    I would probably go with Sharapova because she hits with power and spin. The William sisters hit with a lot of power but not much spin.

    There should be a Sharapova vs Roddick match in which Roddick clearly has the better serve but from the baseline, its pretty close.

    Why multiple choice? There is only one "THE BEST" forehand.

    On a single choice poll I would vote for Ana Ivanovic.

    i picked Serena williams because it is clear that the williams sisters are the hardest hittting players on the wta,well one the most hardest hitting players, IMO. However, it is also been said alot of the times that the older sister Venu's forehand tends to breakdown under Pressure and long matches. So i chose Serena williams.

    I havent seen any other woman on the tour that hit as well through out the whole match as she does. I remember the AO Finals between sharapova and williams, Serena's forehand serve returns were the best ive ever seen in about a decade and a half.

    The last person that had that kind of returning was Graf.

    You should take Mirza off the list. I don't think she can even hit a forehand right now and needs to have wrist surgery.
