    Susi, that is the only one...and GZC should be close....the rest in the list nowhere close, but to pick a current player, maybe, a big maybe would be JYJ and we are talking about gracefullness, not achievements here.

    Define beauty play. Not sure what you mean

    I think Wang Lin, Jiang Yangjiao (thanks OTB) and Wang Xin should be on the list of current players

    I have to say not.

    I define Graceful & beautiful as a player who can control the game effortlessly whilst keeping great echnique & form. Few players can do this & at the top level the form & grace breaks down.

    Not to say the the Number 1 players are graceful (eg WYH = No) but they have to be capable of producing results.

    The most recent player who had this I would say were Mia Audina (although arguable didn't produce results), ZN 2002/3 (after that she was less powerful & fast and more grit & strength). XXF has great strokes, but always looked a bit clumsy.

    Further back you have to look at GZC, SS, YZY

    For Modern I would argue there isn't one - for the reasons above people can still be WR No1, WC, OG etc.. but not be graceful.

    See posts 10 and 11 which said it all...if still no sure, see videos of Susi and Gong, and you realize the players you listed are playing like robots and have glue on their shoes:p:D your players will be lunch meat if playing against SS and GZC...chomp, chomp, LOL;):D

    Susi Susanti for the winner =). None of the current batch of WS makes me want to watch them over and over again like Susi Susanti does on the 90's. The most important thing: She deliver on big events

    WSX should be at the top of the list for current players. Unlike WL, WYH and JHJ and Tine who use pure power and speed, she moves around the court so effortless, and it's her placements of her shots, not her power to win her games. And of course, she is cute too. :)
