Question Who wants a slam the most?

Lindsay - she has been playing really well recently, and now believes in herself, but has been slamless for nearly 5 years.

Elena Dementieva - she's been to two finals already this year and yet she's slamless beaten in straight sets.

Mauresmo - she's only been to one final and now has the pressure of being number one in the world. She's reasonably old too.

Kim Clijsters - She's been close so many times and can win big tournements like the YEC but still doesn't have a slam.

----------

Right now, I think Lindsay but I'm pretty biased :$

Lindsay Davenport

Elena Bovina | Anastasia Myskina | Flavia Pennetta
Fernando Verdasco | Tommy Haas


Q. Give us an update on the kid.
A. Are you serious?

lindsay?

amelie, kim, and elena are all tied for me...
all soooo close. they want one soooo badly. kim's too great a player to not win a slam, and she's been so close so often. amelie IS the new gaby-- but with the #1 ranking. the only reason she is number one is because the points are divided sooo greatly. elena has some heartbreakers that she'd really like to get over.

Well Kim or Amelie right now cannot win matches when it really matters, so i don't know.

Lena D - I would love to see her win a slam, but she's gonna have to get lucky in her draw because if she gets a player who attacks her serve, she'll be gone. As for who wants one the most, I think they all want it badly

Umm, they all want a slam, who wants it the most, don't know I'm not psychic but whoever wins a slam first will be considered the one who wanted it more. Maybe not cause the one who really wanted it more might have wanted it too much thus causing them to lose.....I could go on but I am boring myself.

I agree about Amelie. Every time she has to play a match against a top 10 player in a Slam you almost automatically expect the other girl to win. I have my doubts whether she can overcome those problems,especially since as a result of her #1 ranking the pressure on her is now even bigger than it was before.

Kim is a different story. She's won two Masters titles,and has reached several Grand Slam finals already,beating very good players to get there. And although she didn't win any of those Slam finals,she came close on a couple of occasions. She may choke sometimes,especially when playing Justine Henin,but her problems in this regard are nowhere near as dramatic as Amelie's in my opinion. Kim WILL do it,she WILL win one eventually.

Every player obviously wants a slam but with over 1000+ in the rankings and four to be won every year - only 1-2% will actually only win one. Thats the long and short of it.

Venus wants it bad. She is too good a player to settle for just the four. Plus she still believes she has got it in her.
Lindsay just realised it is doable after all and will be gunning for more.
Kim and Amelie must be thinking, if myskina, maria and sveta can, so can they!
Elena beat better players than she lost to in both slam finals- if that doesn't encourage to go one better, nothing ever will.
Serena being serena just wants it all.
Jen-see kim and amelie.
The tour just got greedy!

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

I say Elena, when she pours her heart out there on the matches it shows how bad she wants it. Too bad she can never play like she wants in finals.
