The following observations are of course my personal view and do not claim to be the “truth”!
Here comes Adam Pattantyus (Hungary):
- good backhand defence
- good footwork
- good forehand defence with occasional use of long pimples
- good choppy forehand push
- very good forehand topspin against backspin pushes
- great variety of good forehand serves often getting him an advantage to get in with a big forehand topspin.
- good twiddling of the bat when pushing on the backhand
- Counter forehand topspin to weak and inconsistant
- cannot smash or kill the ball with the forehand in a very consistant manner
- backhand defence on slow and spinny topspins goes up too high too often
- no great variety of backhand serves
- has sometimes problems returning topspins played into his body.
- no means of killing off blocked balls when he attacks
- has problems returning serves with no spin into his backhand when using the pimples
- should try to defend with the backhand taking the ball lower/later when confronted with heavy spin
- should try to counterspin on the forehand with more sidespin if more consistancy is not feasible in fast counterspin rallies
- should try to get greater variety in backhand serves
- should practice taking topspins into his body mostly with the backhand (long pimples)
