Graf's FH is the best ever IMO but while she did come over her BH when playing net rushers I still wouldn't call her a big hitter off that side.
Of the current pros (aside from Serena and Venus) I'd say Kvitova is a very big hitter.
Wow, this is almost exactly the type of thing I would have wrote except you put it better than me.
Needless to say, I agree with you.
