Don't you just feel like trying to play 'beautiful tennis' is a total waste of time?

I had an argument with my new tennis coach today, because he was praising a ridicolous pusher who never had a chance against me in all of the matches we've played because his game was more natural and more suited to clay (we were playing in clay). I play a game suited to fast court with very fast racquethead speed and hes NEVER said anything good about it. Even in clay I blow that pusher out of the court. So the question is, don't you think that trying to play pretty tennis is a total waste of time? The more efficient, the better.

Re: Don't you just feel like trying to play 'beautiful tennis' is a total waste of ti

(I've missed your presnece on TF, Sammo)

I think there's a connection between "pretty tennis" and "good technique." I mean one of my favorite junior players has terrible-looking strokes, but it's efficient. At the same time, I don't really see her lasting long as a pro with those strokes (if she does turn pro).

IMO, aggressive games don't necessarily make pretty tennis because it relies on brute force sometimes and is prone to uglier UE's. So sometimes, pretty tennis isn't a waste of time...

Pretty tennis translates best on clay, though. All the stroke production, fine touch, etc., is needed most on clay. I think that's something your coach doesn't notice.

Well depends. What do you define as "beautiful tennis"??

And I, myself have a pretty ugly game (Sometimes BBB or Ultimate Pusher)

A player should play a solid game, and only then the game becomes beautiful
