What are Kims best weapons?

What do you think? whenever there are discussion about the best groundstrokes or whatever everyone is always quick to say Lindsay/Serena/Venus/Sharapova, but do you not think Kims forehand and backhand are just as brilliant?

I know her court coverage and defensive play is probly the best around, but i reckon her groundies can match anyone elses out there aswell.

Kim's best weapons? hmm I'd say her boobs, they'd give Serena's a run for their money

Her groundstrokes are simply but people do not recognize this because she hits with much more topspin than the rest of 'em. Her backhand in particular is just a crisp shot that she can hit anywhere on the court. Certainly, Clijsters groundstrokes are some of the best on tour... power, spin, and accuracy. Her crosscourt backhand is really such a heavy shot, it usually puts the other girls on immediate defense.

And that' s why she's such a hard time with Venus.....because Kim really does prefer to hit backhands rather than forehands....and I mean you really really don't to want to be trading backhands with Venus.

Her major weapons? she's quick, it isn't just that she gets to a lot of balls, she's just happy playing that way too...and this can frustrate players who don't have the patience for this.

That's why players like Lindsay and Maria I' m afraid are Kim's patsies.

Always bet on black!

She's a more consistent Elena Dementieva with a 300x better serve.

Her legs are her best weapon. She gets to shots no one else could get too

I would say her fitness is her best weapon. Not that her forehand or backhand are bad, but it's really her physical abilities that make her the outstanding player that she is.

I Think Her Speed Is Her Biggest Weapon- It Allows Her To Get To Balls Noone Else Would- For Example That Pt In The 2nd Set With Sharapova IN MIAMI--- And It Also Allows Her To Go Quickly From Defense To Offense

If Davenport can do it so can you-- Please come back Kim

I'm wonder if both boobs can give Jordan's run for their money.

Super speedy
Superb fitness; could last all day out there
Takes the ball so early; gives no time for the opponent to prepare
Smart; able to adjust her game to the conditions, eg. strong winds
Hits shocking angles, not just boringly straight back to the baseline
Is always well rested for finals, because her early round matches go something like 60 61 so often!

I wouldn't say it is her quickness per sa, but just her court coverage. She really makes an effort for every shot. Where as girls like Venus or Serena who are probably just as fast, don't really go for every shot anymore
