Only one has really had a chance.
Nicole Vaidisova - Roland Garros 2006 and Australian Open 2007.

Jankovic it's hard to call. I suppose with Safina in the final RG 08 would have to be the choice, but I still keep going back to that USO 06...

Re: What was your slamless favourite's best chance to win a slam?

Lindsay may have won slams but she had so many more chances aswell.



Marion's best chance was Wimbledon last year but she wasen't really ever going to beat Venus in that final.

Lena's best chances were obviously her 2 finals, both of which she started as favourite but didn't deliver on the day. French Open this year was definetely her other best chance.
