Smooth Movers: Myskina, Jankovic, Golovin -- Let's discuss!!! - Worship Thread :D

They all have similar games:
1. Graceful Movement
2. Small Body Frames
3. Relatively, not much power, but can crack powerful winners at times
4. Win matches usually with lower unforced errors AND lower winners than their opponents
5. Somewhat weak servers... not so much tati
6. Relatively good return of serve
7. Fairly comfortable at net... not so much tati
8. Great Defensive Games
9. Dramatic personalities, though they are dramatic in different ways

They still have a lot of differences though such as the type of shot they hit! (ex. Myskina hits flat whereas Jankovic is more loopy/top spin and Golovin is somewhere in between)

So..... who do you like the most.. ?

They all symbolize what is called feminity as a stereotype
Lack of power and craftiness... (especially, Nastya). Btw, I'd add Martina to this list as well...
I prefer an open strenth...like Sisters or MS .

Re: Smooth Movers: Myskina, Jankovic, Golovin -- Let's discuss!!! - Worship Thread :D

You couldn't see much "smooth moving" from Tati, rather excellent anticipation. Tati doesn't red-line anything, but her serve is a lot better now. I like her game.

Jankovic reminds me of Capriati. Everything is so fast paced, from the groundies to how quickly she moves and prepares between points. Her serve looks like Capriatis also. She is a big hitter, but is a smooth mover for sure.

Nastya wasn't doing much moving either in that clip lol! She seemed to be dictating points and surprisingly smacking drive volleys (which is very rare for her to even develop points to come in). Nasya hits flatter. Her serve is sent down like a dart, with placement not the best, but hey it's clay - aces are harder to come by.
