Create the SUPER HUMAN player!

I don't know if anyone has done this thread, but here's a chance to combine the best aspects of everyone's game to make the perfect player.

My picks:
Serena's serve (1st and 2nd)
Martina N.'s volley
Graf's forehand
Venus' backhand (I know alot of people will say Justine's)
Justine's variety
Kim's legs (and her great attitude)
Lindsey's ballstriking (maybe monica's ability to hit down the line)
Martina's on court brain
Venus' on court composure
Serena's/Justine's determination

The perfect player. No?

I think that would be a pretty much inbeatable player . But i would like all the strokes to look like how hingis does them, natural and smooth, with minimal effort.

The next big thing: Voegele

can't argue with that, I think Roger on the men's side is potential the closest to all the things I listed above, and he has the ease like hingis

Strokes of Lindsay on both wings forehand and backhand
Angled shots of Monica Seles
First serve of Lindsay Davenport
Second serve of Serena Williams
Volleys of Navratilova
footwork of Venus Williams
quickness of Kim or Jeniffer
Determination of Henin no matter what it takes to win.
Martina hingis tactics.

No one can beat that.

footwork: Monica ??? That's the only thing that sticks out as odd to me. I can see Coetzer, Clijsters, Steffi, Serena, Venus, or Araxnta all in the "footwork" category...but not Monica. She's got a lot of great attributes I'd take her angles or return of serve or her stubborness on the court, but not her footwork.

do you know what footwork is?

it's not speed, it's not movement, it's how you accomodate yourself to hit in the best possible position.

Because of she is double-handed on both sides, she needs it to get in a good position.

Venus does not have a good footwork, it's actually the worst part of her game, she often hit the ball from an awful position, and compensates with power, she is fast, that's a different thing.

Justin's backhand looks nice but not effective as Venus. if you have seen her play serena and venus you will know what i am talking about.
