She's given both Kim and Venus (two of the best movers) a lot of trouble with her drop shot. Does she have the best one on tour?

THE BEST??? No. One of the better ones? Perhaps. She certainly uses it a ton.

Hingis' used to be the best but Justine has replaced her with the best drop shot.

I wouldn't say Jelena has the best one. In my opinion it's Justine with the best dropper on tour! And I really wouldn't say that Venus had all that much trouble with it!!

Speaking of "Jelena," Dokic's dropper used to be really good back when she played her best tennis (2 years+ ago :eek::sad: )

Yeah, why did Jelena D. stop using the drop shot?

She gave Venus trouble with her dropshot??

What match were you watching, because Venus was all over that dropshot.

Yup, I only remember ONE dropshot in which she actually fooled Venus on.

Henin...but Kostanic can surely give JHH a run for her dropshot.

I think she was seduced, as not a few other players have been, by the idea that players were winning by just hitting the ball hard. If you believe that, you work on your pace, not things like dropshots.

I love how when people call Venus finished and then compliment her so that they can compliment their own player. :rolleyes:

I have seen Kim hit some decent drop shots off her backhand when she takes the ball early. Lindsay hit a KILLER drop shot off her backhand against Nadia in the semis of Amelia. It just flowed so beautifully. She also hit one in the final against Amelie. Sometimes I don't think Lindsay gets enough credit for her touch and great hands.

The best drop shots usually come from one handed backhanders because disguise is a big factor.

In my opinion, Maleeva and Mandula have the best drop-shots :)

Can't remember Jelena's one...

i think patty has one of the best drop shots in terms of fooling her opponent. It can be hideous though

Hingis had the best drop shot.

Now maybe Patty

Speaking of Suissies, Manu's is good. Ah, if only the rest of her game were so.... :sad:
