Just curious what you guys think...

"Rebound Ace": Serena. She won the Australian Open this year, and she seems to ALWAYS be a competitor there, more than at any other grand slam.

Clay: Justine... no one has beaten her in a long time, and she seems to play her best at Roland Garros

Grass: Venus? when she gets past the first couple rounds, she's tough to beat. I don't know who else you'd say... Justine definitely isn't as good on grass... Amelie plays well but doesn't really have the results... Serena maybe, but Venus seems to be playing better now (even if Serena was hurt, blah blah blah, Venus is still in.) :shrug:

Hardcourt: This one is really tough. I used to think that Lindsay played her best in the summer hardcourt season, possibly the best. she never had the confidence/mentality at the US Open, but she was REALLY tough to beat in the Series. It could be Venus/Serena/Sharapova/Justine/ anyone really :shrug:

Vamos.

RA - Serena, no question.

Clay - Justine, no question.

Grass - tough. I would say, at their best, Amelie followed closely (v.closely) by Venus.

Hardcourt - Serena, but tough. Sharapova, Kimmy, Vee, Justine, Linds, Sveta and others are all closely behind.

Venus on grass & Serena on RA definitely. Henin on clay is sure.

On HC I think Venus, Serena and also Sharapova are best players in good form.

Grass - Venus without a doubt.
Clay - Justine by a mile.
Rebound Ace - Serena it comes very natural to her on RA.
Hardcourt- not a clear best player Venus, Serena, Sharapova in top form are all a sight to behold on it.

Rebound Ace: Serena, Justine

Clay: Justine, Svetlana

Grass: Venus, Maria

Hard: Serena, Justine

Love me some Venus, but she has not had good results on hardcourts in the last 3 years. Just keeping it real and giving Justine her props as the best all around player

I don' think so...Venus is by far and away both the best and the most prolific grass court player of her generation. If she wins her 4th wimbledon she will be among the greatest of the greats.

Serena is easily the best on hard courts for sure.

Clay is Henin as we all know.

Serena is by far and away the best on rebound ace.:devil:

It's tough.. If you look at the slams, Hingis is the best on RA, Hingis the best on clay and Venus the queen on grass and hardcourt
But in terms of game, I'd say:
RA: Serena
Clay: Henin
Grass: Venus and Sharapova
Hardcourt: Williamses and Sharapova

Okay, to put Mauresmo, Henin and Serena as options for revound Ace, and not martina hingis, is pathetic at best.

Martina is far and away the best rebound Ace player of all time. Let's compare records:

Mauresmo:
1 Australian Open Title.
1 Runner-up Australian Open Title

Henin:
1 Australian Open Title.
1 Runner-up Australian Open titles.

Serena:
3 Australian Open titles.
0 Runner-up Australian Open titles.

Martina:
3 Australian Open titles.
3 Runner-up Australian Open titles.


Martina has also won Sydney thrice, Mayresmo once, Henin once and Serena 0 times.

You tell me who the better player is on rebound Ace.
