Caro does not realy fit in any of those categories VeeJJ set in he OP, and frankly I prefer s/he not add another just accommodate the Caros and Erranis of the worlds.

Shot making as I am big Lindsay fan and I love nothing more than a big winner.

I actually think atm that Serena has all of them.

Shotmaking ability

I don't think Azarenka's that tough mentally, she still erupts on court and DFs on crucial points. But no matter

Can anyone give some good reasoning as to where Kuznetsova belongs? I really don't know whether she belongs, athleticism or shot making, because she has a lot of both.

It is a tough one.
She is able to make some unbelievable shots when she is in superb athletic shape.
Inversely, she is also capable to make the lousiest, most idiotic shots when her athleticism has deserted her, i.e out of shape.

I wrote all this, and I am still unable to categorically state where she truly belong; because her shot making is supported by her athleticism, she does not always have it.
SO we are still where we started.

I think that is the definition of Kuznetsova. Not a damn clue.

Re: Would you rather have - Supreme Athleticism, Supreme Mentality, or Supreme Shotma

If I was a female tennis player ?

Well, thats a weird question, but my answer is- super looks. So I can get endorsment deals and don't give a damn about garbage like practice, rankings, slams etc.

Mentality. People can talk about her serve and athleticism all they want but Serena's mental strength is the reason she is the greatest ever.

Serena says tennis is 80% about mental strength. I think we can all trust her.
