What does it mean to be a scrappy tennis player?

I am on a beginners women's tennis league and we were all talking about how the better tennis players look so graceful. I mentioned that I'm like a clod and not that graceful. My partner told me, "yeah, but you are scrappy". What does this mean?

I am known for being aggressive and having powerful volleys at the net. Just wondering if how she may have meant that comment. Thanks.

I don't know but i would imagine you run a lot and get to a lot of balls? That's the first thing that pops in my head when i hear scrappy... But if it's supposed to be opposiste of what u said u are like then i don't know.

Is there any creature on earth as unfortunate as an ugly woman?

I'd say being scrappy would be, you're not exactly the most talented, or have the best technique, but you can track down a lot, and make people play. It may not be beautiful, but it works.

Monica Niculescu is the picture of scrappiness these days.

Maybe your movement is just awkward?
