Who has the most beautiful game when on?

I was just thinking about some fantastic performances over the past few months, and how beautiful many of their games are when on. My personal favourite is Carla Suarez, I could watch her match against Venus on Youtube all the time. Ive just picked a couple out, so please dont attach me if your fav isnt on it.

Re: Who has the most beautiful game when on?

'Beautiful' - interesting word choice. Very tough. A stock car is beautiful. In it's element. But it hasn't the delicate beauty of an F1 machine. In turn, if beauty must include practicality, given me an Acura Legend.

Given all that .. Ana Ivanovic. The most effective game? No. But she looks real good doing it. And I'm not talking about sex appeal. When she's moving well, and got the finesse thing going, it's poetry in motion.

Re: Who has the most beautiful game when on?

If we are judging only on esthetic then Kournikova
She had such a fluid and natural-looking game. And a great variety too

honorable mention :
Hantuchova
Radwanska
Hingis
Szavay
Schnyder

Anastasia Myskina


Radwanska - S. Williams - V. Williams - Kerber

Her match against Vera... By lord she hit so many wonderful shots, it was a fantastic match. Vera could just watch. Now if she didnt make mistakes aswell... She mightnt be a popular choice but she does have a great game when shes on.


I guess i shoulve included Schynder but her matches this year made me forget she could play well.

Re: Who has the most beautiful game when on?

Amelie. I dont think Schnyder's game is appealing at all really aside from that forehand. Venus on grass looks great and Serena at 100% can be AMAZING.

Amelie has the prettiest and most complete game though.

I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.

Re: Who has the most beautiful game when on?

Out of the players on that list for me when they are on and playing at the top of their games, I would say the most aesthetically pleasing games would belong to 1) Amelie Mauresmo 2) Venus Williams and 3) Vera Zvonareva. Having said that I should add all three of these girls can look pretty terrible also when they are not "on".

Venus I even made a thread about. When on I think she is better than Serena.

Re: Who has the most beautiful game when on?

Venus is the obvious choice, hands down.

Honourable mention to Amelie, but she can't even visualise some of the shots Venus can come up with when she's on.

Re: Who has the most beautiful game when on?

I don't like Mauresmo's game at all
ugly FH and serve, moonballs...

Out of these, maybe Vera or Jie

Anastasia Myskina
