David, wash your mouth out!!
Arantxa had lots of weapons, they were just unconventional. I dont mean biological or chemical weapons, I mean her tenacity and consistency. Circa 1994 those were as intimidating for opponents as Steffi's forehand. And her net talents were better than most (#1 doubles player on several occasions), we just didnt see them very often. Its hard to be 5'6" and spend much time at the net in singles, no matter how good you are.
I agree that she made the most of her abilities though, and was the one of the hardest working players on tour, which is in my opinion what enabled her to step up a level from Pierce, Huber, Coetzer, Date, Tauziat, Fernandez et al
