Players who have won against all of the Big 4 (Dani needs to solidify her spot)

...and by Big 4, I'm talking about the Big 4 of the past decade, Serena, Justine, Venus and Kim.

Maria
Svetlana
Dinara
Elena Dementieva
Nadia Petrova
Marion Bartoli
Daniela Hantuchova


Notable players who are were close to achieving it:

JJ (now that Justine is gone, she will never achieve that feat )
Na (same as JJ, but never had the chance to face Juju in her career )
Bepa (yup, Justine also denied her that feat)
Daniela (only Kim stands in her way so she can still make it)
Jelena Dokic (needs a win against Serena)

Big 4's notable bitches:

Caroline Wozniacki - she ended as No.1 for two seasons but has yet to score a single win against any of them
Ana Ivanovic - scored only once against Venus at AO, but that's it
Agnieszka Radwanska - same as Ana, scored a fluke win against Venus

I no longer had to include Martina, Lindsay and Amelie.

Daniela finally scored one against Venus this year at Eastbourne. Half of TF had a cocktail party right after.

Stosur has Serena & Justine.

Not Kim (I think)
Venus Its hard for Sammy to beat her when she is always injured now.

MANDY MINELLA. PRISCILLA HON

CASEY DELLACQUA. JARMILA WOLFE. SAMANTHA STOSUR
QIANG WANG. SHILIN XU. AYUMI MORITA. NAO HIBINO
LESIA TSURENKO. ALIZÉ LIM. NAOMI OSAKA. JULIA GÖRGES.
OLIVIA TJANDRAMULIA. NAIKTHA BAINS. KIMBERLY BIRRELL.
KAROLINA PLISKOVA. KIMIKO DATE-KRUMM. DESTANEE AIAVA
Kəv. is online now

I would have included Stosur in the Notable list but she has both Kim and Venus against her.

Probably more so the fact that Venus is the worst possible match up type for Stosur...

C'mon Dani Anotox, if she plays like she did at RG against against the best player in the world Karolina she can definitely make the list

Shaughnessy has done it too. And Pierce. And Seles obviously.

Patty was close. But 0-11 against Venus. If only she had won that match in Stanford.

Myskina never beat Serena. Rubin never beat Kim. Capriati never beat Venus.

ANGELIQUE KERBER 63 75 DOMINIKA CIBULKOVA 60 60
LOUISA CHIRICO 60 60 IRINA-CAMELIA BEGU 63 62 KARIN KNAPP 63 67 60

Why on earth is Madusah considered time and time again one of the "big 4"? I agree with Jameka, Ebony and Handnin but why Madusah?

She may be the weakest link among the four but lets be honest, she had outstanding record against pretenders... plus, she is the Tier II queen.

also how about she is the 4th best player of that generation of players that came through, no matter how much it kills sharapova fans to admit kim is better than maria.
