Re: Best player with the worst technique or under-developed game?
Venus Williams without a doubt. Here is a 7 time GS winner who is technically incapable of hitting half the shots in the game: no topspin lob, dreadful drop-shot, horrible slice. Nevermind that the only shots she can hit (standard serve, forehand, backhand) all have kinks and hitches.
