Which will win a major?

Which has the best chance of winning a major title?

These are all players outside the top 5 that have been "slam contenders" for a year. Best result comes from Marion at 2007 Wimbledon, other notable ones include Anna C. a set away from the US Open final, Nicole 2 points away from the French Open final, and Daniela 6-0, 2-0 in the Australian Open semifinal.

Re: Which will win a major?

God help the WTA if any of these win a slam. They need to improve (lots) before they do.

Re: Which will win a major?

Obviously for the two 19 years old: Vaidisova and Radwanska a chance to win a major is still ahead. As far as Jill Craybas concerned: hopefully it is never too late to have a big breakthrough .

Re: Which will win a major?

I wish Nicole had the mental breakthrough Dinara had.

What's her next tournament? Haven't seen her in a while!

She has to realize, hey I AM GOOD. There is no reason why she couldn't have had the results Safina has had this year.

Re: Which will win a major?

I dont think any of these players will win a major. Maybe Nicole if she can get back on track and really work hard and get some luck but even then its a real stretch.
