Whose shot would you rather have?

Venus's FH or Wozniacki FH? One is steady but extremely unremarkable, while the other is very volatile but also too unreliable.

At the end of the day, you have to find the right balance, but if you can't what would you rather have, a shot which can hurt you as much as it can hurt your opponent or a shot that wont give away as many free points but your opponent will control it?

Re: Whose shot would you rather have?

Venus' forehand is now her weapon rather than her backhand, so I'd take that over Wozniacki's push wing.

Re: Whose shot would you rather have?

Anyone who takes Wozniacki's forehand over Venus's forehand has already shot themselves in the foot.

Venus's forehand won her Wimbledon 2008 IMO.

Venus, Comparing Wozniacki is just making fun of her.

Vee's forehand owns now. Not unstable under pressure anymore, quite reliable actually.

Re: Whose shot would you rather have?

Sure Venus makes some really wild errors off of it, but most of the time it is 5000 more effective than Wozniacki's o_o

You have got to be kidding me. Venus & Wozniacki should not even be mentioned in the same conversation. So my question to you is will you take Wozniacki's Forehand or Sharapova's?

As for your question I would take Venus's forehand over Wozniacki any day & in any other lifetime but now that I think about it I am not too shocked with this question seeing as though it is coming from someone who is actually expecting Sharapova to win the French Open.

GOD IS REAL

Re: Whose shot would you rather have?

From the poll Venus forehand

But I would love to have Lindsay Davenport΄s flat forehand, which is better than both!
