart from Delpo no one has really ever had  a massive run to a final from being a relatively unknown talent.
DelPo wasn't a relatively unknown talent. He was 6th in the world and fresh off his first Masters final. Also made the RG semis that year as well, as well as Miami semis and AO quarters.

Fortunately a match against these guys aren't very tiring because the game is so serve dominated. It should give Andy a bit of a rester before the final.
