djokovic and clijsters have the best splits as unlike jj, serena ect, they slide into a shot on hardcourts and carry on playing. jj, serena ect slide after a shot as a sort of pose.

JJ's is almost all dramatics.

Like poster above said, Kim and Nole use it when retrieving and it's actually effective.

side splits are much harder, and I've only seen Clijsters do it so consistently. It's one of the reason why I absolutely adore her game :lol:

nb/ just cause I think she overachieved and is overrated doesn't mean I don't like her as a person, and tennis player. :) Aussie Kim 4 eva.

no, I can't do it anymore :sad:

Djoko's one is great.Kim used to have the best one (by far) but it's not as good these days.Serena does it mostly when she goes for a winner on the run and I actually think JJ's split is underrated : it's quite effective at times and she can do it on all surfaces.

kim's is just as good as ever, she is just 28 now so only uses it when she really has to. this is from doha last year -

When I was in the 5th grade, yes. Now, not so much. And definitely not on the run, on a tennis court. If I did I promise you I wouldn't be getting back up.

When I was training I could do a full side split like the fella here. Now? :lol: Well I can do the kind in the Djokovic pic. Which ain't saying much IMO.

Yea right :spit:

We all know how you do suggestive poses, sex noises and splits whenever there is a hot guy playing tennis on the court next to yours.

Half the time JJ splits just for the drama. I remember Chris Evert going "Terrible drop shot, I give her a 10 on the split, though.." :lol:

But she does get back up and keeps on going if she can. There was this one point against Justine in Stuttgart 2007 (still on HC) where Justine ripped an overhead and JJ got to it, full splits, and then got to another one :hysteric:

I never really had too that I can remember. I was always really fast around the court. i never had to do a full on split. maybe a good stretch but not a split.
