    Poll: Re: Great strokes. 2nd SERVE, WTA

    Yeah. I can go for that. But looking at EVER, I would hesitate to get her in this list. As above, I had a hard time making up my mind with this stroke for the women (as opposed to the men's, where I...

    But this would be the same as a very bad injury, in the sense that the chances are slim but an entire career can be washed out because of that.

    Poll: Great strokes. Forehand, WTA.

    As with the men, a lot of contenders. But not the most. Some other shot will take that honor.

    Chris Evert. Still one extremely classical shot. Her TRAFFIC STOP left hand guided it and from there...

    Poll: Re: Great strokes. Forehand, ATP.

    As I said. There are too many good forehands. Delpo and Gonzo and Marat indeed. I left our Roddick's, even though he had a sledgehammer too. How about Jimmy Arias? For a moment there, his forehand...

    Now we come to perhaps the most difficult stroke to judge. The number of great forehands on the tour, through the ages, is enormous. It has been the bread and butter stroke for so many pros and,...

    That would mean 12,000,000 new cases (for four months, approx). Plus the known 2.6 million, it means 15MM (+/-). At 2% death rate, 300K dead. But that is only 4.5% of the USA's population (the 15MM)....
