Who can hit a baseline winner with Venus defending the baseline?

Consistently I mean, like enough to get up to 20 winners in a match.
Players I've seen do it in the past year or so include ,,,,

Serena, Justine, Kim (I'll take help with this) Lindsay, Monica, Elena D (I think) ...

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

Anna possibly did it...I think in Key Biscane in the finals and maybe in Stanford when Venus won 6-4, 7-5.

I could be wrong...I'm not much into Anna

depends where the match is played on

I'd say alot more people would be able to hit winners on the red stuff due to wrong footing.

Serena, Lindsay, Justine consistently (although even this is dependent on surface).

Jen (only because Venus is not as aggressive as Serena), Kim, Elena D inconsistently. I included Kim cos she defeated Venus at Hamburg.

Jen and Elena D's forehands will always cause Venus problems.

Oooops nearly forgot Monica, but she would fall in inconsistent category.

Elena Dementieva AFR

Egg - Expound on Petrova a little. Everyone else is 'the usual suspects'.

Me~~~

If Venus let me get into the ball, I'm sure I can hit baseline winners with my forehand. ( My forehand flat stroke is the only part of my tennis game I'm proud of. )

Maybe,.... Andre, Pete or Safin can do that.

LOL.

I think a lot of people forget how hard Dokic hits the ball.
