Who are the 'best' ten active players in the world (which excludes Jennifer and Monica but includes Serena since she is still ranked and coming back next month)

IMO:


Justine Henin-Hardenne
Serena Williams
Kim Clijsters
Amelie Mauresmo
Venus Williams
Svetlana Kuznetsova
Maria Sharapova
Martina Hingis
Nadia Petrova
Lindsay Davenport

Best 10 active players in the world?

Refer to the WTA Top 10 Players for the answer.

Ok so here's how a thread like this is going to go, and your answers too:

Williams fans:
Serena Williams
Venus Williams (these two are interchangeable)

followed by:
Lindsay Davenport
Kim Clijsters
Justine Henin-Hardenne
Amelie Mauresmo
Maria Sharapova
...
..
.


Justine Fans:
Justine Henin-Hardenne
Kim Clijsters
Maria Sharapova
Venus/Serena Williams
Amelie Mauresmo
....
...
..
.


You get my drift? It's pointless to start threads like these :o

No this tells us the top 10 ranked, not the best ten tennis players. If we go by this logic then Serena Williams certainly isnt much of a tennis player..im barring injury and system, talking about the best ten tennis players

well top 10 is top 10 and have a look at wtatour.com to see who is in the top 10.

1) Serena or Justine (never saw them play well together at their peak)

3) Venus Williams
4) Kim Clijsters

5) Maria S
6) Amelie Mauresmo
7) Nadia Petrova
8) Mary Pierce
9) Lindsay Davenport
10) Martina Hingis


The gaps mean that the players in the same groupe can be changed places. Still it's a very subjective rank cos I based it on the best performances of what I saw during all these years I follow tennis.

Unbiased.....

Serena Williams
Justine Henin-Hardenne
Venus Williams
Lindsay Davenport
Kim Clijsters
Maria Sharapova
Martina Hingis
Amelie Mauresmo
Mary Pierce
Svetlana Kuznetsova

everyone on this list has a slam to their credit and most have been #1....I actually could fight to put Venus ahead of Justine, but...I'd say their tied for #2

top10 active players?
well, you can take 8 of the RG QF + nadia petrova since she still was untouchable during the claycourt swing and you can patch in schiavone or schnyder too.
so that makes:
henin
kuznetsova
clijsters
vaidisova
anna lena groenfeld
safina
hingis
venus
petrova
schnyder

those are the 10 most recently succesful players on tour.
and it would be a pretty bad list, considering the YEC and AO champion is out, as is reigning WIM RU, USO and YEC RU and also one of only three women in history to win the american hardcourt tierI double.

i try not to look at who's ranked where as much as i priase god that i'm living in an era of so many great players.

:confused: that list is based on ? anywho. . .

look at the race and that tells you who has had the best year.

and for career results is pretty obvious who the top ten are:

Serena (favorable h2hs against all, except Venus and Maria)
Hingis (dominated by Williams in last ten h2hs)
Venus (dominates all on grass, except Serena)
Justine (losing h2hs to Williams sisters, except on clay)
Lindsay (losing h2hs to Belgians)
Mary (resurfaces with best tennis every five years)
Kim (losing h2h to the other Belgium in slam competition)
Amelie (losing h2h to Williams and Belgians in slam competition)
Kutzie(lucky first slam win, but first Russia to get back to F after Slam win)
Maria (arriviste, but stuck at SF or below in slam competition since big W win)

Henin
Petrova (despite the Roland disaster)
Svetlana
Maria
Hingis
Dementieva
Shiavone
Venus (because of limited schedule)
Groenefeld
Vaidisova

This thread is so stupid. it might as well just ask who are your favroute 10 players, because people are so closed minded that they wont tell you what they think are the top ten best active, but who they want to be in there......

take a look at these lists for example! They are a joke! Totally biased, as is every other list in this thread.

I don't understand how people can put Serena in this, because if she played right now she would get her ass handed to her. If you mean most successful players or something, sure... but you're talking about active players and how good they are right now?
