Martina Hingis or Lindsay Davenport. I can't choose so I'll refrain from voting. Nobody else on that list comes remotely close to what those two have achieved (Kim is awesome on carpet, but her lack of big titles on the surface hurt her when compared to Hingis/Lindsay).

If you're talking about a specialist, I'd vote for Maleeva. But if you're talking about in general, I'd go with Lindsay.

It is definitely Hingis or Davenport. In their last 33 Indoor tournaments, Davenport has a 96-17 (.850) record, while Hingis has a 94-19 (.832) record. Lindsay has won 15 of those tournaments, while Hingis has won 14. Hingis' Indoor record in her previous 35 tournaments is better than Davenport's record in her last 33 tournaments, though. Lindsay leads Martina in Indoor Head-to-Head six to five, but their last Indoor match was a retirement by Hingis. Both players have had at least one really stellar year under the roof. Martina's stellar year was in 2000, where she compiled a 23-1 (.985) record and lost to Davenport, only once. This record was in the midst of a ten tournament Finals streak in Indoor tournaments. Davenport's stellar year under the roof was in 2001/02, where she compiled a 22-0 (1.00) record. She won four consecutive Indoor tournaments before falling to Magdalena Maleeva in the Moscow Final. This streak is what decides my vote and that goes to Lindsay.
