From presentation to playing style, which guy is the most elegant in the top 100? :confused:

Sorry if the poll options don't meet your needs, but they're non-negotiable.

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.

Serve and forehand are poetry in motion.

They actually are :worship:

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.

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

Filo V.
10-12-2011, 10:51 AM
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.

I think Dolgopolov may lose all his 'elegance' by breaking his back after another two-handed slice BH (not that I don't dig his style, but calling him elegant is fun)
To the topic - Fed.

Puschkin
10-12-2011, 11:30 AM
Roger can not be beaten in this department. Combining the strengths of Richard and Felicaino and subtracting their weaknesses, makes quite some elegance too, though.

I like Dolgo's game, but elegance does not come to my mind when watching him, Mayer is unconventional, but not elegant either.

No, actually, nothing I'm saying is due to physical appearance, it's just a coincidence Volandri is attractive. The reality is, Pippo has the most elegant game, most classy, and most attractive to watch. Ljubo? Not even close, like has been said, he's stiff as a board. And Roger has lost elegance now that he's trying to be really aggressive and has gotten older and lost some grace in his game. Pippo is fabulous with a capital F.

We're talking about who is the most complete player, and Novak is not even close to that with his serve, slice, net game... granted, on today's slow courts, there really is no need for any of that as long as you are an excellent baseliner - which Novak is.

Also, the weakness of JesusFed's backhand is so exaggerated. People played there all the time mainly because if they hit to the forehand, the point was over in seconds. "Everyone knew" how to beat Fed, yet only Nadal managed to do it with any consistency (and that only due to an unprecedented amount of topspin). Off clay, Federer could even handle that too. Tells you how big that weakness really was.

no, its just an opinion. Im fine with you disagreeing with it - you, obviously, are not.

bold part #1: thats just nonsensical. 'consistently play aggressive and you'll get that win' doesnt mean anything in respect to technical well-roundedness and matchups, that we were talking about.

bold part #2: for you: definition of "complete": having all parts or elements; lacking nothing; whole; entire; full.

bold part #1: thats just nonsensical. 'consistently play aggressive and you'll get that win' doesnt mean anything in respect to technical well-roundedness and matchups, that we were talking about.I said that in response to you asking "how do you beat novak". Hit sharp slices to his backhand a couple of times and then quickly overpower him. Use angles, sneak to the net. There's no dramatic trick like "moonball to his backhand", no, but it's very possible to beat him by playing smart and accurate tennis. Anyway like I said this is not that relevant - having no weakness in his baseline game means he can dominate the sport right now but it does not mean he has no weaknesses at all as a player.

I wouldn't really liken Federer to Holding, as smooth as clockwork as he was. I think batting is the skill area in cricket that best proves to be analogous with Fed's silky smooth and explosive game. I'm thinking, Brian Lara. Ah, but maybe Sachin Tendulkar is a better fit. Hmm, but he isn't explosive enough in comparison.

Well, then I can only conclude that Federer is a mixture of Brian Lara and Sachin Tendulkar, and with the charm of Malcomb Marshall or hell, maybe even Viv Richards.

Michael Atherton was a brilliant technician.

But yeh answering this poll is a little bit too easy. Better to compare Fed to the likes of Rosewall and Edberg. Even then, they fall short; Rosewall had a shagged serve and Edberg had a crabby forehand.

Michael Atherton was a brilliant technician.

Oh RLY? Is that why he was BUTCHERED by McGrath 19 times and 17 times by Ambrose?

He had some fine innings but he couldn't even muster an average above 40 and lacked the flair and dynamism as a captain that Nasser had, who, by the way, had an almost identical an equally mediocre - for a top order batsman - batting average.

Atherton>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Hussain.

Lol. Not as a captain, and as pure cricketers there isn't much in it either, but it misses the point. I brought up Hussain to show that he's only on an equal level to him and yet Hussain wasn't exactly great, was he. The current generation of English (South African) batsmen are FAR superior. You want to talk about English technicians, look at Ian Bell. He's matured into an exquisite stroke-maker and is averaging nearly 50, which even accounting for the worse bowling attacks in this era is far and away better than Atherton or Hussain.

In short bringing up Atherton was lame dude! What about Gower! What about Gooch! What about Boycott!

You might as well have brought up Nick Knight - :lol:

This, I can undoubtedly agree with. Shame about mental illness problems making him feel like he had to withdraw from the England setup.

Djokovic elegant? :spit:

If you are going to compare Fed to somebody that plays cricket, no doubt it's Tendulkar.

Maybe you never got the chance to see Michael Holding's run up and bowling action - poetry in motion. Was worth the admission fee simply to watch it. He glided in, much like Fed glides on a tennis court -- one of the reasons he (Holding) was also called "Whispering Death"
