Simon has very smooth strokes, looks so effortless.

Re: Most Elegant Player

Out of the poll options, only Federer, Gasquet and Llodra I think can be considered as truly elegant players, but some people have a different eye for elegance than others I guess.

Re: Most Elegant Player

I get Mayer but Dolgo is a bit odd. Exciting, yeah, elegant, no

They actually are

Pippo has the most rhythmic game on tour right now. His forehand is a lot more free-flowing than Gasquet, his closest rival. Also Pippo has the most graceful movement on tour. Effortless, smooth and an amazing first step. His backhand is only rivaled by few.

Re: Most Elegant Player

Volandri's betting graphs are certainly poetic. The way they collapse as money pours against him is most elegant.

I like Gasquet and everything but he's really awkward most of the time, especially on the forehand side

Re: Most Elegant Player

Richie is awkward with his movement, he's got clumsy feet. But his serve, backhand, his variety is classy and very elegant. His forehand is less elegant but it's still quite elegant.

Roger was no doubt the most elegant player, but as he's lost athletic ability he's lost elegance in his game.

And yeah, fixer or not fixer, Pippo not only is making his money, but he's doing so with the most attractive game in tennis.
