Elena without serve has no chance to win a slam ( pitty but true )

Agnieszka Radwanska top 3 player

Petrova because she is a great clay court player. Lena when she plays her best is better than Petrova but she so rarely plays her best.

Petra Kvitova

Re: Who has a better chance to win a grand slam? Elena Dementieva or Nadia Petrova?

Petrova is still a bit of a head case tho. especially against the mentally tough players like Justine and Serena. They are never out even if Petrova is up a break or even serveral breaks like 5-1 in the 3rd set she is never certain of victory.

You're kidding, right? Did you SEE the '04 RG final?

Petrova keeping her head for two weeks is likelier than Dementieva finding a serve.

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

I would pick Dementieva if she can keep her nerves.
