what are the most underrated shots in women's tennis?
again - straightfoward.
#3. martina hingis forehand - not as world class as her backhand? sure. nonetheless, when she takes it early, she hits it with a great amount of accuracy and spin. her forehand down the line is every bit as good as her backhand down the line.
#2. kim clijsters' backhand - few people mention how good of a backhand she has. a very fluid motion produces a powerful, consistent stroke that is preferable to her forehand in my opinion. she's very strong off her back leg, and so she can hit great defensive backhand winners.
#1. serena williams' backhand - for all the talk about her forehand and her serve, her backhand is often overlooked. she can hit delicate, short angles better than anyone this side of the swiss miss, and of course she has great power on this side, too. dare i say, i prefer her backhand over her sisters'.
of course, these are just MY opinions
nothing more, nothing less. so what shots do you think are underrated?
