As Wimbledon is just about to start I began wondering who I would have most liked to have won there. Here are some of my faves I would have liked to have lifted the Venus Rosewater Dish. But the one I would love to have seen the most is Monica, the reason I started watching tennis a few years ago.

You may be just kidding but as a Brit I would dearly have loved Barker to win the big one.

I would love Sue to have won cause she is a great TV presenter too, but I thought some people maight have a go for me having included her. On second thoughts, not kidding, because she got as close to winning it as otheres!

Gabriela Sabatini.

The rest of them won enough slams to match their ability except Monica but she still won loads.

You didn't need to put 'just kidding' after Sue Barker, as she was by far my favourite of all the players you listed here. I liked Sabatini and Shriver a lot too, but couldn't stand the likes of Seles or Sanchez-Vicario.

Arantxa :worship: , just saw the 1995 final, that incredible eleventh game in the third set with thousands of DEUCES, simply amazing!
Also Mónica!

Why didn't you like Monica? Just really interested to know as most people now adore her - I know not everyone did way back when, but since 93 most professed to love her!

Monica, and then Jenn.

Definitely Gaby over Jen for me, cos it would take her out of the "One Slam Winner" Category and because she came so agonisingly close in 1991 and it would have changed her career and opened up the chance of her doing even more in her career..
Even though I would have loved Jen to win it, I think it would have been more important for Gaby to win it...both are my two tennis heros!

Monica first then Zina....sadly Serena lost a wimbledon final 13 years later by the same score :'(

Monica, for sure. too bad she could not complete the Career Slam. still, in my eyes, with or without Wimby she remains the fiercest competitor the game has ever seen.

Interestingly from the group Sabatini was the one who got closer to the title.. just two points away :sad:.. plus an tricky exchange near at the net in that 30-30 point :(

This question is so easy for me,my all-time favorite player after Serena and Venus, The Great Monica Seles,who I think would have won it at least 3 times by now if not for the attack,She was just to good not to have. :)
