Red face SEWTA Players Most Afraid To Come To The Net ???

OK so we have our serve volley players like MJMS and Stosur

then we have other players like Golden Flower JuJu, who look natural coming to the net and hitting a volley

but the rest of the tour are just stay at the baseline, either ballbashing or pushing ... I want to ask, which SEWTA Players are the most unnatural, awwkward come forward to the net ... these are the players that you will almost never see at the net unless their opponent dropshot them

in my opinion, I think Wickmayer, Wozniacki, Azarenka, Bartoli, NA-MUG

XWTA GOATs - Henin Li Pierce
XWTA Golden Flower GOATs - Duan Han Liu Lu Peng Wang Xu Yang Zhang Zheng Zhu
XWTA Non-Chinese Faves - Crawford Ivanovic Kvitova Muguruza Riley

Re: SEWTA Players Most Afraid To Come To The Net ???

this is a good thread! I want to learn too.

Anybody notice an ad? written on the net during Heng vs Woz? 'The best tennis net in the world' or something

Woz doesn't come to the net much voluntarily, I agree, but I think she reacts quite well against the opponents' net play.

Her speed, passing shots, lobs are quite good, methink..

Don't forget Venus. She's definitely not afraid of the net.

Azarenka is not afraid to come to net, You are judging that on her performance against Kim, which was just a bad day.

Re: SEWTA Players Most Afraid To Come To The Net ???

I disagree with Azarenka - yes, she was shocking against Clijsters (but every aspect of her game was in that match) but she can finish off points with conventional volleys and drive volleys even though they are still a work in progress.

I'd probably say Wozniacki, Petkovic and Safarova are up there.

Hlavackova, Strycova, Venus, Serena, Schiavone, Hradecka, Safarova, Cetkovska, Pliskova, Kasatkina, Putintseva, Ostapenko, Gasparyan

Sam Smith on Hlavackova

Lena D is like allergic to the net.

Maria Sharapova
Jelena Jankovic
| Kvitova | Wozniak | Azarenka | Marino | Dementieva (always) |

In love with Martha.

I don't think Lena D is allergic to the net. She just isn't a very good volleyer.

Maria Sharapova, now that's a player that's allergic to the net.

And we should probably pray to God and thank him that we don't have to see Maria coming to the net much

Maria's drives are pretty good and she has hit some good volleys too (probably due to her height.)

But she really doesnt need to go up there a lot. She has(had ) the groundies that could easily put away the short ball. MJMS needs to go up there, because once she makes a good attack, she needs to put the ball away directly.
