Who has the ugliest strokes?

Most comes on my mind:

Bartoli
Niculescu
Errani
and maybe Baltacha

Alisa Kleybanova Casey Dellacqua Sabine Lisicki Ekaterina Makarova Polona Hercog

Magdalena Rybarikova * Su-Wei Hsieh * Jie Zheng * Jamie Hampton * Mathilde Johansson * Mona Barthel * Aleksandra Wozniak * Alison Riske
Andrea Petkovic * Jana Cepelova * Petra Cetkovska * Jovana Jaksic * Karolina Pliskova * Svetlana Kuznetsova * Yvonne Meusburger * Francesca Schiavone

Re: Who has the ugliest strokes?

I don't like Cibulkova's either...
They are so flat, it seems that every of them lands in the net and most often that's the case

I can see why Monica Niculescu's name will probably come up in this thread a lot. She certainly has the most unique unusual and unorthox groundies on the tour and for many different = ugly and normal = beautiful.

Of course I am not going to disagree with any poster on this because ugliness like beauty is very subjective and we all have a right to our subjective opinions on this. But when talking about beauty or ugliness we must recognise....there is never a definitive answer, just a lot of personal subjective opinions. Personally I'm sure I will surprise no one when I say I love Monica's groundies but I do aknowledge my opinion is absolutely as subjective as everyone elses.

Re: Who has the ugliest strokes?

Kleybs

But the LOWEST ranked players usually have unconventional (called "ugly") groundies and serve motions.

^^^^ for all my ladies
