Lindsay. Although she has 1 less slam, she has an Olympic gold, way more weeks at #1 and more titles.

Re: Who is greater? Lindsay Davenport or Kim Clijsters?

The fact that Kim has 3 YEC hasn't been mentioned once in this thread. Is it really that irrelevant?

In my mind Kim. I didn´t watched Lindsay at her best, but Kim is quite something with her it looked so easy and I love her.

Lindsay... The poll result is just right. Actually Kimberly got way too many votes.

Re: Who is greater? Lindsay Davenport or Kim Clijsters?

I go with Kim Clijsters. She is one of my favorite players all time. Everything she was doing on the court looked so easy, she was a fantastic talent and I would say that she accomplished little compared to her talent even though she has a Slam more than Davenport.

There's a clear bias going on in this thread. Kim leads in the most relevant statistics (slam titles/finals and YEC). Only when these are tied (or close to) should side statistics like weeks at no.1, total titles, etc. come into play. You could argue the relevant stats are close to tied, but I don't think that's the case when Kim has 1 more slam title, 1 more slam final and 2 more YEC.

Kim Clijsters.


Weeks at #1 and overall titles? Davenport only leads in those because her career was way longer. Kim was IMO the more talented player.

Lindsay

No one gives a crap about Kim's vultured weak era slams, beating Wozniacki/Zvonareva doesn't make you hot

Exactly.

While Lindsay had to face peak Venus and other tough players, Kimberly had to face Woz and Zvonareva in slam finals. That pretty much explains why Kimberly has more slams than Lindsay.
