No, that would be Martina Navratilova.
Runner-up in the greatest-ever category.
Runner-up to Ms. Stefanie Graf.

This is still sort of early in her career. She has so many more years left to change the fact that she's been runner-up. She's going to have many other chances to win Slams, so yeah, I don't think she'll be remembered as "the runner-up"

WEll I think she can break thru to another level ,she has come so close ,but if shes ends up being runnerup well i guess thats better than winning Sweet Fuck All ,like a lot of players , to make multiple GS finals etc takes a high level of talent and Lenas got that ,but she needs more stablitly to actualy win the big ones ,but shes got some years yet ,I think she can do it

2005 is already a more consistant year for her with a tier one semi ,final ,QF at rnd 16 at AO so its better.

That Beautiful head of hers needs a little work just to get the points at the big momenst and keep a more Regular serve ,but she will be remembered ,thast for sure !!

The greatest runner up in history? Not yet, and probably not ever.

sadly, ASV holds that title for me, even though i loved her so.

don't forget that dementieva is SOOO old and will never reach another final again :rolleyes:
give her a break, if she wins RG i hope you'll have the politeness to bumb this thread and joke about it.

You mean the greatest non-slam winner?
Lena has years ahead of her to win a major.
2004 was her best year ever. And she is not falling off this year.
In fact, she was very positive in her post-match interview.
She knows she's approaching her good form now.

Arantxa will be remembered as a champion not a runner up. She's a former #1 player and has 4 grand slam singles titles - would have been more had she not been unlucky enough to play in an era of three modern day greats - Navratilova, Graf & Seles.

I'd say Helena Sukova is the greatest runner up ever so far.

.

that's exactly why i see her as a runner up - she couldn't be the best with those girls around. she was just unfortunate.

I think Kim is having a big chance for this title. People will remember her as a number 1 who was in a lot of GS finals but haven't won any of them.

Serena!

She could be the MJF of her generation but on the other hand if she gets it all right she could be the Mary Pierce.

ASV would get the title but disqualified herself by grabbing a very respectable handful of GS to go with all the runner up medals.

She has surprised me many times getting to the finals of big tournaments...maybe she'll take the next step and give the tennis world an even bigger surprise.

No. I think Elena's better than that. :)

BTW, this poll reminds me of what Jerry Seinfeld said about people who come in second at sports. :lol:

Well I think she will break thru ,shes getting closer and closer and still has plenty of time..

But I think whatever happens ,she will be remembered as a beautiful ,charming ,sweet girl who tries her best and fights to the death, simply will not give up and posesses some of the most awesome groundstrokes seen in tennis and is one of the best returners out there..

So I think that she will look back on her career with pride ,and I really think there is more to come....

Shes reached big finals many times ,shes in the top 5,she enjoys her game and has acheived several firsts ,the First and still the only Russian to hold a olympic Medal ,the First to excede $5 million in prize money and outside Olga the first Russian to reach 2 GS finals....

So Lena ,be proud of yourself ,your attitude is superb and I always enjoy seeing you on court ,its never boring!!!

Kim Clijsters. 0-4 in Grand Slam women's singles finals (and runner-up to Katarina Srebotnik at junior Wimbledon 1998... does that make it 0-5 in women's singles + girls' singles?).
