Man that's two people who think Venus has the best forehand. It's a great shot when it's on but she makes far too many errors with it on average. Ivanovic on the other hand absolutely dominates and controls points with her forehand, can hit it inside out, cross court and down the line with equal profiency and with pace, accuracy and serious weight.

Henin is the best off every single shot. I dont see a player who hits a better forehand or backhand for sure. Now that she has improved the agressiveness off her return of serve it too is as good or better then anyone else. Her volley is excellent and the best too now that Mauresmo is a has been who is no longer top player calibre. The only iffy one is the serve I guess, but the rest she is clearly the best right now. The only way she loses a match is if she has a mental breakdown like she did vs Serena in Miami, and vs that fat french chick in the Wimbledon semis. Nobody beats her on stroke play or court coverage or strategy at this point.
