Question:

Who will have the best run on grass this year?

Kim Clijsters
Amelie Mauresmo
Justine Henin-Hardenne
Svetlana Kuznetsova
Maria Sharapova
Other

You'd think after last year they would've learned their lesson :lol: ;)

ah well. it's so ridiculous, i have to assume that it was a data entry clerk who knew nothing about tennis and therefore didn't look at the list of possible choices properly. :lol:

i think this is very unfair for venus what are the wta thinking, putting justine there and not venus when jsutine has never won and is not the defending champion! god that really is stupid by the wta and if venus sees it im sure shell be more determined to rectify it!

Well technically Venus doesn't have a grass season, she plays just 1 tournament ;)

Well technically Venus doesn't have a grass season, she plays just 1 tournament ;)i'ts a run, it just happens to be a sprint.

anyway. here's to Venus lifting the trophy that bears her names--no matter what the bookies, tennis officiado, or general public happen to think!

I think if they were asking who was going to win Wimbledon - they'd have put Venus in the list. But the question was - who would have the best run on grass - implies playing more than one tournament. Nadia, Lindsay & Martina aren't in the list either - only players playing Eastbourne or Birmingham.

I think you are correct. The OP just misinterpreted the question.:D

I think they were talking about more than one tournament...for them to exclude the most decorated active Wimbledon Champion is NUTS! But who cares what Wtatour.com has to say...

I think that the poll is just right..."SONY"Wta knows that Venus is gonna win Wimbledon again, and if they put her there, they would know that it would be a landslide poll...hehe...so i guess..the poll is...who would have the 2nd best...
And Venus only play one tournament...

Well, I know if Venus were in the poll, we'd definitely be hearing a line we've all heard 1,000 times.

"Venus is only at 30% today." :tape:

They are pretty much often putting people from the top 10.

That's what I was thinking.. so it's not really a slap in the face. I mean if it had said Wimbledon than it most definitely would have been - but, alas, it did not.
