Yes, those are the same seven players from this thread. If you're feeling wild and crazy, back up your pick with some tournament results.

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

I say Schnyder with her various spins and her being a lefty = a good clay courter

My Forever Fav: Jelena Dokic

Serena Williams, Ana Ivanovic

If you're looking at results, then you have to go with Lindsay and Venus. Venus has an 80% winning percentage, and Lindsay has one at 77%. They both have multiple clay-court titles, Venus with a RG final and big titles at Rome and Charleston, and Lindsay a three-time AI champion, and many other clay titles. Both are very solid all-surface players.

Many would say Patty would be the "best", but she has a much lower winning %, only three clay titles, and has only made one QF at RG.

patty was only denied a grand slam final because of pierce's amazing new-found form.
she looked to be second only to justine this year, really. she could have battled it out with any other player for the title.

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.

I think Petrova out of that list.

Davenport and Sharapova don't favour clay as much, and there results show that they are better on other surfaces.

Venus, although she has won claycourt titles, has always had trouble at Roland Garros.

Hantuchova has had some poor results on clay this year (losing 1R at Berlin and Rome)

Schynder and Safina are good players on clay, but Petrova just tips it with her results.
