active players (amelie she has the best game for grass even ahead of venus and serena but her head is another matter altogether)

If you're not paying for something, then you're the product.

Lindsay.

Don't even say Maria, she's horrendous on grass.

Sharapova. She won in 2004 and made the semifinals in 05 and 06 I think she is, But I also like Davenport.

Venus and Serena

Re: Who's the third best grass court player of this decade???

There was a thread on "why Maria Sharapova is good on grass, it makes no sense". And I argued that it did in fact make no sense. Against a grasscourter, she would lose. Maria needs time to set up her strokes, similar to Ana. As well, she is not good with lower, flat balls. Pure talent alone wills her to victories.

Mauresmo has a title and a few SF. Lindsay has 2 finals, a few SF and some QF. I think I would give it to Lindsay.

But she has won another 2 grass titles in Birmingham.

She was good at the early years but she seems playing worse and in fact this year she has the worst results on grass only won 1 match.

I know, she's not THAT bad. But her loss this year definitely doesn't make her greater than Lindsay.

Re: Who's the third best grass court player of this decade???

Davenport and Mauresmo.

Quote:
19. In the period from January to April 2006 Dr. Skalny sent very detailed messages to Ms Sharapova [...]: “Mildronate 1-2 X 10, repeat in 2 wks (before training or competition)”; “1 hr before competition, 2 pills of Mildronate”; “During games of special importance, you can increase your Mildronate dose to 3-4 pills (1 hr before the match). However, it is necessary to consult me on all these matters (please call)”; “30 minutes prior to a training session: Mildronat – 1 Capsule. 30-45 minutes prior to a tournament Mildronat 2 capsules”.

Re: Who's the third best grass court player of this decade???

Now that I think of it, if we consider Lindsay greater than Amelie, then we must consider Justine Henin.

Henin has 2 Finals, like Lindsay, and multiple SFs. Add in all the Eastbournes.
