Very true, but Martina coped very well with the 2 Williams,Seles and, to a lesser extent, with Davenport and Mary Pierce´s power.She was just so smart and talented, and she was the real last good volleyer on the women´s tour (Davenport was also great at the net and so was Kournikova, martina´s great doubles mate)

As for Hana, give her a medium powered racket, and she´ll crass anytime Sabatini and Sanchez ( if inspired enough of course, otherwise it is not Hana).Not so sure, of course, against Seles.She also had some sort of complex against Graf, too.
