Tennisopolis : Tennis Social Network

As I sit and watch tennis on occasion, the commentators will usually get into some sort of a lull, and then out of nowhere start discussing body parts of certain players (ie., Nadal's knees) and then begin to deliberate about who's body is the perfect prototypical tennis player. So, the question to you, fellow "Opolisites" is, if you were to create the perfect player, whose body parts would you use and why?

Can we take strokes or do they have to be body parts?
I would say either.  I mean it would probably be a little weird for one of us dudes to wax nostalgic on one of the Men Pro Player's body parts.  But either way is fine. 
I figure you can't beat Safin's physique for tennis.  Perfect athleticism and size.  I just don't want anything above the neck!
I would start with Sampras Serve.  Rafa's Forehand.  Djoko's or Murray's backhand.  Agassi's return of serve.  McEnroe's volleys.  Gilbert's brain.  Rafa's desire.  Fed's composure in tight moments (in his prime).  It is a start......

We going strokes?

Then I think you got it pretty good, but i wouldnt want Nadal's forehand (if I could have anyone's that is.)  RAfa just doesnt have the line drive put away that DP or Sod have.... But I'd take Roger's FH actually.  So versatile and dependable.  

I hope I'm not the token guy to mix women into a ATP discussion, but siiiince it wasn't outright mentioned not to have them, I'd tie in Rafa's desire and fed's composure with Serena's fight and ability to come out and kill even when she's injured and out of form. I'd also add James Blake's speed.
Good points all.  Not opposed to adding the women into the mix.  Steffi has the wheels.  Any other suggestions?
