The best current mover on clay is:

Without a doubt Jelena JANKOVIC.
It's a joy to see her slide on the clay.
She's always stable on her feet when she hits her groundstrokes, and knows how to "brake"


Anyone disagree?

Re: The best current mover on clay is:

She's the most graceful mover in my book, especially on clay. It is lovely to watch, like ballet

Re: The best current mover on clay is:

I agree.

An honourable mention should go to Ana as well. She's a great mover on clay.

Kim moves amazingly on clay, don't forget about her.

Re: The best current mover on clay is:

i enjoy watching carla suarez navarro the most on clay, but she is out unfortunately. So, Jelena will have to do.

Re: The best current mover on clay is:

i always felt green was easier to move on
but jj does move very effitianly on all surfaces so it's not a surprise.
dementieva used to move very gracefully for all that hight.

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.

Re: The best current mover on clay is:

JJ is a great mover... just wish she'd hit out more. Zvonareva is a close second, IMO.

Absolutely, although I dislike her, Jankovic is certainly the best mover on clay.
