Kuznetsova - best ALL surface game?

Not counting mental toughness against top players *yes, mental toughness counts for lots and lots and lots in tennis*, yet, just her GAME... serve, movement, forehand, topspin, slice, overhead, backhand, fitness, power.

Is she the best all court player on tour, possibly ever? OKOK, this may seem a little stupid, as she only has one slam, but seriously, what other players had/have a game thats pretty much suited/capable of doing well to/on every surface?

Discuss.

Women's tennis sucks.

Go Rafa.

I want names, how their shots match up on whatever surface.

Success doesn't have to come into it.

Since I got into tennis in 2004, Justine's been 0-1 on grass, so I can't really speak for her.

But Amelie is definitely a great choice.

Sveta's game won't be effective indoors, I am afraid.. On other surfaces she should be very effective..

Fast surface. Low bounce. Surface doesn't react to topspin all that much.. The same reason why Henin is generally unsuccessful indoors too..

I see.

I think I need someone to write up a printout about bounces and what kinds of games are effective on what surface. I just don't get it. I know clay is slow and grass is fast.

Me too. But enin has a Final and a Semi-Final appearance in 01' and 03'. Both times being crushed, brutalized and embarrassed and Centre Court by the eventual Champion

Well I think you already should kow that topspin and slice are very effective on Rebound Ace and Clay. The slice is very effective on grass; however top spin doesn't do much damage. As you should know, and I believe you do, power and athleticism is vital to have success on Grass That's why Venus and Serena dominate on grass

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.
