    martina navratilova because she could s+v amazingly and it was a thrill to watch her. Though I think it was even better when she was facing Evert. High quality tennis.

    Hingis was great all around. Just the smack talk she gave back to the Williams' was worth it. She also had great control an point construction. Plus, I thought she was pretty cute.

    After Hingis, I would say Henin. Just awesome from the ground. And, gave Serena some beatings.

    Sharapova is built like a man, no chest, big shoulders, scowl face, 6'2", I don't find her 'interesting', but yes Ivanovic is my 2nd favorite ever to Hingis.

    Yeah for tennis ability I'd watch Hingis, and for tennis looks I'd watch Hingis AND Ivanovic.

    Alona Bondarenko, Jelena Dokic, and Gabby Sabatini. Oh wait you meant game-wise. I would have to say Kournikova, I honestly really like her game, it is similar to Hingis's.

    Yeah Kournikova's game was pretty good, she moved the ball around the court a lot, could play any shot in the book technically well, just not the best judgement and a messy serve, but very entertaining.

    On grass Venus and Hingis are the 2 most entertaining. Remember Hingis in 1997 Wimbledon, that was incredible.

    In order:

    Steffi Graf and Monica Seles (They bring the best out of each other with their matches)
    Martina Hingis - Pure genius
    Justine Henin - A breath of fresh air
    Venus Williams - I love her sheer power
    Kim Clijsters - The splits!
    Anastasia Myskina - for her weird technique

    She doesn't have big shoulders. So, basically, you're saying she's built like a man because she doesn't have a Hollywood sillicone rack? That's what a women is?

    She does have big shoulders they're like the Olympic swimmer shoulders, and she is 6'2" and no rack, its not the no rack that makes her a man its the body overall. And I think her face is really unflattering, and she's known for arrogance in the lockerroom according to reports, ignores other girls etc.

    Me too! For her amazing fighting spirit (before the stabbing :cry:) but I also liked her personality and style. I still miss her. I haven't liked any other female player as much as her.

    Justine Henin easily. I started following her when she played Davenport in Montreal when she was really young. She was my favourite player ever since. I lost interest in the WTA once she retired.

    I loved watching Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario run all over the place-side to side at different parts of the court, forward to the net & back to the baseline-to return a ball. Sadly we don't see much of that anymore.

    I like crafty women players since the power just doesn't impress at all since the average men hit way harder. So Hingis, Patty Schneider, Date, and women like Loit. Of the "big" hitters, Henin was okay to watch.

    Yeah, but this is "of all time" so you gotta put Kournikova and Sabatini in there too.

    Hingis and the Serena Williams at a GS final. HINGIS IS THE most entertaining thing alive. She run here and there get the ball here and there, pisses people off here and there, EVERYTHING! Serena Williams is very highly entertaining to watch at a GS final. She just plays all out and we all know what she capable of. Up setting Safina like that? And Sharapova at 07? in less than an hour WOW.

    Seriously though, Hingis and Henin were fun to watch for their variety. Seles was always fun 'cause of her intensity and the way she scrambled around the court clutching the racquet with both hands. Navritilova's game was always exciting. And I like watching Venus on grass.
