This so much. Just because she doesn't have to pull the variety out to beat players doesn't mean she doesn't have it.



This match shows her tennis IQ >>>>

Her placement and disguise on her serve (as always) to set up the v-plays, her slices, using topspin-heavy shots to work Henin off the court and give her no pace, the wrong-footing.

Part of her tennis IQ is that she knows she doesn't need to use it to win, so only uses it when it's needed. In this sense, she has one of the best shot-selections on tour.

Radwanska and Hingis are so similar it is impossible to tell

Re: Which players have the highest 'TENNIS' IQ?

I agree that Radwanska and Hingis have similiar games but Hingis executed it much better, both patiently wait for the oppostion to make a mistake before they pounce but Hingis just did it with such grace and guile like no other player could ever equal her variety, Aga pales in comparison but I do like her game, it has the same variety which is much needed in the 'ball bashing' hum-drum tennis we see too much of today. Off court Hingis also played chess, spoke 5 languages fluently and acquired a great study in the 'male species' of which she became quite an expert on!

I agree, but her tennis IQ only developed last year i think, she is more tactical now than ever. She uses different shots.

Re: Which players have the highest 'TENNIS' IQ?

IQ can immediately be noticed by the way a person articulates an argument. Those saying Radwanska because of her "craftiness" and variety are beyond comical.

Re: Which players have the highest 'TENNIS' IQ?

Serena is so much smarter on the court these days, i never would have considered her a couple of years ago.

Legend still holds court here though, the way she played some top players was amazing.
