Which players do you think have the mose ugly, unattractive, ungraceful games?
My picks are;

Bovina : She has power and intensity but her technique is rough.

Sharapova: another Russian with loads of power, but she has atrocious movement. I flinch everytime she moves. If only she could just stand still and look pretty and win matches, thats the only way I could like her game.

Anyone I missed...

Sharapova has the most beautiful game. Not too sure about ugly game, maybe an american player.

Like most of the bigger girls, Molik's game looks ugly when it's off. But she played beautifully against Cohen Aloro when her game was on.

...

Sharapova doesnt have an ugly game! She's just not on top of her game on the US Hardcourts. She had the MOST beautiful game on grass.

Depends what u mean by ugly.
None of the above have real "ugly" games when they are on, but for sheer unattractiveness I will go with capriati ,she moans and whinges ,blames everybody and thing but herself when its not going well, forever berating umpires and she looks
like a bloody great walrus stomping around the court ,it really is horrible to watch lately,she can play great no doubt about that but the expressions on her face make it look like she is hating every minute ,and its reall hard work ,never have seen her smile
she just unfit right now.

Well, even though I think that no player has an ugly styl of play, otherwise they wouldnt be pros...

But, I must say Kristina Brandi has WEIRD shots. When I saw her play against sharapova I couldnt help ask myself "how the hell did she make it to pros?"

Her backhand is always hit out of time, looks like a kids backhand.

Clijsters - She does nothing whatsoever on the court to excite. When she hits winners they're muscled from so far behind the baseline she's practically being propped up by the ball girl. Her game has developed into a replicate of a certain Lleyton Hewitt - and it's not pretty. It's pretty boring.

Dementieva - I'm not even going to mention her serve. I'm talking about her backhand, which, though reasonably effective, somehow looks very much like she has no precise idea where it's directing the ball. Her forehand is a big weapon, and indisputably the reason why she's had more success by the age of 22 than most, but, once again, when she hits her forehand it looks reckless, like she's no idea whether the ball's going in, or out.

Clijsters is quite boring, but I do like her splits :p

She just hits makes for others to miss - she doesn't have a shot that make you go :eek:

Mauresmo : her game is too much based on defense (and I hate those moonballs)
Martinez.
Davenport and Hantuchova (but only when their opponents make them move).
Dementieva : what a wonderful game ... ... but her serve is horrible, and when she often makes 2 DF in a row, it's a bit boring.

justine&coria.....momo's game is based too much on defense? I think that's rather irrelavant to this thread.

Magui Serna played so awful last night that even the commentators on Sky Sports were laughing at her. :o but her game was just ugly last night coz she can play some serious tennis when she's on.

but I do agree that Elena Bovina's game looks ugly. I think her ultra-ugly grunt just adds to it too.I watched her final against Dechy the other night and just found her boring to watch aswell.

Sandra Kleinova is another who's game certainly aint pretty. her service motion is the weirdest I have seen :tape:

Funny how they seem to go in most of the time, then.

it doesn't matter if the player has an 'ugly' game so as long as he/she wins. One may possess the most 'beautiful' game and yet, not win pretty adds up, doesn't it?

Watching Roger is like watching a ballet or an opera. So high class, so breathtaking, so...perfect. Even when he is off:o .

Personally, I think Venus' game is kinda ugly to watch, cuz her technique is so messed up. Even her two superb, kill shots, the backhand and first serve, are technically bad to me.

Oh listening to LD's match is almost better than listening to really good music:o . Swish, swish, swish, swish. Soooo clean, so perfect:D :bounce: :hearts: .

Lol Lindsays game is by far the least ugly game ever---she is the cleanest hitter of the ball ever on the WTA & has perfect technique on every shot. She's one of those players when you see her hit a forehand or backhand you go "it's textbook." Perfect.

for women it has to be sugiyama and myskina, they just try to get the ball back in play. but the person with the ugliest game has to be Hewitt. after watching him yesterday, i know why i really dislike him.

i agree, sharapova has un ugly game...those shots she hit at wimbledon...where shed slap her wrist and bring her racquet directly up right after she hit the ball ( the commentators were talking about how she doesnt follow through )....and then watching her shots...seems like everytime she hits a shot its a risk whether its good or bad....she needs to follow through, get in good stance and hit more fluidly...not just literally wack the ball ...her serve is ok though...i dont mind watching her hit them..but the rest ...lol..i dont like it personally

...davenports game goes without saying, everything is technically BEAUTIFUL...the service motion, the impact, the positioning, the clean hitting :)

...i dont really like farina eli's game...boring to watch in my opinion
