Re: Single Greatest Shot of all time in Women's Tennis
My 2 favourite players are in this poll - Steffi's awesome forehand and Justine's majestic backhand, but despite that, Serena's serve is the best shot in women's tennis IMO - indeed, possibly in all tennis. This summer, she was just unplayable on grass. Such variety and consistency. Yes,ok, the current crop,of top'players aren't the best returners (notable that Aga gave her her toughest grass court victory) but as a weapon, it beats out the groundstrokes of the others in this poll as it is entirely in her control and she makes amazing use of it. Yes, it can have bad days, but working well I don't think there is a better single stoke in the game. Of course, Serena combines it with an astute tennis brain and incredibly intimidating court presence and focus.
