Also i think we can all say from Evert's commentary her IQ off court is very low, so I highly doubt she turned into a genius on court.

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

a poll with multiple slam champions and all time greats + Radwanska? Seems legit.
Lets ask Petra Cetkovska about this.

Based on the criteria I used to define 'Tennis IQ' Radwanska makes a strong case to be included. and based on that same criteria there isn't much of a case for Cetkovska (assuming that's what u are implying... I really didn't get your reply to be honest).

Same goes for Bammer ..Coetzer on the other hand DOES meet the criteria and could be an acceptable player for consideration.

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

Serena Williams is the mentally toughest player in the history of the WTA. Her tennis IQ is tops.

Isn't Azarenka still No. 1 and Serena No. 3? Or by "our" you mean just yourself and your friend Simon? OK, Serena's rise is most likely but the fat lady has yet to sing.

Serena's tennis IQ is very underrated.

Agreed! Funny, but instead of having two "other type" options I thought about adding Davenport. But because she's not an obvious choice I didn't think she would get as many votes. You're right though, she was very smart on the court, especially the way I'm defining "smart".

Also I'm pleasantly surprised to see Serena acknowledged for her tennis IQ. I always thought she was the most underrated in that department, but maybe not.
