Who is Lindsay's greatest ever rival?

Who of these girls will Lindsay look back on as being her most epic rivalry?

Venus beat her in three finals. She would have three other slams had Venus not been on the other side of the net. Venus is 3-0 against Linds in GS finals.

Hingis is more like her best friend rather than her (true) rival.
So I pick Venus as her rival, especially at Slams

Venus, THE QUEEN
Serena THE WARRIOR
Miss you Monica Wynne Angie Anna Chakvy Marion Li Na
Good luck: Svetlana Simona

I think both players are rivals to Linds, but I've always thought her matches with Venus have been more exciting.

Although, I have to admit, Venus has been so huge on the tour that whenever anybody beats her it's pretty exciting, mostly because of the hype that everybody puts on the WS.

Hingis. Venus and Davenport's rivalry has always been very one-sided. First Davenport won like 8 of the first 9 or 10, then Venus won a whole bunch, and then Davenport won a few,and then Venus won Wimbledon, their one really good Grand slam final match. I mean, Hingis and Davenport didn't play great slam finals either, but they've had many memorable finals match-ups and they were number 1 and 2 for the longest time. I'd say Hingis-Davy.

hunger, desire, fire..........
stength, power, precision.........
talent, court sense, smartness........
no i am not talking about a racket or a squirrel, i am talking about the former and future number 1..............
martina hingis!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good Luck Justine Henin Hardenne, Venus Williams, Maria Sharapova, Mary Pierce, and any of my other favorites that I might have forgotten about at this moment.

It is CLEARLY a three way rivalry. This question cannot be answered.

Venus. She always played spoiler in the slam finals, while Linds always beat Martina.

Personally, i think Lindsay has a great rivalry with both players, its too hard to choose between them.
