Nice deflection. You still haven't provided any evidence that movement in tennis is purely dictated by how fast and agile you are without any technical requirements. Please.

Your only argument is to say that positioning your feet just before hitting a shot is a technical skill.
But it's not a movement skill anymore, it's an extended shot making skill.

Movement in tennis is 100% a talent.

I love all aspects of TENNIS.

Federer - The Artist
Murray - The Tactician
Nalbandian - The Ballstriker
Llodra - The S/V

Grosjean had a forehand. And a very good one at that. So it's quite obvious.

Wrong on both occasions.
You gotta be shitting me. Grosjean had an amazing serve for his height. He used to be absolutely bomb that ball.

As for the video, go ahead search for "atp worst shots." Gasquet will tell you, it is his serve. If his forehand is bad and he considers his serve his worst shot, oh gosh.
