Who hits the hardest?

I think Casanova hits harder than Serena or Venus at some points

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

I don't think so Rhythmboy, though it's true that Casanova gives everything.
Serena is definitely the hardest hitter.

The key is not ONLY hitting it hard. That's what makes the Williams so effective. They have more game.

Hardest hitters:
Lucic
Davenport

Lucic is the hardest bloody hitter i have ever seen.
She has a very similar stroke production to Mary Pierce......just more powerful!

Yes, Lucic is unbelieveable, but she doesn't hit it in enough!

Visit MONICA!

Mirjana Lucic is the most powerful groundstroke hitter ever in ladies' tennis.

Venus has the hardest serve.

Hardest hitters: (not in any order)

Lucic
Venus
Serena
Pierce
Davenport
Capriati
Huber
Mikaelian
Rubin
Stevenson
Bovina
Dementieva
Clijsters
Tulyaganova
Petrova
Graf

Allof these can take over a rally and dominate on groundstrokes

Kournikova has a pretty hefty forehand too...

Mirjana Lucic hits the ball harder than anyone else I've seen. Her problem is that she generally hits it out.

This race is so close between about 20 players that it is almost impossible to choose a winner.

Doesn't Lucic know how to play the points, to slow down and get the ball in sometime?

She hits every ball flat like a laser. It is amazing if it goes in. If it goes out, it is a disaster.

Yes. not any spin really at all. Just pure power! When i saw her she seemed identical to Mary Pierce..... except Mary plays with some topspin and less power.
Geez. She really just smacked the shite out the ball.

When Lucic is 'on' ----which is very rare indeed.....her opponents just don't have time to recover from shot to shot. But unfortunantly.... Mirjana cannot sustain any sort of consistency!
