I would say Justine, Martina , and Maria are the top 3 at the moment, for various reasons, P

I'd go with Sharapova. She is always so intense on the court and you can tell she never wants to lose. Justine would be my second choice.

Maria
That is a big part of her success (more than her game IMO)

Anastasia Myskina

I would say Elena Dementieva. not because she is my favourite but if she is not motivated she can not produce such good results with that serve. also she handles her losses pretty well and is motivated to beat that player next time she faces her.

Yet ANOTHER one of your threads, driven towards getting a group of people to give praise to Maria!

Martina, after her comeback, she looks so determined.If She wasnt motivated, she would never have comeback..

Maria is also very intense and definitely its her determination which gets her through in so many matches..

Maria.

I already said it once: she is so popular, she could just sit down, make some photoshoots and get the money stuffed up her a$$. But she seems to really focus on her tennis and that's what I like when I watch her playing.

Your whole future depends on your dreams. So don't waste time, go sleeping!
