Top 10 grass courters of the Serena generation

Who would you rate as the top 10 grass courters of the Serena era. Mine would be:

1a- Venus
1b- Serena
3- Davenport
4- Mauresmo
5- Sharapova
6- Henin
7- Hingis
8- Kvitova (if she has another decent Wimbledon I will bump her to #6 or higher)
9. Capriati
10. Bartoli

Re: Top 10 grass courters of the Serena generation

Kvitova is a much better natural grass courter than both Henin and Wingis. On your list, Kvitova should be #6, Wingis #7 and Henin #8

Kvitova has had two decent Wimbledons. Let's not get over-excited here.

Re: Top 10 grass courters of the Serena generation

I feel like Dementieva's 2 semis out does Bartoli's fluke Wimbledon. Her entire run there was fluke, not just that semi-final win.

Kvitova has a wimbledon title under her belt! I don't know why someone with no Wimbledon title is ranked above someone WITH wimbledon title. It's not about getting carried away and proclaiming her grass GOAT or something, it's about being non-biased...Notice how I don't put her above Amelie and Shrieker, which are IMO both worse on grass than PK, but as of right now they achieved more...

this list looks good to me
though I would consider switching Sharapova to #4 and putting Mauresmo at #5

Re: Top 10 grass courters of the Serena generation

Dementieva Wimby resume = 2 SF, 1 Qf, and 3 4r finishes
Bartoli Wimbledon resume = 1 Final, 1 QF, 1 4R finishes
At best they are even, but Bartoli is not greater.
