Serena's serve...she can win the whole field with just her serve alone I believe.

Serena's serve. No real competition here.
Graf's forehand. No comparison. The most destructive shot in WTA history.
Hingis' backhand. She could do everything with it (down the line, inside out, short angles, topspin lob, drop shot, one-handed slice) and could go sets without making a single error.
Nav's volleys.
Clijsters court coverage.

Steffi's forehand

Watch all the Sarin fans come in and say "You don't even get a chance to play a FH if you don't have a good serve"

Re: Which all-time great's best weapon would you most like to have?

The foundation of any great game is and should be a great serve,so I chose Serena's Hall Of Fame level serve.

Serena-Easily The #1-True-All-Time Greatest! You Are In A Class By Yourself.
Venus-Luv you.You rule with on court class.
Monica Seles-A Great Player and A Great Career
#22 FOR THE QUEEN!! "Serena Derangement Syndrome"is Real-You Sad Bitter Pathological Haters/Liars in the Tennis media And on TF-Nothing You Say Or Write will Diminish Her GREATNESS!!

Steffi's forehand. Nothing comes close to it imo.

Hingis should be up there for her on-court intelligence. Imagine if these young girls would play with an ounce of smartness instead of hitting the shit out of every ball with no tactics or point construction.

Jelena Dokic.Vera Zvonareva.Tatiana Golovin.Mary Pierce.Monica Seles.Martina Hingis.Anna Kournikova

Re: Which all-time great's best weapon would you most like to have?

You can't school me on Steffi's forehand, she's my childhood idol- I was right there with her cheering her on from the late 80s till her retirement. She basically invented running around your backhand to hit a forehand. And we all know how lethal it was. Now in all honesty, it wasn't always there for Steffi.

She had many matches were it was just off, although it was a winning shot on any given day it could go way off and Steffi could litter up an unforced error sheet like nobody's business- that never really gets talked about much. Evenstill it's a masterful stroke. And anyone with that kind of forehand is going to always be a favorite going into a match against most players.

Now with all that said, the answer is simple.

Serena's serve!

next question please...

STEFWHIT'S HALL OF FAME
Greatest Singles Player of All Time: Steffi Graf
Simply the BEST: Serena Williams [Proud MEMBER OF RENA'S ARMY]
The REAL GOAT Rafael Nadal
Future Inductees: Clijsters, C.Evert, A.Agassi, A.Berasategui, N. Zvereva, I.Majoli, M.Safin, Li Na, VIKA, and Del Potro

Serena has the best serve in the world

Serena Personal quotes - "I'm afraid I'm already a shopaholic. Fortunately, I'm no longer in denial, and the first step to recovering is getting out of denial."... Work it girl"
