    Great strokes. BH volley. WTA

    The choices this time are not many, as few have really mastered this shot.
    BJK. Solid from this side too.
    Martina Navratilova. Dumb things to do in tennis: hit a passing shot to Martina’s BH side. She would put that c**p away in a hurry.
    Hana Mandlikova. Not even close to the magnificent stroke on her FH, but way better than most anybody else’s.
    Pam Shriver. Yes, she and Martina played with forehands OUT (in doubles, Martina the left handed playing the add court). So both BH volleys were inside. Pam’s shot was extremely respectable (Martina still covered 60% of the court)
    Gabriela Sabatini. Something about that woman and her left-leaning tendencies. Her lunging BH volley was usually for winners.
    Martina Hingis. Just noticed something. She is the sole 2 handed BH in this group. Odd. But her volley on this side was also very good.
    Jana Novotna. Because she was…. Yes, a Czech serve and volleyer.

    Honorary mention.
    Your choices are as good as mine. Maybe better because I really can’t think of anybody that excels when approaching the net.

    Not sure why but this is the first time where I can't conjure up a mental picture of anyone's shot. So I conjured up an image of Sabatini and voted for her.

    I almost did the same thing but I remember BJK's shot and voted for her.

    Voting Venus for this one. The WS backhand swinging volley changed the game, and Vee does it better than Serena

    I think this is actually all accurate, but I think in my head a swing volley is a different shot.

    Plus, I am biased AGAINST the swinging volley. I wrote my opinion of it. So...
