Why Nadal's entire game isn't in the poll?

I don't think Gasquet's FH is ugly -- needs work -- but it isn't ugly. Gonzo's BH does it for me.

Davydenko's slice bh and bh volley are pretty ugly.

Gasquet is really a strange case when you think about it: he's got arguably the most beautiful backhand of the tour but also the ugliest forehand(at least among the well known players)

I agree. When it comes to prettiness to watch, Gasquet's forehand is very smooth and easy on the eye.

Gasquet's forehand is ugly as hell. It's not uneffective as most other ugly shots like Roddick's BH, but it's ugly as hell.

Out of the given choices I voted for Gasquet's FH. Shame that richie21 didn't extend it to top-40, because then my vote would undoubtably go to Feli Lopez's topspin BH. When I look at that shot, I still don't get it, how the guy can be among the top-players (yes, being top-40 is being among top-players!) with such a technically terrible shot. And I don't mean bashing him here, because I like his overall game (he's, in fact, one of my fav players), but this one shot drives me a bit nuts, when I see it

Speaking about top-30, I find Davydenko's volleys pretty ugly, and Robredo's and Simon's overall game without any specific shot.

roddicks bh looks worse than couriers baseball swing...

gasket's fh is shaky looking, but not as questionable as his mental state...

larry stefanki encouraged gonzo to use his slice backhand more, and thus, he reached the AO final...

however, this of course was coach code for: 'dont make me ill with your one handed topspin'

Yep But to be honest, I don't find Gonzo's topspin BH so ugly. I was talking about FeLo's topspin BH in my post. However, it has to be acknowledged that Albert Costa has improved that shot. A year ago it was even more terrible than now It's still pretty useless though, especially, if somebody is approaching him to his BH side. Around 90% of times FeLo will either hit his topspin BH passing shot in the net or out...

Stepanek's forehand. It's the only thing about the guy that isn't totally sexy.
