It looks like she's just going to push it back in court at first, then BLAMdowntheline.

Love it.

Definitely the biggest forehand. That was a monster weapon.

makes me realize how much I miss her

I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.

Sprem is up there too.

Venus vs Sprem in Berlin SF was an incredible match of power tennis.

Man, she spanked the ball that first point! I agree though, Mary's forehand is the most unstoppable one I've ever seen when it's on.

Re: And who has the biggest forehand in WTA?

Hantuchova having a big forehand?

Mary Pierce's forehand is not even right. She can overpower Serena and Venus when it's on. Sadly, it isn't on.
Serena's forehand I would have said, but she is spinning it too much.

Right now, I guess it's Ivanovic. However, I don't like her.

I sort of agree though I haven't seen much of Davenport since her return just two matches where they featured her handsome son. Adorable little kid and so well behaved it seems.

Now back to the main post, yeah Davenport has the most consistent forehand at least right up to her retirement for the past three years, before that Serena's forehand was much more of a weapon than anyone else's forehand especially when she needed it most.

Since the Aussie '05 final we haven't seen much of that form on the forehand, until this years aussie open final coincidentially. So yeah you are pretty spot on, her forehand return is otherworldly when she's playing with that form. (this is mostly due to her lack of play, form and fitness overall for sure).

Ivanovic and Vaidisova hit the forehand the biggest but in bouts at a time, they still are too inconsistent and erratic so far. Unlike Mary Pierce per se or Serena's forehand it seems when you go right at their forehand Ivanovic's and Vaidisova's forehand do break down.

At one point Dementieva had the biggest forehand but it's not the biggest at the moment but it will remain top 4 for sure especially off the return. She can be as menacing as Serena's which is no small compliment.

The thing with Venus' forehand is that it's actually funny, the harder you push her forehand the better she hits it.

"Ability may get you to the top, but it takes character to keep you there" Unknown ???

Hoping to see great tennis from Lindsay Davenport, Monica Seles, Mary Pierce, Amelie Mauresmo, Elena Dementieva, Jelena Jankovic and Ana Ivanovic. Venus's backhand rocks!!!!!!!!!

Hingis will always sparkle in my eyes because
