Mentality would be Roger Federer: Hubert Hurkacz makes up an ideal player


Polish tennis player Hubert Hurkacz practices ambitiously to hit the perfect tweener just like the Swiss Maestro does as he grew up admiring modern-day GOAT, Roger Federer.

“My coach Craig here didn’t want me to do this shot. So I was doing a drill here, practising this shot (tweener) and he would tell me that you’re missing almost all of them,” Hubert Hurkacz told Essentially Sports in an exclusive interview.

Hubert named Roger Federer as his perfect tennis player and also perceives that Roger and Rafael Nadal are incredibly mentally strong.

According to Hurkacz, the American John Isner who has attended 12,266 aces in 675 ATP matches which is the second-highest number of aces in men’s tennis is the best when it comes to the service.

“I’ll go with John‘s serve, Novak’s return, probably Roger’s forehand, and backhand could be Novak’s as well. Footwork would be Gael Monfils, volley Roger as well. Mentality would be Roger, Rafa,” Hubert Hurkacz said.

The 23-year-old Polish star player Hurkacz played in 2020 ATP Cup and attained to the semifinal at ASB Classic and lost against Benoit Paire while at Australian Open he crushed by John Millman in the second round.
