Hingis/Davenport era? Sisters era? Henin-Hardene/Clijsters era? Russian girls era?

Im wondering which era you guys liked more when Hingis and Davenport ruled or maybe time when Williams sisters was on top? Or maybe now when Belgim duo score the top???

the Williams-era was cool, but I liked it more when it was a four or fivesome battling for the titles. Thus Hingis-Davenport-Williams2x and now hopefully Williams 2x and Belgians.

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

Absolutely, all amazing But also what SelesFan70 said re Steffi and Monica (although wasn't Arantxa in there as well?).

Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it.

None. I like the 1998-1999-2000 when literally anyone could win any title.

The Williamses, even though I like Venus, got old quickly, because their matches (all in 2002) sucked. JHH/Clijsters have played one good slam final, so I find them boring--and they are in the middle of all the injuries.

All the years when many players won. Not any years where there was one dominant player as that is soooooo

Myskina * Henin-Hardenne * Zvonerava

Davenport - Dementieva

Definitely Hingis-Davenport and Hingis-Venus ! These are the best matches I've ever seen !!! We could never know who would win... I miss those rivalries sooo much..

I like the hingis/davenport/venus era, and the venus/serena era, I am not too crazy about the justine/kim era, only because I wish kim would win some more matches against justine, but we might be looking at a serena/justine era pretty soon, with venus and kim close behind them.

If the Williams Sisters can remain healthy, I predict that the Justine/Kim era will be noted as just a "bubble" while the best players were out, then the Venus/Serena era will continue, with ocassional "upsets" mostly by Justine.

These three players are CLEARLY above the rest, with Kim and Jennifer next after a moderate gap. Jennifer matches up great with Serena, but has given up some of the mental toughness she had in 2001-2002.

Justine is a top quality player with ALL the shots one needs. She is clearly better on clay, with Serena close behind. She is getting better on hard courts, and WILL be a factor.

Kim is mostly a counter puncher vs the other top players, but could be great if she develops a more offensive game.

Graf/Seles and Hingis/davenport

"On the coin toss Martina said, "Do you want me to break your serve first or hold?" The umpire looked shocked. But we just both cracked up."
Lindsay Davenport, on a match she played with Martina Hingis.

Elena Dementieva
Justine Henin
Jennifer Capriati
Lindsay Davenport
