Yes, and no bra necessary, which is not a plus for most spectators.

I think the women's player that couldn't be beat would be as follows:

(Note: assume that players mentioned are at their absolute best.)

1) Serve: Serena Williams
2) Forehand: [2002] Serena Williams (her forehand has changed since.)
3) Backhand: Venus Williams
4) Volley: Martina Navratilova
5) Speed/Agility: Venus Williams
6) Mentality: Maria Sharapova
7) Fight: Serena Williams
8) Personality: Kim Clijsters


Serena Williams
Martina Navratilova
Steffi Graf

Aha, but looks don't come into play for me with athletes. I am blind to that aspect, just like the famous statue of Justice.

Don't believe you.

See if I was walking down the street, bet the first thing you'd think to yourself would be 'I don't like the look of him, Ewww look at him'.

Everybody goes on looks, just that most don't/won't own up.

Hey, I never said I wouldn't go by looks regarding YOU. I only said regarding athletes.

But even then it's not 100% true. I find funny-looking people endearing, especially in these times when looks have become such a big deal, so it does come into play a bit -- in an opposite way. Also, certain beautiful women and great-looking male athletes are so vain that their looks actually detract from their value for me.
