Of course, if we look at the stats, it'd be that.
But, the third round loss of Serena at Wimbledon make me disagree with this ranking. Same with the first round loss of Justine at Wimby, though she was injured.
And it's quite clear that with her 7-6 6-1 loss against Schiavone, Serena wouldn't have gone far at RG (but this is just a supposition)
Mine would be :
, though I don't really like her. In each GS, she lost to the winner, and had less luck than Davenport in the draws (Justine in the quarters at FO). She always fight on every point (just watch the 2 setpoints she saved against Venus). She was a bit more impressive than :
, very close to Sharapova though, but chokes a bit too much for someone who is supposed to be the best. She reached the finals of AO and Wimbledon, but left both tournies with a bad impression.
: that first round loss at Wimby as a/the favourite was
. But it might be explained by her injury.
: outstanding Wimbledon, but in the other GSlams, she was really shaky.
