Serve

Serena: Has the best overall serve in the wta. She places them very well and its very difficult for her opponents to read them.<br />


<br />Return<br />This is between Lindsay and Monica. Lindsay has more of a power return, and Monica has pace but great angles!<br />


Court Coverage<br />Venus Williams, can get balls where no one can't (except maybe Serena), and great reach.<br />

Serve: I would pick Serena Williams, her serve isn't only powerful, but she can hide and place it very well. Lindsay is a close second, it's also very powerful and well placed and hidden but I think Serena's is slightly more effective.

Return of serve: well, this is a difficult one and I would go for three players: Serena, Lindsay and Monica.<br />Lindsay and Serena are able to hit devastating returns, very powerful and accurate.

However, I stand with Monica on this, simply because her incredible ability to read serves. Monica waits for the serve stepping on the court and she reads it as nobody else can.

Court coverage: I'll go with Venus on this, her long legs, speed and reachment along with the ability to hit winners on the run or out of balance are responsible for a big deal of her recent success (more than the serve and power IMO).<br />Elena Dementieva, Amanda Coetzer, Martina Hingis, Jennifer Capriati also have great court coverage.

Serve

Serena although Venus is closing in. Serena's form is still better than Venus' and probably always will be. Serena also has a greater variety of placement and a change of pace that throws off opponents.

Return

Lindsay is the standout in this department. Monica gets credit because she is able to return with a 2-hander on both sides and that takes some superb reflexes but it's also a disadvantage.

Coverage

Venus. Her speed and reach allow Venus to get to shots that so many other gals just wouldn't be able to return.

Anyone who says Lindsay's return of serve is better that Venus' has got to be in denial. Venus gets to serves Lindsay would only look at and watch go by. lol

Serve:

Serena Williams: she has a perfect motion in her serve, & it's so hard to read. Anyway if she could add a little more variety that what she already has she surely be unstoppable(well she's almost unstoppable now, but she could be better)

Return:

Martina Hingis: this may sound weird but i think that what makes Martina the one who returns best is that she thinks each points pretty well & she has an awesome strategy, but with a little more of power she can climb back into the Number One because she has lots of talent.

Court Coverage

Kim Clijsters: she's the fastest player in the tour though Venus has bigger legs that makes her be the second one in court coverage. But Kim is far more fast, she returns almost everything but she needs to think a little more the point. I think that training with Lleyton helped her alot in becoming one of the best players who covers the court best.

I also like Davenport's serve, her service motion is amazing & the way Coetzer & Arantxa cover the court so well.

Peace

Great Gugamuga

Serve- Serena with Venus coming in as a tie this year. Venus serving may not be as sound as Serena's but it is effective. Especially these past two years. She can serve u off the court when it matters. (BIG POINTS) Lindsay's is third because this year it has been slightly easier to read. Especially on the one out wide. Also the fact that Venus beat her in the slams this and last year is telling.

Return-Venus. I think alot of people underestimate Venus's improved returning this and last year. She was cracking returns against Lindsay and Wimby in 2001 and 2000. Also was cracking them against Jennifer at US Open. and during her hardcourt season. Serena and Lindsay are great returners but haven't been as effective these past couple of years as Venus. In fact during the OZ 2001 semi against Jennifer Lindsay kept over hitting. Oh hell I am giving it a 3 way tie. Serena/Venus/Lindsay. Monica Seles has a great return but not up to par as the top 3. She does use two hands.

Court coverage- Venus Williams, especially at the net. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">
