You give new skills for your top 3!

So, you can give your top 3 players a new weapon, skill, ability - who are the players and what would they be? Wishes can come true!

My list:

Jennifer Capriati: A booming first serve that would be the hardest and fastest in the game. She would average an ace a game, and follow her good serve into the net and smash the winner!

Monica Seles: new feet that could chase down anything. She is still a great striker of the ball, just needs new wheels!

Serena Williams: She has been so blessed with talent - think she is fine without me adding. This is a compliment, (before anyone gets on me for not giving her anything).

Venus: (o.k. - I get a fourth because I did not give Serena a thing). I would give her a more consistent forehand that could crack winners from anywhere!

LOL, Serena isn't flawless! She's had 3 losses already.

I would give Serena more consistency and a better netgame, but then again I'm not a fan.

Anyways, for Justine: A booming serve that can be mixed up with slices and spins.

Glenn,

I know that Serena is not flawless. Truth be told though, when she is on - she is still the hardest player to beat - and the reigning #1 player in the world.

3 losses when we are half way through the GS season is nothing to sneeze at.
