Re: Best player with the worst technique or under-developed game?

JJ's FH too Andrea's game also seems very unnatural.. (Serve, FH esp)

SANIA JUSTINE ELENAD

Martina Hingis Ana Ivanovic Myskina Safarova

When I have my goals set, I always attain them- Justine

Re: Best player with the worst technique or under-developed game?

Does worst technique = ugly technique? If so, then Nadal has the worst techniques in the top 10 yet he has won 10 Slams so far. I would like to have techniques as worse/ugly as his if that would make me a great champion.

It may be unattractive, but it's so solid from a technique and results perspective, and her shots never "go off". People may also make fun of her serve, but she has one of the better serves on tour.

No, don't think so. I sometimes think Serena's FH and BH look ungainly but they're pretty much solid on the technique.

Re: Best player with the worst technique or under-developed game?

has anyone seen Razzano play? ugly technique, Anotella Serra Zanetti was awful to watch too. I kept wondering how she made a living out of tennis?

Re: Best player with the worst technique or under-developed game?

Angelique Kerber, I don't dislike her at all but come on

"Sometimes we've wondered if Martina actually knew what she was saying. Maybe it was her age or inexperience or something got lost in the translation. But I don't know. She comes out with something astounding and then just stares at you like, 'What did I say?' But then she'll have that glint in her eye."

Re: Best player with the worst technique or under-developed game?

I'd have to say Petko too. Dushevina, if you want to go further down the rankings too.

Hlavackova, Strycova, Venus, Serena, Schiavone, Hradecka, Safarova, Cetkovska, Kasatkina, Putintseva, Ostapenko, Gasparyan, Krunic, Kudermetova, Schuurs

Sam Smith on Hlavackova

Caro's FH is pretty bad, but BH seems technically sound, and her serve is fine, too.

I would say Bartoli--nothing technically correct about her forehand, backhand, or serve.

I'm surprised so many people are saying Petkovic--I agree with the FH, but I kind of like the backhand
