    got it off wikipedia, try going there mate'...;)

    An aggressive baseliner tries to win the point by hitting winners from the back of the court, attacking with fast balls that the opponent cannot reach or return properly. He may not try to win the point outright with one shot, but instead may hit the ball from side to side until he spots an opening. Aggressive baseliners normally have at least one great groundstroke (often the forehand).

    An aggressive baseliner can overpower and overwhelm any opposition. However, when going for winners, he can produce many errors.

    Some all-time great aggressive baseliners are Bill Johnston, Ivan Lendl, Andre Agassi, Jim Courier, Monica Seles and Steffi Graf. Most active players today are aggressive baseliners; a few notable ones are Marat Safin, Andy Roddick, Venus Williams, Serena Williams, Kim Clijsters, Maria Sharapova and Lindsay Davenport. In regards to the "power" game, Monica Seles has often been credited as the first player to use groundstrokes to such a devastating effect.
