I would say:

Hingis - Just natural in every department
Davenport - Groundstrokes are so natural, doesn't look like she's putting any effort, no grunts with the power or anything
V and S - Athletism
JHH - Backhand
Capriati - Forehand, movement
Clijsters - :confused:
Mauresmo - Not sure either.

Dementieva's groundies are very natural (even if the serve aint) and she also has great
natural athleticism.

I don't think Sharapova is very natural, she just plays the trademark way. Heard the way she grunts when hitting a groundstroke :lol:

Grunting=player is not natural? :confused:

Actually it means they are putting more effort into their shots, so it doesn't come so natural. Same could be said of Serena, whenever she hits a shot hard you can here the effort put in.

All players put a lot of effort into playing, some players grunt and some players shout and umpire, some people do other things. Its just putting effort in a different way. Doesn't mean its not natural IMO.

Something you are born with. Justine's backhand is natural, but her forehand and serve for example are not, they required alot of work.

So you mean Justine Henin Hardene was born with that beautiful backhand?
No wonder she's so goofy!

This thread is stupid...
First of all, be more specific by wot you mean in natural..
Natural beauty? Natural playing style? Natural personality? Natural make-up? WOT???
If you can't be specific, then don't start threads like these.
Movement? You mean her footwork or her movements-like touching her cap etc?
I didn't know :confused: was natural for Clijsters.
Athletism....Takes heaps of hard work and training to acquire that...
How is Hingis natural in every department?
By saying that Mauresmo looked like half a man...that's natural?
Or by showing childish tantrums while playing against Steffi Graf natural? Well, don't blame me for posting this since you said that Hingis was natural in every department.
Stupid stupid stupid thread....Are you bored or wot?:confused:
Coz if you are, then that's UNNATURAL!

Oh just because Mauresmo isn't natural at anything doesn't mean you have to have a go at anything. I would just like to see people's opinions and you start this :fiery:

Why don't you get a life.

patty's game is very natural, but some of comments in this thread are so ridiculous. justine was not born with her backhand. she didn't hit her backhand when she was 5 like she does now. it's a naturally struck stroke but it still required years of hours of practice to get it to a professional level.

the reality is that nobody is born a "natural tennis player" - they all required a hell of a lot of work to get where they are and some were just with different gifts which might make them appear to have a game less workmanlike than others.

And since you do not have a life, that partly explains why you'd have to be posting and starting stupid threads like these.:fiery:

I accept the opinions when there about talent. But pathetic to come here slagging off a thread just because they don't like it.

Now you're saying you don't know but maybe Mauresmo is?
This is rather peculiar don't you think?
My opinions are stupid?
Well, not so. It's the person who can't understand my post who is stupid.
And nope..You can't ask me to get out of the thread since this is the free-world. Even George Bush can't force me out of this thread! Wot more about you?
As long as there are moronic posters like you, I'm going to make it my mission to scrape every dung out of you peeps. Got it?

Be brave to admit your lackadaisical attitude in starting threads that are specific enough for the posters to understand your point. I was only pinpointing your shortcomings in your thread and you're so pissed off? That's so childish...
And nope..You were not talking about talent at all...

conchita martinez could play tennis and make it look effortless. great hands, great feel for the ball, and a very natural mover. although not fast around the court, her antipation and footwork meant she'd nearly always get to the ball and do something with it.

irina spirlea - one of the most natural strikers of the ball ever. very gifted.

gabriela sabatini - great hands and feel for the ball. made hitting with extreme spin into something of an art.

Dear this is a board for discussion about players. I didn't know about KC, but i'm sure others have some knowledge of it. You really are looking into a decent thread too much. And what about Momo - whats natural for her?

Bloody hell, let people have their own opinions man. Personally Mauresmo is talented but not amazingly talented like some players but doesn't mean others have to think the same as me. If everyone had the EXACT same opinions then whats the point of having a message board?

mauresmo is more natural than 99% of the tour IMO. her forehand may look weird but to me that suggests it is more natural. those with a good technique are less natural because they have learnt how to it that way and it has nothing to do with it naturally developing without interference from coaches.

terms like natural and talent are too ambiguous IMO to have constructive opinions about.
