Novotna is easily the best of those. Sharapova, lol, what a joke, she isnt even that good a grass courter, in 2004 she played only one good match in the final to win it. Davenport is good but her poor movement is a really bad factor against her on grass. She might beat Jana in head to head due to the matchup but vs the field she would do much worse. Hingis is a lightweight on grass, lucked out to win a fluke Wimbledon in a year of a super weak grass field, and Jana injured and choking in the final.

Novotna - she is the only true grass court player out of the 4 and her athletisism is far superior to the other 3 as well.

RIP Elena Baltacha, thank you for dedicating your life to a sport we all love. You'll be missed but never forgotten.

One of the best highlights reels I've seen on youtube is this 95 Wimbledon tie vs Graf - really great tennis http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iyV-scO-PcY

I still can't get over the fact that Hingis won Wimbledon. That year arguably was the weakest year in WTA's history.

Re: Peak on Grass: Sharapova VS Novotna VS Davenport VS Hingis?

davenport>novotna>sharapova>hingis. it's odd that Hingis won wimby, never won RG..even Sharapova won RG.

Always bet on black!
