    Serve - Ivanisevic (Either his or Sampras, but I chose Ivanisevic because the lefty serve is more natural to go down the T in the deuce court and go out wide on the AD court mainly to the backhand of a right hander, which is normally the weaker shot)
    Forehand - Federer (can basically do anything with it, huge power and has great angle)
    Backhand - Safin (Either him or Agassi, but Safin can do more with it, better angle, slice)
    Volley - Mcenroe (As natural as it gets, his feel at the net is clearly the best there has ever been)
    Agility - Borg (Human wall)
    Mental - Sampras (Played till the end, cool and calm)
    Returns - Agassi (first player to make this a real weapon, more so than Connors, took the ball early)
