Kim, Amelie, Elena

...the three best players currently without a major. Will they ever be able to win a major? Clearly Roland Garros wasn't good for any of them...however, they had decent draws (Clijsters drawing Davenport was more of a bad draw for Lindsay, considering the H2H), and yet they all lost early.

At Wimbledon and the US Open, you have to like Davenport, Sharapova, Serena, Venus more than those three players. I just wonder if they can ever put it together. Especially former "#1's" Amelie and Kim.

i think kim losing to lindsay is more justifiable considering lindsay is the number one player in the world.

Kim Clijsters always in my heart

Well I think Kim will be the first to win a slam of those three.

The bright side for Elena is that she has cut down the surprise first round eliminations this year. You have to be playing in the 2nd week to win. She has about a 3 year window to win one, I think. I also think that never having been a Number One, she's under a little less pressure than the other two.

I think Kim is just a matter of time.

I think Amelie is unlikely to win one, which is too bad she seems to be a great person and a great athlete, just too mentally fragile.

Kim owns Lindsay. I 'm sure she'll restore order when they meet again, even at Wimbledon! Amelie, I always said she would win a slam, but with each slam that passes I have greater doubts! Still think she can do deep into the second week this Wimbledon. Dementieva, who knows!

I see Elena doing it first, if any of them do. I'm not sure why. Maybe it's because she seems more pissed off after a choke than the other two.

Prob USO

Lindsay is a serious contender though (remember 2004) and Justine as well.

I think that Amelie is past any serious probability of winning a Slam..

I don't think Mauresmo will ever win one. I'm not sure about either Clijsters or Dementieva. If Lena D. can ever get a decent serve I think she will win a grand slam. Clijsters can win one as long as she does not play Justine in the final.

I actually think schynder is one of the most(if not the most) talented players not to win a major, i think she missed a big chance last week. I don't see dementieva winning a grandslam, amelie i really hope she can do it i think maybe wimbledon will be the one she will win if she does, kim im not so sure about either.

For them to win one it means: not having to face a Serena or Justine...and then of the three Kim is the strongest one mentally and consistent...and that is the more astonishing part: She´s won big titles before yet she still crumbles in the majors.

I don't see Elena D winning a slam. I don't think she has the mental fortitude to fix her serve. I think Amelie has about another year or so when she could still do it and I think it's possible, if unlikely. What I picture happening with Kim is that she'll continue at her current level, not quite winning slams for a couple of years, have some more problems with injuries and, in the twilight of her career, storm back and win a slam, perhaps even two before she retires.

Dementieva won't win Grand Slam. To win big event you have to beat top players and her H2H against top players is very negative.

Amelie beat only two players from top ten in Grand Slam ( Davenport and Jenny) so probably she won't win too

It's only a matter of time for Kim... (I'm guessing Aus Open 2006)

I think ElenaD might surprise everyone... once her serve is fixed and her confidence up, she's a threat.. she was fearless in reaching the USO finals in 2004

I think Amelie is the least likely to win a slam.. her 3rd Rd lost to Ivanovic adds more weight to my arguement... she'll just win the tier 1's and lose before the Finals in the slams...
