TOPSPIN: Expect the unexpected when it comes to Gernot as he continues to surprise Tech coaches with skills and touch...has continually improved each season he's played with the Golden Eagles...plays the game well and learns more and more after each practice or match...runs the court well and shows bursts of quickness allowing him to come to the net when he has to...has fundamentally sound groundstrokes...speed on the court helps him in singles play as he runs points down...strong serve with power, accuracy and touch...deep groundstrokes with pace from each side...can bang from the baseline when needed, but enjoys playing a serve-and-volley game...hits with heavy topspin...accurate from either side with forehand as his big weapon...can score with his forehand from anywhere on the court...plays a good doubles game and uses his skill at the net to his team's advantage...communicates well on the court and poses a tough target for opponents to pass...should stay among the top players in the Tech lineup, more than likely keeping his No. 1 position.
