Who is best player out of Ivanovic, Safina, Jankovic, Wozniacki

Of the 4 universally recognized mug #1s who goes down as the greatest player of the 4. I say Ivanovic due to her combination of a slam win and 3 slam finals.

Re: Who is best player out of Ivanovic, Safina, Jankovic, Wozniacki

Great thread!! This is why I love GM.

I was always kind of surprised by Safina and the Woz being no. 1, like it never seemed right. Ivanovic, I'm surprised she hasn't done more, she can have a really good game. Go with her, and not because of the Slam, but just I think has a more solid game than the others.

OTOH, Ivanovic would never have been no. 1 without Justine just quitting out of nowhere. At least the other mugs racked up the points without anyone ahead of them just walking away.

Still have to go with her, though.

Ivanovic is a big dissapointment. She lost herself completely mentally after her maiden slam win and #1 ranking, and lost all momentum and confidence of her career. She is trying to come back now but it is a long road back. Still she achieved more in 13 months than the others did their whole careers which makes it a no brainer for me.

Fail.

Ivanovic is in a league above those slamless number ones.

How is it fail. Even with a slam Ivanovic will still be remembered in the same category as those other three more than she will be in the league of even Mauresmo and Clijsters, probably the next 2 weakest #1s but light years superior players to this quartet. I do agree Ivanovic is the best of the 4, but the gap down to the other 3 is much smaller than the chasm up to Mauresmo and Clijsters, and many #1s up above them.

What about a poll of the worst one-slammers in the open era?

Hmmm that is a good one. O Neill would win by a landslide though so perhaps it is wise to elminate all 1 time Australian Open winners before 1980, and all 1 time slam winners at Roland Garros during the WTT boycott from 1976-1978, so the slightly less muggy winners atleast have a fighting chance in the poll. With everyone included there are alot of good options though, despite that O Neill would probably go unchallenged, except maybe by Barbara Jordan:

O Neill
Jordan
Melville
Durr
Myskina
Majoli
Barker
Ruzica
Jausovec
Na
Schiavone
Stosur
Ivanovic

All will go down in history as "weak" 1 slam winners. The only strong ones in the Open era are Martinez, Sabatini, and Novotna.

Re: Who is best player out of Ivanovic, Safina, Jankovic, Wozniacki

Caroline. I like her game. You think she is a retriever but when u really watch her game you can see how talented she really is by getting a lot of balls back.(LOL..SHE KNOWS HOW TO GET BALLS BACK BUT NEEDS TO MOVE FORWARD IN THE COURT MORE) If she works on her game and continues to develop she'll win a slam. Safina was always overrated to me she moves so slow. Ana the same way..never saw anything special in her game. Jelena is she would develop her serve and net game I can see her winning more titles.

1. CAROLINE,I CAN SEE HER GAME IMPROVING. I DONT THINK ANA AND THE REST CAN REALLY ADD ANYTHING TO BE BETTER. JUST MY GUT. TIME WILL TELL..

Ivanovic by a mile. She's been a colossal disappointment. When she was at the height of her powers I really thought she had a shot at the career grand slam.

Safina showcased the highest level of tennis out of the four during their respective peaks IMO, so I vote for her. Ivanovic's BH is too much of a poor shot for me to vote for her.

Ivanovic is clearly #1 of these 4. She has a slam and has been to the same # of finals as Safina - but has a W (over Safina).

Agreed re: Safina's dominance. She was by far the most dominant and spectacular to watch of the 3 (Safina, Wozniacki, Jankovic - slamless #1's) when they were at #1.
