Who do you think is the most frustrating to play against?

If you would ask all the players on the WTA, who do you think would come out on top as the most frustrating to play against?

A few years ago this question was asked to Amanda Coetzer, and she replied Hingis because she was able to hit with her, she would always feel she had a chance, because you know, Coetzer is a consistent player, and she could surely run down most of Martina's shots, but still she'd lose in 2 easy sets most of the time.

Who do you think it is now?

Anna Pistolesi for her endless shot returning?
Maria Sharapova for her annoying shrieks?
Lindsay Davenport because she looks frustrated and not motivated but she'll still beat the crap out of you?
Daniela Hantuchova because she's so skinny it almost makes her invisible?

Share!

Either Serena or Venus. I think they can make you feel VERY IRRELEVANT! I mean either they make the error or hit the winner. You don´t even have NO IMPACT WHATSOEVER on the match...well, other than make sure they make more errors than winners.

Umm... I might be stating the obvious, but wouldn't it be Serena since she'd wipe the floor with you and humiliate you in front of thousands of people?

No.
Because if you're just an average player, you'd just be worse than Serena, no shame in admitting someone's better than you.

Conchita would make you make so many errors it would look like you can't even play the game of tennis, that you didn't even start playing until yesterday, but in fact you've been doing it your whole life, it's all you do.

Anna P would just annoy the crap out of me if I was playing her, I think I would just tell her she could have it if she was that desperate for it!!!!lol

And also Vivi has a frustating game, cos she doesn't have a lot of pace.

And It Hurts With Every Heartbeat

Pst, pst, Martina has retired in case you didn't know. The question in the thread is "Who is the..." not "Who was the..."

I know, I know... reading skill can be a problem!

Er, actually Martina has not retired, there has been no official announcement yet. Dur! Anyhow, Martina has played against all the current players bar a few of the very young ones so I think she counts.
