So to have them that far apart is impossible.

Also there is no way Dementieva, Azarenka, Ivanovic, and Clijsters are more powerful than Graf. Ivanovic's only powerful shot is her forehand, and even that is far less than Graf's was. Ivanovic the biggest forehand, LOL, Kvitova, Na, and Serena can all shred her off that side, even a 33 year old semi retired mommy Davenport did. Azarenka and Dementieva have only moderately good power at best.

Even Huber, Majoli, Maggie Maleeva, Myskina, Barbara Schwarz, Kimiko Date, Tulyganova, Nadia Petrova, and others hit harder than some of the women on the OP list.

Obviously winning junior slams doesn't mean a player is necessarily going to have successful pro career, but the recent US Open girls' champion Samantha Crawford is incredibly powerful, both with her serve and from the back of the court.

It will be interesting to see how she progresses over the next few years.
I didn't put up WS, Davenport and Pierce since I am already sure that they hit harder than any of these.

This list was for players I wasn't sure about.
