Not when she nearly always serves to Azarenka's BH.

Hingis and Radwańska. Bartoli is probably inteligent in her life, but on court she plays always simple game, always the same bashing, but maybe it's not about iq, she just lacks skills to play smart.

MARTINA HINGIS - LEGEND OF TENNIS IS BACK!

AGA - FUTURE SLAM CHAMP AND WORLD NUMBER ONE


SERENA WILLIAMS - GOAT

Bartoli. You can tell she's seriously smart off the tennis courts. I'll go with Aga as well.

Re: Which players have the highest 'TENNIS' IQ?

As much as it hurts to say.. Radwanska.

Note: I think we saw a match between players with the lowest tennis IQs yesterday! (Julia and Na)

Re: Which players have the highest 'TENNIS' IQ?

Our current Top 4 is our current Top 4 because of their higher tennis IQ. They all play in a way that maximises their strengths and minimises their weaknesses. I don't think I would put any of them higher than the others. Serena is number one, because she has the best strengths. Radwanska is 4 for the opposite reason.

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

Re: Which players have the highest 'TENNIS' IQ?

Navratilova.

First of all, she learned the game using wooden rackets on grass courts, and made the transition through metal rackets to composites, and from half the tournaments being on grass, through the transition to the hardcourt centric game of the 90's, making her serve and volley game work, while also being a skilled baseliner.

Simply put, she had the most skills, used them on the most diverse platforms, and mastered the most different types of games. Plus, before today's super-tech rackets, players HAD to know how to build points, not just rally til they got a short ball. I don't laugh at people picking Radwanska over Navratilova, because they didn't see her play. But you're with Navratilova, you're talking about a different order of experience, and vastly superior ability to gameplan and execute.

The woman won a main draw match at Wimbledon in 2004, when she was 47 years old!

However, sticking to current and recently retired players, how on earth is Radwanska getting more votes than Serena or Justine Henin!?!?

Re: Which players have the highest 'TENNIS' IQ?

Although I have never been much of a fan of hers, I have to say Justine Henin. Out of currently active players, definitely Aga.

Seriously? I seethe everytime Radwanska steps on the court but I can put that aside and say behind Hingis (who was the GOAT at this and in a different level) she probably takes the cake.
