Pefect motion of each shot

Which player has the best motion of each shot? I'm not talking about the best shot here.

Serve: Meg Shaunessy
Forehand: Jennifer Capriati
Backhand: Anna Krounikova
Volley: Lisa Raymond

The only one of your picks that I agree with is Lisa Raymond's volley. Capriati's forehand, while lethal, is hit off her back foot and any high school tennis teacher would have a beginner's head for that. She generates that great force with her core strength and hip rotation but it's not a great motion. Now that I've been nitpicky , here are my picks:

Serve: Serena Williams (even makes Lindsay look like she has a hitch)
Forehand: Lindsay (meets the ball out front and doesn't move her head)
Backhand: Venus, Amelie (Vee for the two hand and Amelie for one)
Volley: Lisa Raymond, Virginia Ruano-Pascual

Lindsay does have a slight hitch but still a nice motion.

Serve: Serena
Forehand: Lindsay
Backand: Venus/Kim
Volley: Anna

"And for the best of the teen-agers who followed her, and who occasionally referred to her as over the hill, Graf had a ready answer: against top-ranked Martina Hingis, Graf wound up 7-2. Graf's stirring 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 throttling of Hingis at the French Open final this June was perhaps the most emphatic parting shot the game has ever seen. "

Serena's forehand should not be taught to average players. She has the muscle which makes it possible for her to hit that forehand. But her motion isn't exactly perfect. I'm dead sure of this.
Justine's backhand is single handed so it's not fair to Anna to compare their backhands. I don't think Serena's serve minus power is that nice.

This is about motion not power. If it were about power I'd take Venus' first serve, but it isn't it's about motion, and Serena Williams is widely praised for her service motion, and serve "Best on WTA tour"

justine's forehand is too often errant, jenn hits off her backfoot.

Serve: Serena
Forehand: Lindsay,Evert
Backhand: Monica/Evert/Venus/henin

Forehand: Serena Williams, Jennifer Capriati
Backhand: Lindsay Davenport, Venus Williams, ONE-HANDED : Justine, Amelie
Volley: Chanda Rubin, Ai Sugiyama


serena
townsend × rezaï × lisicki × vesnina
