    Some of those names on the list are not worthy of the word "graceful".

    LHI and BCL are always smooooooooooooooth on the court. So relaxing to watch

    My vote will be to the shy, soft spoken, former 1980 All England Champion, Prakash Padukone. The gentlemen Prakash once quoted after beating his idol, the legendary Rudy Hartono in the 1980 Swedish Open 9-15, 15-12 and 15-1. “ I could have beaten him on ‘love’ in the last game, but I did not have the heart to do that to my Idol. So I ensured that he got one point before I beat him,” says Prakash, ever the gentleman.

    That's a even worse embarrassment for Rudy

    Haha, with today's training methodologies I find it harder to classify MS players graceful. Current players maybe Bao...

    Or maybe I am not watching enough matches nowadays :p.

    yeah. i actually find "graceful MS" an oxymoron. prove me wrong, but i have watched almost all the players listed so far, and none of them i can consider graceful. powerful, speed, smooth, accurate, some of them, yes. but graceful.... hardly.

    so given the suggestions (!!!) listed so far, i think some of us might not have the proper understanding of the word graceful. let's start with the dictionary definition and go from there:
