The PERFECT women's tennis player

If you could combine certain parts of player's games to create the perfect unbeatable women's tennis player, what would you take from each player?

The categories are:

Serve
Volley
Footwork
Backhand
Forehand
Mental Toughness
X-Factor (can range from anything to presence on the court, popularity, something that makes them interesting)
and last but not least..
GRUNT (optional)

Rules: Only active players, (Serena, Capriati and Seles can still count as active) and you can only use a player ONCE.. so for example, you can't use Venus' forehand, and her backhand.. just one.. Alright kids, have fun..

My picks:

Serve- Alicia Molik (alot of aces)
Volley- Venus Williams (too tall to pass)
Footwork- Kim Clijsters (those splits!)
Backhand- Chokomomo (just beautiful)
Forehand- Capriati (flat, and some serious power)
Mental Toughness- Serena Williams (The greatest fighter, EVER)
X- Factor- Sharapova (most popular nowdays, and is good)
Grunt: Lena D (Obsessed with Lena's grunt...its awesome!)

Her name is Serena Williams

I'm no fan of hers, but let's face it, she IS the perfect female player.
