Re: Who has the best drop shots in the top 10?

Clay courters generally have better drop shots...Ivanovic has decent drop shots..radwasnka has the best drop shots in the top 10
Tho I don't like her I think Chakvetadze has quite good drop shots....

No-one has Martina like drop shots sadly.

Re: Who has the best drop shots in the top 10?

I think of the top ten Aga has easily the best dropshots. Great racket skills and deft touch. She disguises them well too. After her either Jankovic or Safina.

Of course there are many players outside the top 10 who also have great dropshots. Overall I wouldn't say the top 10 as a group are that much better at dropshots than a lot of the players further down the rankings.

Re: Who has the best drop shots in the top 10?

Radwanska
followed by Chakvetadze and Jankovic

But Hantuchova and Schnyder are the best dropshotters in the game IMO

Anastasia Myskina


Radwanska - S. Williams - V. Williams - Kerber

Re: Who has the best drop shots in the top 10?

Ah! Just as I was voting I saw Radwanska's name at the bottom of the list. I forgot she was in the top 10!

Venus Williams
Serena Williams

Re: Who has the best drop shots in the top 10?

People vote for Sharapova, and I think they vote for hers not because they're the best but because where she places them after she's run someone ragged is the best timing for it.

I have to go with Aga and Jelena. I do agree that Hantuchova and Schnyder have great ones, Schnyder the best with some of that spin, though I think Agnieszka knows when to use them better.

Re: Who has the best drop shots in the top 10?

Radwanska easily.

Dementieva, Serena, Sharapova all have the worst.

I don't ever recall seeing Ivanovic hit a drop-shot TBH.

Grassonkova.
