Overpower? Kournikova? She was hitting the ball pretty strong herself, she definitely wasn't a big hitter, but you obviously didn't watch Kournikova during her best years. It wasn't that easy to overpower her - that's why she was comfortable playing Capriati (she basically owned her), that's why she had wins over Davenport, Seles, that's why she took Venus to three sets few times and Serena in their only meeting (although we can agree that both Serena and Venus are completely another league). Kournikova had troubles with all around players, with good footwork and passing shots, also with players that played with top spin. Vaidisova would be just like Capriati. Anna would take her out in two straight sets.
