Who is the best claycourter?

Dear TFers,

Who, in your opinion, is the best clay court player from this list?
4 of them are Roland Garros champion. But other than their RG crown, some of their achievements at clay are questionable.
4 of them are RG finalists. Some of their records at clay (other than RG) are really really impressive.
2 of them are RG semifinalists. They have some great records at clay.
So, who is the best?

Venus, THE QUEEN
Serena THE WARRIOR
Miss you Monica Wynne Angie Anna Chakvy Marion Li Na
Good luck: Svetlana Simona

Re: Who is the best claycourter?

Ivanovic on a good day would probably beat everyone else on that list. But I'll give an honourable mention to Kuznetsova.

Re: Who is the best claycourter?

I voted Svetlana because Ana's last clay final was RG '08, all her sporadic success since then has been on hard.

Svetlana obviously but Safina is pretty good too, except her brain.

Re: Who is the best claycourter?

I really think Schiavone moves and plays beautifully on the surface but that's just me

Really?
It's hard against her. She had A title and a final at RG.
And she had match points against Myskina and Justine in their route to their title.
Also, Justine said to her, that it was her time (to win RG) after Ju was leave.

Re: Who is the best claycourter?

Schiavone. The only player whom has/had a better clay game was Henin (atleast in this generation, Evert is obviously the best clay courter ever, probably man or woman)

Re: Who is the best claycourter?

Sveta.

I think Fran is a more natural claycourter and plays beautifully on clay but Svetlana has achieved more on the dirt.

JJ, Venus and Ana are close 3rd, 4ths and 5ths.
