who's greater, LD or Kim?

I still think LD is better than Kim, because LD won 3 different slams.

Discuss.

Re: who's greater, LD or Kim?

Personally, it's very close. Both have just about 80% winning percentage. Kim has one more Grand Slam, but Lindsay has the Olympic Gold. Both had around a ten year stretch of consistently advancing deep into the draw at Majors. Kim's three YEC help her out, a lot. Lindsay has fourteen more overall titles than Kim, which helps her a lot. Lindsay really played peak-Hingis, peak-Venus, and peak-Serena throughout her career, and she had to beat almost all of them to win her titles, so I think her competition was consistently tougher. Kim's two best years were kind of lacking in the competition department. Clijsters leads the head-to-head by one match. Davenport finished #1 four times.

I pick Lindsay.

Let them eat cake.

VERY CLOSE, but I give Lindsay the slight advantage.

Re: who's greater, LD or Kim?

For me, they're even. They had such great games and were so close accomplishment wise it would be unfair to pick one over the other

Re: who's greater, LD or Kim?

Close, but 4 slams > 3. Suddenly it doesn't get any consideration?

Well, that's really not "the factor" when it comes to who is greater

I really thought it was Lino.
I'm not sure with this one, maybe I would give the advantage to Clijsters.

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Same here...

Anyway it's Davenport. Clijsters won her slams during generation suck and with Safina/Wozniacki being #1. With the only exception in 2005.
Davenport won when Seles, Hingis, Graff were active and when being in top 10 meant something.
Plus she won more tournaments I think?

Pretty much the truth.
