Myskina. Slam + More other titles + Better peak ranking> More years in Top 10 + Slightly better winning % and career earnings. I'm sure Dementieva would trade it all for that slam Myskina has.

well let's see: major, titles, head to head, career prize money (even though dementieva plays way more doubles than myskina), and highest ranking all go to myskina

dementieva is currently the better player, but she's hardly ever capable of winning tournaments, much less majors. she really has nothing on mysjina at this point except a silver medal in the olympics.

i never knew these two players had such abysmal winning percentages that's downright horrific!

Bottom line for the meantime:

Grandslam titles:

Myskina - 1

Dementieva - 0

But Lena will always be the better player to me. Up until she wins a grandslam though, Myskina's career will be ahead.

Maria Sharapova

It isn't so bad. They basically win 2/3 matches. I mean no one has suggested they should go to the hall of fame, but it's definitely respectable.

If current form continues til both turn 30, Dementieva will have had the better career. MJ Fernandez had a better career than Iva Majoli. That's looking like the most appropriate comparison at the moment...

Well hell, hasn't someone made it to the HOF with only one slam?

In my opinion, it wouldn't be unbelievable if Myskina might get in. Maria might too, if they both were to retire today. Maybe. lol

I'd have to say Myskina, that slam is a huge factor.

I mean, if the next five years go like the last two years have been going for the two players, I guess Elena may finish ahead, but for the moment, definitely Myskina has had the better career.

I don`t care about overall titles much.
But Nastya`s career is better. She has won a GRAND SLAM.
As soon as lena wins a slam, i will say: lena`s career is better than Nastya`s.
However,Nastya has been World No.2..that`s (much) higher than lena`s best ranking.
I hope it`s gonna change soon.....
But at the moment,Nastya`s career is better...

Simona Halep
Juan Martin Del Potro

Nastya, has a Slam, more titles, leads the head-to-head, basically what everyone else has said, but with Nasty contemplating retirement and Elena possibly coming into her best form, it could definitely change...

Ivanovic * Kvitova * Serena
