Re: The perfect player

Forehand: Henin
Backhand: Serena
Volleys: Mauresmo
Movement: Peer
Serve: Serena
Dropshot: Hingis
Lob: Clijsters

It's not reall fair to include the mental categories because those are such intangibles.

Re: The perfect player

Are we only talking about current players...?

"To watch Graf on a tennis court in her most exalted of moments was to watch a Buddha in meditation. She was one with her work, and together they were one with the world."- Steffi Graf

" I don't think I should be underestimated. "- Lindsay Davenport

“She reminds me a bit of myself, how she’s fearless.”-Martina Hingis on Maria Sharapova

Re: The perfect player

Steffi Graf.
