Who are you surprised did not win a title in '06?

I would say that I assumed Schnyder would win some Tier II or III at some point along the line. When the year started I was also pretty sure that Schiavone would get her first title this year, but she did not. Who else did you assume would win a title in 2006 but did not?

Safina, considering she won 3 last year. I suppose being at a higher level, less chance of raking up the titles. Should've won the ordina Open though

I expected Myskina winning at least Stockholm

Florencia Molinero


Madison Keys <> Petra Kvitova <> Simona Halep

Maria Sharapova <> BFCD <> Laura Robson <> Sloane Stephens

I'm really suprised no one said JELENA JANKOVIĆ. She had smashing second part of this year, got to US Open semis, one Tier I final, loads of semis... And she is 12. in the world...

Davenport! Before the year I thought she would win plenty, including a GS.

That's not true. This was her most consistent year in the Slams since 2002!

Re: Who are you surprised did not win a title in '06?

This also helps us revist the best player to have never won a title question. Is it still widely agreed that it is Schiavone? Or would you say Golovin? Or someone else?
