Players never to win a singles WTA Title

There are many great players out there in the Top100 that have never won a singles WTA Titles.

Nadia Petrova - at six in the world - this is wrong, but she is young and probably like ElenaD she will win loads at once.

Lina Krasnoroutskaya - another russian typed for greatness but not shown full potential - but has beaten Kim Clijsters.

Karolina Sprem - done well so far in career, reached finals including Strasbourg and Vienna 03 but not picked up that trophy - sure her time will come but best for her to play the Tier Vs and IVs for her maiden title.

Els Callens - 33 - has won lots of doubles titles but never a singles, does anyone think its possible at her age and does anyone know when she will retire in tennis?

Maria Vento-Kabchi - comes and goes, succsessful last year reemerging into the Top50 but no singles titles yet and at 29 is there a chance?

Shinobu Asagoe - got to finals (Hobart 04, Birmingham 03) but never got to pick up the trophy - at 27 not too late but will she?

Emannuelle Gagliardi - not a singles title for the Swiss miss.

Marion Bartoli - seeded to get into the finals loads this year but always falls early in the first round.

Laura Granville - Wimbledon 4R once, and a College champ but no real progress on the tour.

Francessca Schiavone - she cret into the Top20 earlier this year if anyone noticed but hasn't won a title, she did get to USopen QF03 and Roland Garros QF01.

Tatiana Golovin - well....by her recent run of success she could be the new Martina Hingis!

OTHERS
Alina Jidkova
Dally Randrianteffy
Anca Barna
Lindsay Lee-Waters
Petra Mandula
Saori Obata
Ludmila Cervanova
Akiko Morigami
Jelena Kostanic
Jie Cheng
Flavia Penneta
Klara Koukalova
Aniko Kapros
Claudine Schaul

So who does everyone think out of these will win at least one title and who won't?

K-lina should get a title some time this year.
I also expect Jelena to pick up something like Sopot or one of the Asian tournaments at the end of the year.


ugh, why do they all suck????????

If I was a betting man Id say within a two year span (if all stay healthy) then LinaK, Petrova, K-lina, and Tatiana Golovin will all win one title. Guarenteed!

Im surprised FranSchi (Francessca Schiavone) hasnt one a title yet, thats a little surprising to me.

Hope she will comeback sometimes this year and do well... I don't think she will play a WTA tournament except maybe Asian tournaments in October


Inspiration is for amateurs
