Do you personally feel that bigger girls (i.e. Davenport) make better players than skinnier players (i.e. hantuchova).

Personally I think so....... I mean you have pierce, serena, venus, seles, stevenson, dokic, bartoli etc. their ball striking ability when on or just on a regular basis is unmatched, by some of the smaller girls.

Doesnt ball striking ability matter more than, superd athletic ability?

It sure helps.

If you're tall and have natural big muscles, you're going to have muhc more power than someone like Nuria Llagostera Vives.

And a lot of players could be top 10/top 20 players if they had a better serve due to their height or more power.

It definitely helps to be tall, and it probably helps to be more muscular, but I don't think it helps to be bulkier. Looking at which players have dominated throughout the history of women's tennis (and also just tennis in general), I think the ideal body type would be about 6 feet tall, skinny and moderately muscular.

"Dies"?:scratch: You mean does.

Yes it matters, tennis is also an endurance sport and skinny girls tend not to be able to last as long out there. When Venus is too skinny it affects her stamina. Also in sports, bigger, faster, stronger never hurts. :D

Bartoli is TINY. Seriously I've seen her live and she's a small little thing compared to most others on tour.

I worked out the average height of 2009 female RG seeds recently - it was about 1.74m or nearly 5' 9". That's nearly 5" taller than average in the developed world.

Skinny is great for endurance - look at marathon runners.

But tennis isn't a pure endurance sport - matches can be long, and you might compete daily in week-long tournaments, so it needs an element of endurance, but also the ability to produce bursts of power. So I guess that's why tennis players tend to have a balanced physique - not super-bulky, but not ultra-skinny, either.

Look at these women
Davenport: Came on tour 200+ pounds was still whooping hiney
Pierce: Davenport build but shorter
Seles: -19 People still called her fat she weighed in the 130s. 19+ seles was about 150+ and she could wack the heck out of the ball and she didnt have horse stamina.
Venus: I have seen her in person she is not small, she is nicely porpotioned :)
Serena: Same

But basically Pierce and Davenport they were considered big and look their better than alot of todays and yesterdays players.

It depends on what year you saw her. Even Venus at her skinniest is around normal size, but to be an athlete she has to be bigger than that. Venus' weight has fluctuated 15 pounds up and down for about 9 years. Her ultra skinny points being summer 2003 when she obviously couldn't train due to injury and 2007 when the anemia was really bad.

I saw her in mid-late 06'.

She is tall has mentioned but she was pretty muscular and thick looking.

it certinaly helps to be taller... but its more about natural timing and how much effort one puts into training and improving..
