We hear so much about how Lindsay has the best return... Martina the best mind, Venus the best backhand, Serena the best serve....etc. <br />Well ... this may be challenging to all the fans who don't look below the top 20.... <br />but who is the best on these game aspects in your opionion?

SERVE: Nadia Petrova, Alexandra Stevenson, Katarina Srebotnik, Alicia Molik

VOLLEY: Ai Sugiyama, Anna Kournikova, Miriam Oremans

FOREHAND: Rossana-Neffa De Los Rios (belts it), Denisa Chladkova, Iva Majoli (belts it), Elena Likohvtseva

BACKHAND: Tamarine Tanasugarn (accuracy) Martina Sucha, Adriana Gersi

MIND: Yoon-Jeong Cho, Conchita Martinez, Cara Black.

BEST OVERALL GROUNDIES (hard,consistent): Chanda Rubin, Iva Majoli(usually) Amy Frazier, Anne Kremer, Daniela Hantuchova, Daja Bedanova.

Myskina's FH ..... her BH is alot better

Lina would also be in BH category as would Petrova.

Anna also has a good BH, volley

Other good volleyers : Roberta Vinci/Cara Black

Since Mary Pierce qualifies for this category, I'd say she's got the best overall groundies and the best serve and forehand and backhand. Then again, they're probably not the best right this moment, and if these elements were at their best, then she wouldn't qualify for being below Top 20 because she'd be right at the top!!!!

Did any of that make sense???

HI!!!Im new, in my opinion the best serve is won by Hantuchova.<br />Volley: Virginia Ruano, of course <img src="graemlins/bounce.gif" border="0" alt="[Bounce]" /> <br />Forehand: Conchita <img src="graemlins/hearts.gif" border="0" alt="[Hearts]" /> <br />Backhand: Serna <br />Mind: Leon garcia

serve: bovina

or am i wrong. i certainly know she is always a top server (speed) with 110+mph serves in tournaments. but im not sure about the consistency. usually players who serve so hard, also have the consistency

<br />and what about movement ? who do you think has the best movement?

i think glancing at the EDDIE HERR U18 thread in the junior section should be self explanatory. plus it may introduce you to junior tennis <img src="confused.gif" border="0"> <img src="wink.gif" border="0"> <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">

<br />olga puchkova is my wife, in the future, i hope <img src="graemlins/drool.gif" border="0" alt="[Drool]" /> and a lucky loser named laura h from romania defeated olga after i gave her all the hype in the world. a few others also aided in hyping up olga, and it was really an upsetting loss. but really i think you should see the thread to really understand the magnitude of my crisis. know how much olga is my wife, and then combine this with how excited i was (youll see how excited!!!) and then the great upset that olga had.

<br />now look at my signature, its even better!!!!!!
