:oh:

:oh:I should've put an "other" option... it's just that Serena doesn't use it as often in her game as the those three seem to do. She's too busy pummeling groundstrokes than running around and sliding.

Anyway, before Empress retired from professional tennis last year, her. She's the only player I've seen hit a winner on a split.

Most of these splits are at the end of a point. Kim is the only one who has equal chances to win the point after and before a split. She's the only one back on her legs 2 seconds after it.

Actually, that's only the people who can split slide that are NOT in the poll, like Serena. :oh:

And Kim is not the only one who has equal chances, she throws up the defensive slice lob and it doesn't go deep ALL the time into the court like you make it. You haven't watched JJ or Zvonareva much if you think the only time they do the splits is when they lose the point. The advantage of sliding on the hard court is that you don't overrun the ball. The split slide is used to throw up a defensive lob. Clijster's defensive slice lob could only be considered marginally better than the other two, not as much as you make it out to be.

I don't recall seeing Vera split, but Kim certainly isn't the only one:

i love JJ's splits, but based on the two videos and what i've previously seen, her splits her pretty much redundant and she just splits at the end of the point (or what she thought would be) for the dramatic effect.

Kim is the best to me, she's the one using it the most.

When JJ does it, it's not really in her game, it's more like the end of a point and she just falls down. She rarely recovers to continue the points which Kim does often.

I believe during 2005 LA or San Diego, Saint Kim was chasing down a ball and did the splits into a potted plant that was decorating the court. :lol:

Kim uses it more and its more of a part of her game she uses it to stay in points and give herself a chance to get back into things rather than a last ditch resort to make someone have to hit one more shot.

Clijsters, because its so easy to her that she can then immediately recover and carry on the point. The rest are all finished once in the splits.

Your first video in a way kind of proves my point, it took her a while to get back up and she had to use her hand and everything, when Kim does it she doesn't even hit the ground, she's just on to the next shot. JJ might have been able to get up that time because Vera hit such a weak shot, but if it had carried on like a normal rally she would have been out of it, where as Kim is normally still in the point.

The reason Vera threw up that weak shot was bc jaja wrong footed her.. JJ i don't see your logic saying because jj hit an aggressive shot while splitting means that she only does it at the end of the point or when it's over. You guys are making it sound like whenever Kim does the splits, she hits such a good defensive lob that she resets the point but that is clearly not the case. Whenever Kim does the splits, along with jj they are in trouble.
