Exclamation ALL-TIME TENNIS POLL?? (Nominate now!: Favorite player of all-time, Best match, etc)

Well, I was inspired by the "Favourite player of the top 100" thread, and I thought "Why not make a poll for our favourite player of all-time period?"

And since I'm trying to make this thing official, I thought it would also be cool to include a "Best Match", "Best Groundstrokes" and "Best Serve" polls altogether.

So make your nominations, and the ten most voted options will go straight to a Poll in a new thread.

Here are the categories:


FAVOURITE PLAYER OF ALL-TIME:

BEST MATCH:

BEST FOREHAND:

BEST BACKHAND:

BEST SERVE:

BEST VOLLEYS:



VOTING CLOSES DECEMBER 26TH (0:00 am GMT!)

SO HURRY UP!
(Only one pick per category)

Re: ALL-TIME TENNIS POLL?? (Nominate now!: Favorite player of all-time, Best match, e

Favorite player: Venus Williams.

Best match: Not of all-time but the match that I was like, HUH!!!! when watching it the entire time? Wimbledon 2005 F and USO 03 SF. Let's go with Wimbledon 05 F.

Best Forehand: Have to go with Graf.

Best Backhand: Anyone who says Henin is a fool. Henin's backhand looks pretty but her forehand was so much more lethal than her backhand. Let's go with Evert.

Best Serve: Really? Duh. [I guess I have to say it - Serena Williams.]

Best Volleys: Navratilova.

Why did you forget the smash or overhead and lob because you hardly see them now and you are all too young to remember that the older players used these strokes.

Re: ALL-TIME TENNIS POLL?? (Nominate now!: Favorite player of all-time, Best match, e

The only one I can honestly answer is my favorite player of all-time and that would Elena Dementieva.

There are just too many great players and matches I didn't see. But I'm glad to have seen the ones I did.
