Vee in 00 and 01 was unreal on the drive, so aggressive, fearless just going for the winner, it was back to that level at Wimbledon 05, shame her drives were completley off against jankovic at this yrs Wimbledon, she could hardly make a drive or a smash in the 3rd then :sad:

Venus' swing volley is extremly powerful and wins her many points, in the Wimbledon 2001 finals she hit a swing volley winner when the ball was below the level of the net (she scooped the ball up at knee level!) !But sometimes she could miss one by miles when she gets over excited.
Hingis' swing volleys are not necessarily powerful but are extremly well placed and sometimes she steps in on a short ball to hit a swing volley instead of waiting for it to bounce which surprises her opponents... but her lack of power on her swing volleys sometimes allow her opponents to reach the ball, but she's ready at the net to hit the volley.
Tough choice between these 2 but I'd have to go with Hingis on this one...
