This poll is custom built for Jelena.

Really? I put my vote in for Capriati. Since Roland Garros, she's just been all over the place.

it's difficult to say in a fair way. jelena has obviously burntout at the end of this season. while kim struggled with form for at least the first half of the season due to injury and henin has been having some bad results as well as having a broken finger.

i'd say henin.

Go the aussies! stosur!!!
and good luck russians: dementieva, safina, kirilenko, sharapova, kuznetsova, bovina, zvonareva, dushevina.

also good luck to: azarenka, lucic, sprem, vakulenko, vaidisova, safarova, ivanovic, groenefeld, mirza, krajicek, kvitkova, larcher de brito, lisicki.

Jennifer has only lose twice before the quarterfinal of an event. All her other results are great. Jelena OTOH results are less impressive and speratic(sp?). She can really well sometimes and other times it just doesn't come together. She has 13 1st/2nd/3rd losses.

but she plays more often so there is more risk of losing earlier in some tournies due to fatigue or loss of form for playing too much.

And who is making her play that much? She is not consistant.

Jen has had QF's since Roland Garros, except the last two weeks [which, by the way are her only non-QF showings along with Sydney] but she just lost some odd matches.

Dokic def. 26 62 64; in a weird match, where no one really held serve.

Sugiyama def. 63 63; what happened exactly?

Mauresmo def. 64 61; great first; but where's the Jen fight that we saw in 2001?

Mauresmo def. 46 76 63; a battle. The only battle Jen had this summer where she won

well then, Jarrett, we can't compare the two players in a fair way then so how can you say justine is more consistent?

Consistant to me is getting far in every tournament a player plays.

Justine only have 6 1st/2nd/3rd round losses. Yes she played less, but I still think she is more consistant then Jelena.

Actually Daniela, should have her own voting option, she is not on par with Lindsay, the Williams, Monica or Ameile.

To me Henin's a clay/grass court player. She will get far in those events; but hardcourt/indoors she will be inconsistent.

IMO, Jelena: regardless of the surface, you never know who will show up. Example: US Open against Bovina. Bovina played well; but where was Dokic? She didn't put up much of a fight.

LOL@people who say someone else than Dokic!
Oh yea, anyone can lose to Rubin 6-0 6-2, Bovina, Myskina, Shaughnessy, Coetzer, Panova and Stevenson in just 8 weeks, and lose like a million times to Anne Kremer before that, right?

A little iffy but still okay.
