Clean strokes, mid-level power, excellent placement/precision, but she can be weathered.

Horrible movement, can't defend against the multitude of players that hit harder than her (almost all of them have excellent H2Hs with her, Serena, Venus, Kvitova, Davenport, Sharapova, etc.)

Serve is just mediocre. Doesn't DF a lot but doesn't hit aces either. Decent placement, but nothing to be worried about. Second serve predictable and attackable.

Overrated. Even her peak tennis isn't that impressive.
And? People voting for Hantuchova aren't talking about how "great" she is, just that she's better than Chakvetadze and Kerber.
