??? When Mary won the French she was hitting angles nearly every second shot, it was great! (poor Conchi couldn't run them down :p )

Of course Martina is always good at it, and Venus when she thinks about it, so who do u think?

Monica. One time I saw her reel in a 16 pound Northern Pike, as calm as could be. She even scooped it up in the landing net with one hand while holding the rod with her other.

I've seen Jennifer hit some cross court forehands that were just amazing! Especially on the run!

Monica makes great angles from deep in the court hit hard that are BREATHTAKING.


Martina can create unbelievable short angles and hit those angles with increasing sharpness from in front of the service line a la AGASSI. They are also AMAZING.

So two different types of angles for two different types of players equally wonderful for me.

I am divided on this, I must say. If we talk controlled flat power angles, that's Monica. If we talk running forehand/backhand angles. That's perhaps , Venus. If we talk spin angles of typical baseline rally, that's Martina.

At this years Aussie final, Martina stepped yard or two in front of the baseline to take a relatively short backhand. She angled it halfway between the net and the service line, spinning off the court at almost 90 degrees. It was a slow shot, too, but Jen had no chance of getting to it.

She does that shot a lot. It's beautiful.

Well I would say u missed out the best and that is Conchi :), I saw her once in the Canadian Open against Martina they had a bit of a rally and then decided to have a who can get the best angle and win the point, Conchi just totally out angled Martina with the heavy topspin and in the end Martina just could not get to the ball., plus those angles that she created on winning Wimbledon against Martina N she just has to be up there.

I was also going to say vintage Martinez would be the best followed by Hingis and Seles. Sabatini and Sanchez at their peak produced some amazing angles with all their topspin too.
