Petkovic, i don't like her technique and find her game a bit robotic but she's not too bad to watch, no brainless ballbashing at least, she knows how to construct points properly as well in good form (a rarity in the WTA nowadays).

Then, what can i say... I don't like watching scrubs and i don't like overrated players (Brathel, Lisucki and Hypeges):

-Brathel is overrated as hell, she proved nothing (except losing in first rounds of slams), she's relatively decent Indoor (even if it's not that difficult to beat a choking Fatboli, gap-toothed girl and Errorni Indoor), she will struggle to win matches on slow hardcourts and on clay with her slow movement, lack of patience in rallies and technical issues. Her serve won't be so efficient Outdoor too though.
-Lisucki: overrated as well, as frenchie said, she should have played Baseball instead of Tennis, she makes too many UES everywhere, is too "brainless" on a tennis court and too much of a confidence player, her mentality is sometimes really sad too.
-Hypeges: Well, i have the impression her main goal is to kill someone in the crowd but why? I really don't know... Her backhand is a particularly weak shot, she will have good and mostly bad days all her career as an inconsistent brainless ball basher with no variety: she's not a very talented player for sure.
Are you feeling better now ?
The question was about who you like most - not to work off your hate.

Re: Which of these 5 talented Germans' game do you like the most?

1) not all of them are really talented
2) as usual the most mediocre is the one the most overhyped
3) Julia at least has boobs to be a favourite among these not that much impressive players
