Re: Best Shot In Women's Tennis History?
Some of these posters clearly haven't seen any of Evert/Graf/Nav at their peaks
They'd beat all of these jokers in straight sets. Seles would too for that matter.
Anyway, Serena's serve didn't completely eclipse every other person in that department. Although she definitely showed hers was superior to her sisters, Venus's serve at her peak just lacks the placement and consistency that Serena's does, however she still rarely loses points on it - the difference was her second serve.
Graf beat 3 generations worth of players with basically that one shot - her forehand. However, it has yet to have the impact on other players to adopt it.
Navratilova's serve was good, but it was her volley that stood out. Point blank - best of all time.
Evert's backhand never missed, and inspired 95% of posterity to adopt a similar version.
Justine's backhand is good, but not all-time special. Please watch some older matches.
