Worst shots in the top 10

From the top 10 players, who has the worst:

Forehand:
Backhand:
Serve:
Volley:
Dropshot:
Movement:
Slice:

I guess some of the categories have an obvious answer (I just put them in there so my list seemed full), but others could spur up a discussion.

It's amazing that Davenport and Sharapova have gotten so far on mostly power.

Forehand: Judging by this year, Kim probably. But Amelie overall I guess.
Backhand: Patty, everyone else has such solid backhands.
Serve:
Volley: Maria
Dropshot: Maria, although she seems to be working on it
Movement: Linds
Slice: Not really sure, I haven't seen Maria use it much at all?

Ohhh, I forgot Amelie's forehand. Hers is the worst, actually.

Kim's forehand at the US Open was absolutely magical But recently...

I agree with all of these! I am not 100% sure who has the worst forehand though

I agree with most people so far, but I think Pierce is close to Davenport for worst movement
