yeh but still its pretty stupid to make a topic about whos less talented than who to me its pretty disrespectful as all who have got there deserved it or they wouldnt be there i dont like a few players who are there but i still think they got there with good play.

(s)He's not asking what players are untalented, (s)he's asking who is the least talented out of all them. Big difference.

I suppose it is the ones who haven't as yet won a singles title - but to be fair if you reach the Top30 then you pretty are much extremley talented.

I don't mean to be disrespectful, and yes of course all the players deserve what they have achieved, and i would be happier about getting to the top 30 working hard than not having to work so hard because of talent. And just because some people don't have as much talent as other people doesn't mean they don't play well, it just means they have to work harder and im not being disrespectful by asking who is the least talented because getting to the top 30 is not anything negative just because you don't have much talent.

which are the criteria for "talent"? weapons, type of game/best surfaces, attitude? and where's the border between "talent" and hard work? Maybe discussing specific shots could make some sense.

I'm not feeling it from Gisela Dulko.
Sorry to desagree. What makes her less talented then the others?

Its about as stupid as discussing who is most talented, its not as if anyone is changing the world here.

And for the record, I am indebted to you for giving me permission to talk about it :worship:

I think it's a great topic and it's asking for a comparison, not asking who is untalented...

We don't need Internet nannies to tell us what to write.

Medina Garrigues - she works so hard that's why she is there, but that's cos she's giving 100%, if she would give less like most other players do, she wouldn't be ranked anywhere near as high.

Yeah I think I agree with that. She started when she was 13, didn't she?

Love your avatar btw.:)

I agree. Medina is a good clay player but she doesn't have many weapons and has one of the worst serves in the Top 50 speed-wise.

Interesting fact about her, according to her bio on WTAtour.com she learned to play tennis all by herself. Like me ;)

The other player is Kirilenko. I know she's won a Tier 2 but her game will never stand up to a hard-hitting in-form player.

omg!cant believe obatafan said gisela. have u seen her play? she has almost all the weapons. bh a bit suspect, but great serve, great FH and really good volleys. PLUS she's an all surface player. her problem is that she can never put them all together on a consistent basis. but i've seen a couple matches where she has and :eek: amazing.

JJ, she just played many tournaments to get into top 20.

Are you kidding, I saw medina play only twice and I was shocked at how well she played. And it was on hard court against two of the biggest hitters, Kuznet and Davenport. She could hit many winners against both of them and the two matches were very tight.

I would have to say Ai Sugiyama...Really hustles and is fundamentally sound...But she has no outstanding athletic talents...She plays a lot and fights hard when she is healthy....IMHO, she is not very talented...

LOL you obviously talk without knowing anything...

First of all, that WTA stat is wrong. Anabel started playing when she was 7 yo, but at 12 she stopped for six months because she would get too nervous in the court. However she returned.

Anyone that saw her matches this year against Henin-H, Mauresmo (twice), Kuznetzova, Davenport or Dementieva would agree that she has loads of talent and she can get even better results.

This topic is a every bit as valid as 'who's the most talented?'

However, by 'talent', do you mean what you're born with, or what you learn?

I didn't see her match against Kuznetsova, but I saw her match against Davenport wasn't tight 6-3 6-2. Lindsay didn't play well but still over-powered Anabel. And she didn't hit that many winners. I can see why she's reached this far due to her movement and hard-work but I don't think she'll get any further. :)

This is such an negative thread....

Also, Medina Garrigues is definitely NOT untalented....

:lol: Just to settle this, I saw Dulko vs. Medina Garrigues in New Haven, and it was one of the most entertaining matches I've seen. Dulko is most definitely talented, especially at the net, and Medina Garrigues has a terrific backhand and should be higher than she actually is.

Medina's attitude, however, is :o

most talented least talented who has the best shots who has the lausiest shots

who started earliest who started latest
somewhat intresting for tv shows
But irrelevant as to how good a player they are
The whole package determines who good somone is.
That is why we play the game. To see who the good players are
Watch the games. Watch the sport
Dissection may be informtive but it kills the subject
