2004: Who did you think would win a tour singles title but didn't?

I would have said that:

Nadia Petrova would have come away with a title this year but didn't manage too. Her best result was a final appearance at Gold Coast - it is funny as she was ranked #6 in the world this year at one time without winning a title.

Jennifer Capriati didn't win a singles title this year either which surprised me - she had a championship point in Berlin but lost that to Mauresmo.

Karolina Sprem didn't a WTA title this year either - i expected her to win at least a Tier IV. Her run at Wimbledon keeps her high in the rankings to get seeded at medium events though.

Was hoping that Silvia Farina Elia, Conchita Martinez and Maggie Maleeva would win a title in their sunset years too.

I expected k-lina to win a smaller one too...the only problem is she didnt play any after the aussie open...im pretty sure she only played one or two at the beginnning...after that it was tier 1, 2 and gs

NOT putting anyone in here cause they lose....im cursing them.....in that case GO JUSTINE and SHARAPOVA!!
But if i were to wish luck to someone: i would like to see k-lina not sucking...and i would also wish luck to davenport...bartoli..ivanovic...hantuchova...demen tieva...kirilenko.......dulko...gullickson....pier ce...spears..mirza..Irvin...Peng...

yeah, k-lina only played tier i and iis after AO (and she got close to winning one of the tournaments before AO)

i hope she plays a couple of smaller events so that she can win a title

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

I was hoping Silvia Farina Elia would make a run at Strasbourg, where she had won the last couple of years...Specially after losing ANOTHER final in Canberra.

Kim Clijsters. Did she win one this year? I may be wrong.

Jennifer should have won something.
