Best player without a slam?

A similar thread has been started... and for 05 it was pretty obvious... it was Kim, then Amelie... and now...
who do you think is the best player overall not to win a slam?
(not that you necessarily think she will win another)

Patty of course. She's the most talented player without a GS title.

Elena Dementieva's the only one who's reached a slam final before (twice even!) so she gets my vote

Lena no question none of the other have been in a slam final that counts for the most, she's competed at the YEC every year this millenium which no one has done beaten everyone there is to beat (except Serena) and has been in the top ten for the last 3 or 4 years straight

tierI titles and finals, YEC appearances, overall succeful in grandslams, wins over evryone and two slam finals.
is there even doubt?

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.

Dementieva - not sure if she will ever win a slam but she certainly has the talent. 2nd IMO is Nadia Petrova in the form she was in at the start of the year, not in her current slump-form.

If you’re talking selection based solely on pure natural tennis ability then it has to be Patty.

Of the others. Unless Jelena Jankovic can get it into her head that you play the best of three, not two sets in tennis. Then she be the habitual “quarter-semi-finalist”. And if somebody can stop Ana Ivanovic munching her way through “Charlie’s chocolate factory”, then she’s in with a shout. As for Nicole Vaidisova, don’t go there.
