    Poll: Re: Great strokes. 2 handed BH, ATP.

    By accounts from long-time tennis journos, there was very little redeeming to Rios' personality. At least Kyrgios seems to have some decent angles.

    I imagine an accident would have already happened if it were in the plan.

    (I also don't think he was murdered, although I could see the suicide attempt actively not being stopped).

    Poll: Re: Great strokes. Forehand, ATP.

    Understandable! If just talking about the beauty of the shot, Moya, Berdych, and maybe Ferrero would be right up there for me.

    What, my boy Marat Safin doesn't even get an honorable mention? That down-the-line FH was always such a treat.

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

    I'd second going with Stosur for one whose second serve is more of a standout than her first serve (which is good but not among the best ever), although Serena's is probably still more effective.

    One time I was in a car with Simon Aspelin (doubles player) for 40 minutes right after he poured a full bottle of cologne onto himself, so I prefer my tennis players unscented.

    Poll: Re: Great strokes. FIRST SERVE, ATP.

    This is very difficult because it depends on what a "great" stroke is - is it effectiveness, aesthetics and form, speed (for serves), memorability.

    I went with a sentimental choice and picked...

    Poll: Re: Great strokes. FIRST SERVE, WTA

    Yeah, I would say Venus' best serves are the best serves ever, but, even at her prime, she also serves/d a good number of "not-the-greatest" serves in a match, which disqualifies her here.

    Glad you included Rafter. I would have forgotten about him, but I could immediately picture it in my head after reading his name.

    Although it hasn't been strikingly effective, we don't know that it definitely didn't work since we don't have a "control" no-action-taken group.
