I think Safina's weakness is that she can't deal with variety.

I would just add that they all seem to have problems with mentality now and then.

Re: Best and Worst Aspect of the Top 10?

i think since the left wrist injury of vera her forehand is just as strong as her backhand if not stronger. but her backhand is slowly getting better and better again.

Disgaree on Sharapova, her best weapon is the forehand. With Jankovic it´s a tie between the movement and backhand imho. The backhand down the line is the best in women´s tennis. Biggest weakness is the forehand not the serve. Because of that topspin swing, it´s too slow and she can´t get any power behind it. It prolongs points and weakens her rare net attacks. She could shorten so many points, if she could hit winners or hard flat approach shots from the forehand.

Re: Best and Worst Aspect of the Top 10?

If I had to choose one I would choose movement over her backhand but I am aware of her magnificent backhand too.

I disagree, her serve, especially the second serve, is extremely attackable. Her forehand at least is consistent and can hit winners occasionally.

Re: Best and Worst Aspect of the Top 10?

I disagree with Aga's mentality... many matches such as her win over Sharapova in the US Open and also her win over Kuznetsova at Wimbledon this year prove her as pretty mentally tough. I'd still say her like of firepower and attacking game.
