"The Magician" Of Women's Tennis

Who do you think would fit this role.
Are any of the girls Santoroesque.

Some that may fit the role

Bartoli - very angle based 2 hands
Niculescu and Voracova - hit a variety of shots

or maybe someone like

Radwanska or Hingis - who are very strategic

Who do you think, if anyone, could be called the magician of women's tennis?

Carol. Empress. Vika. P3tra. Garbine. Dasha. Casey. Marion.

Santoro is the Hingis of ATP.

Re: "The Magician" Of Women's Tennis

Hnigis, but of the current girls I'd say closest would be Radwanska. When her game is on her drop shots, lops, angles are amazing. I love when she drop shots an opponent bringing them to the net and then lobbing them, and running them side to side.

Can't think of anyone else at the moment.

Hingis of course! Nobody made a player more helpless, stupid or befuddled by her magical shots!

Re: "The Magician" Of Women's Tennis

Conchita Martinez used to be, I think. Now as it has already said here Radwanska, Schnyder and probably Anna Chak.

1.Renata Zarazua 2.Victoria Rodriguez 3.Ana Sofia Sanchez 4.Marcela Zacarias 5.Giuliana Olmos 6. Sabastiani Leon -. Marijose Portillo -. Nazari Urbina

Ana Ivanovic - Vika Azarenka - Vesnina - Sabine Lisicki - Laura Robson - Alize Cornet.

Myskina, Dementieva, Babsi, Sabatini & Gavaldon.

Patty no one else even comes close.

RIP Elena Baltacha, thank you for dedicating your life to a sport we all love. You'll be missed but never forgotten.
