Disagree there.
Even when he was in some hot streaks where he was full of confidence,his forehand often singlehandedly lost him some matches.

I personally find Roddick's serve motion hideous.

Default Re: Ugliest shot among the top 30 players

Well someone was going to do this...
1. Federer - backhand, has a weird mechanism to it.
2. Nadal - moonballing, his backhand on hard court is awful.
3. Djokovic - average... hasn't really got an awful shot but his forehand does make the occasional catastrophic error.
4. Donkey (davydenko) - his whole game... no, wait. His volleying and his BH slice is pathetic, it should be a crime to just watch him try those shots.
5. Ferrer - not much to say
6. Roddick - ugly BH,not even close to being the worst in effectiveness in the top 30, but not beautiful on the eyes.
7. Nalbandian - not much... donut dave hardly plays top level anymore.
8. Blake - his backhand is pathetic.
9. Gasquet - forehand needs MAJOR work.
10. Wawrinka - forehand, backhand, volley, come to think of it - all of his game.
11. Murray - awful dropshot.
12. Almagro - not much...
13. Tsonga - not much..
14. Gonzalez - his BH is awful.
15. Stepanek - not much but his forehand isn't beautiful.
16. Mathieu - not much.
17. Youzny - not much (I don't watch him that much)
18. Berd-sht - not much (volleys?)
19. Boredo - all of his game, all of his shots.
20. Monaco - don't watch him.
21. Verdasco - weak backhand.
22. Karlovic - backhand of a 10 year old, it is unbelievable; it's that awful.
23. Ferrero - not much.
24. Moya - his BH slice is ineffective, kind of like Donkey's BH slice.
25. Baghdatis - not much.
26. Ljubicic - forehand, backhand, slice, all of his game!
27. Hewitt - not much.
28. Niemenien - how the hell is he in the top 30?
29. Simon - all of his game.
30. Seppi - .

yeah... old school bump forehand... it is a carbon copy of edberg's... which, therefore saves it and allows rado to retain his overall outstanding sex value...

Stepanek's forehand is ultra-sexy, but it's 80s sexiness.

Around 90% of times FeLo will either hit his topspin BH passing shot in the net or out...
yeah seriously, its sh!t, lopez only cares above how the shot looks and whether he reatins his poise for the crowd and cameras... the result does not matter... and i agree, i think he should just dink that backhand low to the attacker and try for the two ball pass, he'd have to have more success in all honesty... its not like the tour is made up of henman and rafter types who are gonna knock off the volley 1st time everytime...

No it isn't, Redneck Stepanek is a disgrace to look at. How the hell did he get the nickname Sexy? More like Worm, to be honest.

you are not the first to be so critical of stepanek... many have cited radek owns a lack of talent... tho, how can this be when radek has influenced many popular dancefloor moves and has had a string of tidy looking women hanging off him... it also argued that radek invented breakdancing, the word 'mojo' and was the founding father of the gangster rap age...

Nadal's forehand, everytime he whips up his left arm, it looks like he's smelling his own armpit.

I don't think this is as helpful as you think. The thread was created to determine which top 30 player has the ugliest shot--i.e. rank them. Still, this probably took you a few minutes, so you get a B+ for effort.

Default Re: Ugliest shot among the top 30 players

Gasquet's forehand is quite hideous. Nadal's forehand is ugly as well. Andreev (although not top 30) also has an ugly fh. For me Moya's backhand is the ugliest shot amongst the top 30. I actually prefer Roddick's backhand to Moyas. Too bad you didnt extend this to top 40 because Lopez's backhand would've won this hands down.

Ljubicic's backhand may be better than his forehand, but his backhand still looks worse. It has the racquet head speed of an elephant.

Stepanek's forehand is probably the worst looking shot in the game.
