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.

Movement in tennis is 100% a talent.

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.

Everything is an innate gift by your definition. Even the toss coin (all about how you throw the coin)

Nothing is an innate gift by your definition. No one is born with the knowledge on what trajectory they need to swing the racket at for each shot. Just because you are agile doesn't automatically mean you can immaculately position yourself for shots. What kind of logic is that? It doesn't matter how fast you do it if its wrong.
