Lindsay without question. It's so amazingly smooth and interesting to watch (while also being absolutely textbook).

I also love watching Serena's motion, it's very simple but extremely pretty and again very smooth.

Who has the prettiest forehand, backhand, and overhead
Forehand- Serena (creamy)
Backhand- Dani has a very fluid backhand (I would choose Justine but hers is just overexaggerated)
Overhead- Serena (best overhead in the game)

Serena - you could feel the power coming from her serve because of her motion. Very smooth and miles better than the service motion of Venus.

Lindsay - pure smoothness.

Ana Ivanovic - Great opening of the shoulders, and I like the way she winds them up to give the ball a total smack.

Serena's motion is very fluid, so I like the way it looks.

But I also really like Maria's service motion. It's just as fluid. And she always looks so relaxed before she hits it. So I'd go with Maria's over Serena's.

Oh and despite it's ineffectiveness, Hingis also has a very nice looking service motion

Jul 7th, 2006, 02:51 AM
I would say Tatiana Golovin! :hearts:

I like the little sqat she does before she tosses up the ball. :lol:

I like Kim's pre-serve motion, when she has her racquet go up then down.

Jul 7th, 2006, 02:53 AM
yes obviously since i appreciate her game i would say this but i think Patty's is the best to watch - at least before she hits it :tape:

Anna-Lena Groenefeld.

In the next tier I also like Anna Chakvetade's serve. It has an interesting kick.

1.Justine....very classic finish with full extension and use of the leg.

2.Serena Williams...in her peak years, very smooth transitions

First one that came to mind was Danka's. I know a few young player who studied it to make theirs better!

I love Lindsay's serve, because it's stylish and very effective, though it's too girly for me to emulate. Same with Serena's, Venus', Patty's and Martina's.

I don't see how Maria's service motion is "pretty". Maybe because the T.V. camera is at a bird's eye view, the look may be different, but as much as I love her, I find Maria's game effective, but far from pretty. She gets the results, but with strokes that aren't easy on the eyes. In fact, I don't mind her shrieks as much as her game :o

Schnyder - very smooth
Kirilenko - very natural and totally her own
Ivanovic - its kinda unique, simple and pretty
Dulko - her whole game is sexy lol
Golovin - obviously
Krajicek - simple, love how she does that forward step
Benesova - actually she's the best one imo, and the look she carries on her face as she serves tops it off
Perry - heaps of spin, kinda like Schiavone's, but has more kick
Vesnina - kinda like Peng's, but i really like her upper body rotation and how she brings her racket down with the ball lol
Sucha - cute motion IMO, love how she closes her eyes
Dushevina - yeh i like this one too and the knee bend suits her
Pous Tio - very easy on the eye
Asagoe - reminds me of Bedanova's, very smooth
Kremer - love how her right hand comes over her left before she serves

Vee's when its on is brilliant to watch just so fluid and powerful, when its off then its not, serena's is very fluid and pretty too all the time and Chakvetadze's is quite intersting to me, she winds up really fast and then belts it
