Talk Tennis Guru
I am afraid to say, but, calling Graf's elegant movement and strokes "ugly" has to be a new low even in the ranks of the Djoko*****.
i'll take the risk to be burned at the stake with you here...I find it ugly. And as I said before, if you can't accept a different view on something as trivial as some tennis player's game, calling it "low" and calling me names, that's really not my problem.
not denying the efficiency of her strokes but i also never understood the praise for her supposed grace: her game looked absolutely unsmooth/unfluid compared to feline-like players like federer, edberg or even sampras (for instance).
her forehand may be a lethal weapon but it looked disgraciously 'stiff' and her backhand was an awkward monstruosity (the jerky movements of ponytail didn't help!)
... maybe it's because people enjoyed her legs?
(or... her nose? ok that was mean... i take it back)
