Lightbulb Ouch! Sony Ericsson WTA Tour Poll Slaps Venus In The Face!

Question:

Who will have the best run on grass this year?

Kim Clijsters
Amelie Mauresmo
Justine Henin-Hardenne
Svetlana Kuznetsova
Maria Sharapova
Other


You'd think after last year they would've learned their lesson

ah well. it's so ridiculous, i have to assume that it was a data entry clerk who knew nothing about tennis and therefore didn't look at the list of possible choices properly.

i think this is very unfair for venus what are the wta thinking, putting justine there and not venus when jsutine has never won and is not the defending champion! god that really is stupid by the wta and if venus sees it im sure shell be more determined to rectify it!

ONE OF THE BEST FIGHTERS IN THE GAME
2004 WIMBLEDON CHAMPION
2006 US OPEN CHAMPION
2008 AUSTRALIAN OPEN CHAMPION
2012 & 2014 FRENCH OPEN CHAMPION

Congrats Maria you proved so many haters and fans that gave up on you wrong enjoy all the success that comes to you as you deserve it!

Well technically Venus doesn't have a grass season, she plays just 1 tournament

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

I think if they were asking who was going to win Wimbledon - they'd have put Venus in the list. But the question was - who would have the best run on grass - implies playing more than one tournament. Nadia, Lindsay & Martina aren't in the list either - only players playing Eastbourne or Birmingham.

I think you are correct. The OP just misinterpreted the question.

I think they were talking about more than one tournament...for them to exclude the most decorated active Wimbledon Champion is NUTS! But who cares what Wtatour.com has to say...

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.

I do....especially in the draws & results section
