Who's the best active tennis player on the WTA tour?

ACTIVE player.

Including doubles and mixed, but I mean NOW, not their whole career. As much as I love Venus, for example, no way is she the best player on the tour right now. Outside of what is now a very specialized surface, her results over the past three years have been ordinary.


Hmmmm ... 'ordinary' as is one-of-the-twenty-best-in-the-world-at-her-chosen-profession.


I'll skip the poll, and you can make up your own criteria. One caveat. Justine Henin isn't an active player.

Proud to be an American
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.

Ana Ivanovic leads the points race right now, so I have to go with her.

Including doubles and mixed...then, we are going into Stosur territory.

Let them eat cake.

Ana Ivanovic for the reasons darrin stated

I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.
