Ugliest Strokes

My vote goes to Robin Söderling. No one is even close to him. None of his strokes look even remotely okay. Every time I watch him play, I feel the urge to throw up.

Re: Who has the ugliest strokes?

You obviously have never seen Blake or Roddick live. Ugliest games I've ever seen.

Actually, I saw Blake - Söderling live here at the Stockholm Open just a few weeks ago. While Blake and Roddick both have rediculously ugly strokes, I have to put Söderling above them both. And I'd put Roddick above Blake in terms of stroke ugliness, by the way.

Well... True, but ugly in different ways. Söderling's follow-through is... I can't even explain it. It's just horrible.

Re: Who has the ugliest strokes?

I don't like watching Volandri's strokes, especially his serve and FH

Volandri's FH >>>>> Sanguinetti's FH

for the serve you are right, although he's been improving it a little

Re: Who has the ugliest strokes?

For me, it's Monfils. His strokes are very brutal.

Roger:
Rafa:
Roddick ~ Baggy ~ Blake ~ Chucho ~ Coria ~ Dima ~ Gask ~ Gaston ~ Guga ~ Haas ~ Juanqui ~ Marat ~ Delpy ~ Tsonga ~ Murray ~ Moya:
Most ATP players:

~ Passenger on the Federer Express #111 ~ Resident of Denaon's Den of Misfits ~
~ Member of Mohamed Lahyani Appreciation Society ~
