Oh, this hasn't been done to death at all. This isn't like the 309393292th thread about the most played-out subject on WTAWorld ever.

God, do you have nothing better to do than endlessly recycle stupid, pointless arguments over and over again?

Depends how you define talent.

But i think Justine, but i guess you could make an argument for pretty much all of them.

My favourite players:

Venus Williams
2000 Wimbledon, US Open
2001 Wimbledon, US Open
2005 Wimbledon

Nastya Myskina
2004 RG Champion

Sad when you realise he's only been on the board 5 minutes, and hasn't seen all the threads about them. Show some respect.

Venus Williams

Thank you. I've actually been on this board for 2 weeks, but I certainly haven't seen a thread like this in past 2 weeks.

It was a dumb question the first time it came up, and it's still dumb.

Justine Henin (widest range of shots) and Jennifer Capriati (cleanest hitter of the ball).

I would have to say Justine cos of the variety of shots that she has and she just has the most gorgeous backhand I have ever seen. Kuznetsova could be one of them because she really to me is the most talented Russian of all of them especially from the way she played at the US Open, great things are going to come from her.

Justine's always got the fight in her


Serena's always got it. Never underestimate the heart of a Champion

Well yeah i think this question is more a matter of personal criterion, but in terms of tennis form, as well as clean execution of shots i would say Mauresmo. Yes Henins variety is nice to watch, however it isnt as useful and if anything her volley game is just slightly better than average, in which case Mauresmos is so much better and effective. By the way Henin is no way near the equivalent female version of Federer, that would be more like a Hingis but her serve would suggest otherwise, however her court sense and touch is uncomparable, none of the current top players out there can even come close to her volleying abilities and if only Henin could anticipate nearly as well as Hingis she wouldnt have to need to rely on bulking up. If anything Mauresmo is closer to being the female version of Federer, however her mental department just makes it seem like shes a joke of a player for being ranked #1 and not having won a slam, shes like Federer 2 or 3 yrs ago, has lots of talent but cant put it together, just melts in the sight of a challenge.
