Players Who Have Never Won A Major, But Might

What are your thoughts on players currently in the Top 100 who have never won a major, but who have the potential to do so? I am not talking about about certainties here, just players with a reasonable shot at winning a major during their career.
I think the list is fairly short:
Ivanovic
Jankovic
Vaidisova
Golovin
Szavay
Azarenka
Krajicek (I expect a fair amount of disagreement on that one)
Paszek
Wozniacki

And that's it.
Thoughts?

Re: Players Who Have Never Won A Major, But Might

Nice you left out Shahar and Radwanska. Anyway from that list I can see only Ana, Jelena, Vaidisova, Azarenka and Paszek that might win a slam.
Others will have some good years at the top and will reach semies and maybe finals but as you know there are 4 slams a year and all the players want them only the best of the best can get them.

SHAHAR PEER


SERENA WILLIAMS~ANA IVANOVIC~NICOLE VAIDISOVA

TAMIRA PASZEK~AGNES SZAVAY~ALIZE CORNET


NOVAK DJOKOVIC

Chakvetadze, Dementieva, Petrova. Yes, I'm serious about Nadia. I believe she can win RG.
Oh, and even Hantuchova has a shot.

Re: Players Who Have Never Won A Major, But Might

I think Dani, Elena have shots. When on there game they are hard to beat, but they are not on to often and almost never at a major.

Ivanoic-yea
Jankovic-yeah
Vaisova-maybe but don't think so
Golovin, yes if she can stay healthy, but not likely

As far as the up and coming girls, way to early to tell.

Hell a lot of people thought Henin would never even make a GS final before 01 and now she has Seven. So we don't really know.

MARIA SHARAPOVA-RUS
Agnieszka Radwanska-POL
Li Na-CHN
JELENA JANKOVIC-SRB
HANTUCHOVA-SVK

"Congratulations Maria on winning the Career Grand Slam!!! "

Re: Players Who Have Never Won A Major, But Might

Hantuchova...... if she ever gets her mentality down.....(heck Mauresmo's nerves held for 2 events... why not Dani...) anyways the way she was destroying Ivanovic..granted Ivanovic wasnt playing great tennis... Dani was playing beautifully though... so shes got a shot....

Re: Players Who Have Never Won A Major, But Might

here are my picks

Ivanovic almost certain she'll win one
Vaidisova same with Vaida
Szavay pretty sure with Agnes, her game and tactics are impressive considering her inexperience

Azarenka not so sure, needs to think more but definitely got game
Paszek needs to improve her serve and get a bit fitter
Cibulkova only seen her play once but her results are impressive
Rezai needs to get fitter but shes improving a lot year on year

I think these 3 have the talent to win a slam but not the mentality, all 3 are nutcases in pressure moments so I dont see any of them winning a slam which IMO is a shame

Hantuchova
Dementieva
Schnyder

Re: Players Who Have Never Won A Major, But Might

I never thought Schnyder or Hantuchova would win a slam, still don't. I never viewed Petrova as a potential slam champ either aside from a brief period in the spring of 2006. Dementieva made slam finals with a semi and some quarters after those finals, so until her blowout to Jankovic at USO I thought she still had her chance to be one. Not anymore, but she'd rather win a gold medal anyway. I'd be happy with that.

Ivanovic will obviously get a slam. If Jankovic can avoid Justine I think she can get one. Umm. I think Paszek can win a slam one day, not for awhile, but one day. She needs to improve a lot of things but she's still so young. If they can get their heads together, I wouldn't be surprised if Azarenka and Vaidisova won championships.

I'll sound crazy but I really do think if she could keep her head straight Safarova could be a slam winner, but alas.

I think that's it. At least about players I know. Wozniacki, Cirstea, all them bitches I think are talented but I haven't quite seem another level by them yet. But it's possible.

For me only Ivanovic, Jankovic and my deep instilled faith in Mirza,
but that's it.
