Venus? Serena? Mary? Monica? Lindsay? Daniela? Martina :p? Jelena? Amelie? Jennifer?

My pick would be Iroda....she sure does KILL the ball!

mary is number 1 on my list, lucic and iroda is up there too, however, if you include power with control, they are waaaay behind the likes of serena and lindsay and venus.

definitely LUCIC!!!! i love Mirjana Lucic......I think shes the hardest hitter, but she just lacks so much control....even Steffi Graf said Lucic's power was Unbelievable...I saw some matches, she really nails that ball with all the power she has, but she needs control :)

Lindsay and jelena and Mary next

Mary Pierce

Serena, Mirjana, Lindsay, Elena Dementieva (forehand), Pierce (forehand), Schett, Mikaelian... there are more... but these are from the top 10.
I wasn't really impressed by Iroda though, she might have more control than Lucic, but she sure doesn't hit as hard!

lucic hits the ball the hardest. it is breaktaking her power, but this does not matter much in terms of winning grand slams becuase there are many other tactical and other consdierarions.

Serena, Monica and Mary

Before this year I thought Venus hits the ball harder than serena. But after I saw the wimbledon final I changed my mind. Serena definitely hits harder. Lindsay hits pretty hard too!

I don't think that Lindsay actually hits that hard. She just hits really flat, so it accelerates and doesn't slow down while in the air.

Mikaelian is also a very hard hitter, but her 'fitness' isn't nearly up to par!
