Tennis Forhands: Top 10 forhands on the WTA tour!

I realise that im new, and there has probably been a number of threads, in the past, regarding forhands. But, ill hope you'll all help me out by participating and entering this "ongoing" discussion of "who has the best forhand in the WTAtour....from current players AS WELL as players who, might be injured....like Monica...or jen.

Lets make it interesting, this catagory includes inside out forhand, crosscourt forhand, on the run forhand...and also include a swinging volley, because i like consider it to be psuedo forhand!


MY TOP 10

1)Serena
2)Steffi
3)Lindsay
4)Jennifer
5)Maria
6)Kim
7)Mary
9)Monica
10)Justine

Mary Pierce and Steffi Graf have the best forehands in the game imo. Others do come close, but those two stand out from the others.

Jelena Dokic.Vera Zvonareva.Tatiana Golovin.Mary Pierce.Monica Seles.Martina Hingis.Anna Kournikova

Ana? She is a super powerfull girl...but to me, her forhand will only stand out when and if she wins slams to back that shot up. All the ladies above have huge career accomplishments that have all been the result of there money shot, the forhand.

Out of that list steffi wins by a million miles. A shot beyond comparison.

Is Steffi a current player?

If we're talking current players then Schnyder and Dementieva should in the poll because without their forehands they certainly would not be top 10 players.
