Re: Who has the prettiest strokes?

I like to think JJ's overall game is quite pretty, though her forehand to a lesser extent.

Re: Who has the prettiest strokes?

I obviously think Dokic has unreal flowing strokes.

Maria's backhand.

Ivanovic's forehand.

Serena's serve, it has a really great aesthetic.

Steffi Graf had the prettiest and most effective strokes of all time. Flawless and destructive. No comparison.

Yeah i second this, never even crossed my mind.

They even look great when she's out of position, which is pretty much always.

Her serve and topspin backhand were hideous.
