At the end of the day, it all comes down to the action - and that action's being served up in Nürnberg.
From Angelique Kerber's crushing forehands...
... and the big follow-throughs on those forehands...
... to WTA rising star Elina Svitolina's big forehand, there's been a lot of power on display.
Eugenie Bouchard has been adding power to her already-well-rounded game during the last 12 months.
Some players bring more topspin to the table than others - Beatriz García Vidagany is one of those.
The young Spaniard is perhaps best known for her upset of Kim Clijsters a few years ago - on clay.
Kurumi Nara slid to her first WTA title in Rio this year, but fell second round in Nürnberg this week.
Kerber also has a big backhand - her across-the-body backhand chop is one of her trademarks...
As is her shot variety - the World No.9 brings out the slice whenever she needs it on the court.
Marina Erakovic is also a well-rounded player who isn't afraid of cracking backhands into the corners.
New Zealand's No.1 player also isn't afraid of coming into the net and showing off perfect volleys.
Same with Anastasia Rodionova, who doubles up as one of the best doubles players in the world.
The shot that starts it all is the serve, though, and the WTA stars are serving up a storm this week.
