Kuznetsova's Game: Beautiful or Ugly?

I don't find it to be that aesthetically pleasing, but she has a very effective game.

What are your thoughts? Is Sveta's game beautiful, average or ugly?

Re: Kuznetsova's Game: Beautiful or Ugly?

she moves well - beaautiful
however her movement can be very heavy looking at times - ugly

she can hit winners from any where on the court - beautiful
she can hit errors even from the easiest positions on court - ugly

a lot of variety in her shot-making - beaautiful
doesn't use the variety well or often ENOUGH - ugly

game kuznetsova -> so classically beautiful yet so modernly beastial and erratic = average.

Re: Kuznetsova's Game: Beautiful or Ugly?

to me her game is effective, but it's not as beautiful as Hingis' game for instance. so therefore it's average for me.

Re: Kuznetsova's Game: Beautiful or Ugly?

she can hits winners from almost anywhere, but that doesnt make her game beautiful. i think her shots are really quite ugly and i find it difficult to watch her play because of that

Re: Kuznetsova's Game: Beautiful or Ugly?

I voted for average, because of her instability in performance. I believe she is playing great, but she can't keep up with her good performances.

She should come to net more, but she would rather blast forehands all day.

Not very beautiful but quite effective. But I'm always by the power of her forehand on hard courts!

Re: Kuznetsova's Game: Beautiful or Ugly?

Does anybody have a beautiful game?

When Sveta is on fire (from memory v Sharapova Miami, v Mauresmo China, v Jankovic Stuttgart, v Petrova Stuttgart, v Hingis Zurich) her game is extremely pleasing to watch. Kuzy's excellent footwork make her a good doubles player to watch as well.

Re: Kuznetsova's Game: Beautiful or Ugly?

I think some players have a beautiful game to watch, Hingis, Myskina, Federer and (as much as I hate to say it) Henin have beatiful games. I find people like Venus Williams,Clijsters, Dementieva (post serve) and Davenport graceful to watch because of how much power they can generate and make it look easy.

Sveta doesnt have the ugliest game, but it is very realiant on power, and she does make a lot of mistakes. She also sometimes seems intend on using only her forehnad to win points.

I would say Sharapova has a pretty ugly game. Essembling all the text book shots she has leart into one game makes her game like individual character. When it goes wrong there is nothing to salvage it and the errors come and come and come. However I must sya i was impressed with her US Open final performance. She looked like she was coming into her own...maybe she will change with time.

Re: Kuznetsova's Game: Beautiful or Ugly?

her game was beautiful in 04, watching bac matches from the china open, she moved well had a great attitude, and really belted that forehand, now it seems to be a little ragged.

Re: Kuznetsova's Game: Beautiful or Ugly?

Her game is not certainly beautiful to watch like an Amelie Mauresmo or a Justine Henin-Hardenne...But... It is really effective and that is all that really matters
