Top 5 players on tour with the best net play

I saw Kanda's thread with the top 5 FH and BH, so i thought i'd make one about net play. Who are the Top 5 players on tour with the best net play? Doesn't have to be in any particular order

Shvedova-Muguruza-Garcia-Lisicki

Re: Top 5 players on tour with the best net play

Not sure if they're best, but I would say Martic, Kirilenko and Rybarikova. They have really great touch at the net. From current Top 10 players Radwanska and Stosur.

Queen Bethanie.

Her net play can be down right ridiculous at times.

And here you are, a black unicorn.
Mythical and mystical since the day that you were born.

Stosur is so overrated she has such a terrible net play.

Re: Top 5 players on tour with the best net play

Right now or career?
Venus in her career, not as good now
Petrova has tremendous touch. Doesnt know how to get to net in singles
Azarenka is very good at net. I've seen a ton of her doubles with Chakvetadze & Kuznetsova & Kirilenko

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Re: Top 5 players on tour with the best net play

Are we talking singles players only? If not, then Lisa Raymond should be there.

Re: Top 5 players on tour with the best net play

These lists just show how bad the women's game has gotten at net.

Radwanksa? Venus?

I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.

Vinci is incredible based on what I've seen from her this Open
