Talking Mara Santangelo

Wow
Does she even now the word 'Top Spin' ?
She hits sooo unbelievably flat. She's just "pushing" the ball. But I like her gamestyle and her long and thin legs.

she plays her own style. She uses her height to hit her groundstrokes flat down into the court and is a great volleyer.

I love her game. It reminds me a lof of Nat Tauziat's -- so many similar elements (aside from the backhand): A simple, flat forehand that's used to come in, crisp volleys, and an aggressive, flat serve.

Good matchup for Justine.
For a moment I thought I saw Davide Sanguineti in skirt LOL, but, no I mean Mara has definitely nicer legs
I like her bh more than fh, still volleys and serve are just classic

She kind of reminds me of a spider. Because of her long arms and legs...

She's sooo average

Falvia has now become one of my favourites after her comment on Venus (and Serena).

1. Venus Williams
2. Na Li
3. Serena Williams
4. Jelena Jankovic
5. Ai Sugiyama
