is it possible for another two handed forehander to be ranked number 1

Since marion won today, it made me think if it was possible for another two hander from both sides be number 1 like monica seles. Because everyone hits so hard now adays i think that would never be able to happen

GOOOOOOO Peng^^^^ Serena%%% Venus

Also Go Bartoli li na!!! Use that booty power serena!!!

If Marion makes top 5, I'll eat this monitor in front of me.
On a webcam, so you can watch.

I don't think it's a matter of people hitting too hard (I mean, Monica would still be considered one of the hardest hitters today). But it's more of a matter of none of the current 2-hands on both sides being *that* good. It's possible, but not from anyone we've seen yet IMO.

Well in today's game it comes down to the littlest things that decide things like this.

They would need to be able to hit a regular forehand as well for reach.

For a 2-handed forehander to even be ranked top 5 they would need to move like Clijsters, hit like Pierce on an "on" day, and serve like "peak" Serena. There'd be problems with reach, variety and volleying. Monica was the first and the last

Regardless of what rank she'll achieve, I think it's a rare treat to see a two-hander off both side play in itself Making top20 is icing on the cake (no pun intended )

Yes, but they would have to develop a game style involving being very aggressive, going for a winner on almost every shot, and closing down the net a lot. They would never survive being pushed around on the baseline from right to left by players like Sharapova.
