Both Djokovic and Murray play tennis with its foundations based on their exceptional defense resulting from the quality of their balance and movement.
Neither player is a good enough attacking player to hit through the other players defense, so their matches become survival events.
If either went on the attack they would lose like nearly every other player does to these 2 players these days.
you are 100% spot on.
these legless and spineless chimps from mtf don't really get that dr jules. and looks like we have one or 2 here that don't get it.
one other point of note: andy is a very bright chap. he knows and understands that he has to "bring it to the top guns". that is easier said than done so he does the best he can.
his forehand holds him back a little bit otherwise I think we would be see a little more aggressive andy murray.
that being said, aggression doesn't really help you win slams these days on the average.
roger is the ultimate gold standard in terms of aggression and all court attacking type tennis. and yet he has lost slams to nadal on all surfaces. in fact he is 10-20 against a guy who has made a career out of playing high percentage tennis.
both andy and nole are playing the game at its highest level. this is the future of tennis. now nadal is being left behind but that is because he doesn't want to put in the hard yards anymore. these guys are waging war on the court exactly as they should and exactly as they have to. there is no other way as you have so correctly pointed out.
I said at mtf fully 3 years ago that andy and nole were the future of tennis and nobody believed me. in fact they laughed at nole and andy. they could not insult and attack andy and nole enough there.
