Monica revolutionised women's tennis like only Navratilova and Graf had done before her - she took the game to another level and introduced power tennis. All the talk of how powerful the William's sisters are, who can beat them, etc., was around 10 years ago when Monica was at her best - the difference is that, naturally, the game has moved on and now players are hitting the ball even harder. I think you have to give credit to Monica, as she single handedly changed the face of women's tennis. Players had to hit the ball harder, be more aggressive to counter the early ball she hit. Now, it is the trend rather than the exception, and this all stems from Monica - that includes the William's sisters, as they freely admit themselves. There favourite shot, the drive volley, was brought to the game by Seles. Her influence can be found all over their backcourt game. The fact that Monica can compete against them shows just how good her game is. So credit where it is due please.
