Re: Real Poll: First Asian Woman To Win Grand Slam

Realistically, Ayumi Morita probably has the best chance, although I still believe in Ai.

Hantuchova/Sugiyama def. (1) Black/Huber 6-7(0) 6-3 7-6(10) saving SEVEN match points, down 2-5 in the third, and down 2-6 in the third set tiebreak in three hours

Ai Sugiyama. Jie Zheng. Zi Yan. Tamira Paszek.
Yaroslava Shvedova. Nuria&MariaJose. Yung-Jan Chan. Elena Vesnina. Flavia Pennetta.

Re: Real Poll: First Asian Woman To Win Grand Slam

I really do believe Mirza has the game to seriously contend at a slam. Someone with firepower like that cannot be ignored... especially if she starts truly getting fit and straightening out that serve. If she finds a hot patch of form I think she could go far in a slam. And it wont necessarily be in the next couple years, either.

Personally I dont think any of the players on that list are going to win a slam, but I voted Sania since I think shes got the best chance.

Re: Real Poll: First Asian Woman To Win Grand Slam

Neither of them. If there is ever an Asian player to win singles GS, she's to discovered yet.

Ana Ivanović.

She's young. She's got time on her side, and I think she's an interesting prospect - I think, anyways.

Re: Real Poll: First Asian Woman To Win Grand Slam

Morita has often some disappointing results.

I would bet on Albina Khabibulina

**** KRISTINA MLADENOVIC Future Star ****

Supporting Marion Bartoli - Aga Radwańska - Aravane Rezaï - Laura Robson - Caroline Garcia !!!
