But if Sabatini was dealing with Davenport clocking the crap out of the ball to her BH and was driving through it, then she should at least be on the short list of stellar women's 1HBH.
Henin did pretty well with her 1HBH against the Williams sisters. I'm sure there are examples where she didn't, but matches I remember seeing she could hang at least, and could win more than once.
Gaby had to deal with Steffi's forehand most of her career. Most of the rallies where Gaby bh agaisnt Steffi's inverted forehand.
