Which players are the most natural?

I would say:

Hingis - Just natural in every department
Davenport - Groundstrokes are so natural, doesn't look like she's putting any effort, no grunts with the power or anything
V and S - Athletism
JHH - Backhand
Capriati - Forehand, movement
Clijsters -
Mauresmo - Not sure either.

My favourite players:

Venus Williams
2000 Wimbledon, US Open
2001 Wimbledon, US Open
2005 Wimbledon

Nastya Myskina
2004 RG Champion

Dementieva's groundies are very natural (even if the serve aint) and she also has great
natural athleticism.

I don't think Sharapova is very natural, she just plays the trademark way. Heard the way she grunts when hitting a groundstroke

Actually it means they are putting more effort into their shots, so it doesn't come so natural. Same could be said of Serena, whenever she hits a shot hard you can here the effort put in.

Venus Williams
2000 Wimbledon, US Open

All players put a lot of effort into playing, some players grunt and some players shout and umpire, some people do other things. Its just putting effort in a different way. Doesn't mean its not natural IMO.

Something you are born with. Justine's backhand is natural, but her forehand and serve for example are not, they required alot of work.

So you mean Justine Henin Hardene was born with that beautiful backhand?
No wonder she's so goofy!

This thread is stupid...
First of all, be more specific by wot you mean in natural..
Natural beauty? Natural playing style? Natural personality? Natural make-up? WOT???
If you can't be specific, then don't start threads like these.
Movement? You mean her footwork or her movements-like touching her cap etc?
I didn't know was natural for Clijsters.
Athletism....Takes heaps of hard work and training to acquire that...
How is Hingis natural in every department?
By saying that Mauresmo looked like half a man...that's natural?
Or by showing childish tantrums while playing against Steffi Graf natural? Well, don't blame me for posting this since you said that Hingis was natural in every department.
Stupid stupid stupid thread....Are you bored or wot?
Coz if you are, then that's UNNATURAL!
