The Crown of the best currently active player not to win a Slam..

.. was very much owned by Elena D. at the beginning of the year, after Kim and Amelie checked out.. Now, I am not so sure. Nadya has won a lot of huge titles recently, clearly underlining her elite status ( name me another player to win 6 Tier I, Tier II titles in almost an year and not to be an elite ).. So, Dementieva or Petrova?

Petrova.

A much more complete game than Dementieva's, IMO.

My Dementieva.
I hope she'll win one next year.

Not so sure. Lack of footspeed and defensive skills. The forehand is a bit too silky.. Exactly the items Dementieva lives on.

Dementieva because she's been contending for them longer.

Dementieva, but I think Nadia is VERY close behind
