What chance do you give each? I give Martina the best chance, then Lindsay, then Mary, then Jennifer.

What about Mauresmo? I haven't lost all my hopes on seeing her coming back.

But she's the only ones who's offically retired except for Martina, who has hinted at a comeback.

Mary actually said she would come back this year, so she's the most likely in my mind.

Daniela Hantuchova.

Casey Dellacqua, Jelena Jankovic, Anna-Lena Groenefeld,
Jelena Dokic, Mirjana Lucic, Sara Tomic, Sloane Stephens
Melanie Oudin, Zarina Diyas, Kaia Kanepi, Alison Riske

Jennifer is not coming back unfortunately from what I have read the surgery she underwent did not repair the injury enough for her to make a successful comeback. If not for that and her age I think she would have returned to the tour a while ago. Lindsay Davenport can come back successfully imo but so far she has not expressed interest in doing so. The longer she spends away from the tour the less likely the chances of a return. Martina has expressed interest in a return but we will see what comes of it. Mary is not coming back imo. I haven't read her expressing any interest in returning and the age factor makes it less likely. Best chances of a return are with lindsay and Marttina. Mary and Jennifer are really unlikely to return.

Sadly I agree about Mary and Jennifer. I just can't see either coming back.

Lindsay I am 50/50. I wouldn't be surprised either way.

I definitely think Martina will come back. She isn't even 30 yet, and she craves the FO SOOOO badly.

But then again, all of these women are younger than Kimiki Date Krumm, and look at how well she's doing (with the exception of that terrible loss to Shvedova).

Hope None they've had their time in the sun, its time for the current younger generation to get their act together and challenge the williams and belgians and i hope Maria S can get her sh!t together to challenge all of them again also.

Maria Sharapova Steffi Graf
Kim Clijsters Petra Kvitova

Well you know, even though I hated her when she was playing, I would love to see Capriati wiping her *ss with the current pathetic bunch of pretenders.
Martina should come back, this is the perfect time for intelligent tennis to come back considering the lack of variety and mobility in the game.

I think it'd be foolish and do more damage to their legacy than good.

With the exception of Mary, if for no other reason than expectation would be lower for her and she would sneak up on people.

JA ME KA IS THE GOAT!!!

I think Martina and Lindsay are done with tennis, I mean they did come back and they didn't experience huge success so I think they kinda killed their desires.

Jennifer? No.

Mary said she was coming back this year

Mary will make some slam finals this year - just look at her cycle 1995 AO, 2000 FO, 2005 USO and FO finals, 2010 loses FO Final to S. Williams
