Perhaps “less obvious” choices are Davenport and Sharapova 04-06. They weren’t athletic but their footwork incredibly precise. Davenport especially as long as she had time she was rarely out of position and it’s as efficient as it can be.

Footwork is not something excel at just at your peak, for a couple of months.

Not everything is about peaks and primes.
Thank you for your generosity, blessing us with wisdom when we most need it.

Interestingly there was no "peak" or "prime" in my post. I mentioned Sharapova in a 2 year span, not two months. Even for the untrained eye, Sharapova was out of position numerous times later in her career and going for risky shots that she often missed. Her footwork most definitely disintegrated. A big contrast with the player who won 2006 USO hitting winners from everywhere on the court.
