Out of these players, I would pick Kirilenko. When she first burst onto the scene in 2004/2005, I expected her to accomplish much more than she has. She's still young (20 yrs.) and is currently experiencing a "return to form," so perhaps she will be a late bloomer.

I voted Safina, it took her a while to take the tour seriously.

Definitely Dani and Patty. For me though, Patty runs ahead of Dani just by a nose.

but still good for her to finish her uni degree :p

I wanted to vote Hantuchova but voted Schnyder insead since she's been on the tour a bit longer than Daniela.

Schnyder, simply because she is by far and away the most talented on the list, but her results don't match up.

Razzano & Schnyder.

Razzano's whole carrer a mix with amazing wins on the one hand and :tape: :help: - losses on the other side :unsure::sad:

Dexter
Aug 17th, 2007, 10:35 AM
Hantuchova.

NeeemZ
Aug 17th, 2007, 10:39 AM
I think Razzano. She's playing good now but she really had the chance to blossom in the early stages of her career. She's also quite inconsistant. She's beaten Peer and Mirza in straight sets in the past two weeks but only a month back she lost to Errani 62 60.

Now that I write this, I change my mind to Schnyder. I think she had the potential to win a Grand Slam back in her peak.

Vaidisova is only 18 and has already been in 2 slam SF's and 2 slam QF's. How is she wasted talent? :o

Golovin. But hopefully she'll stop wasting it now. :)

Well she's still young :) I'm sure she has a lot of things to say... ;)

Na (because of the years off, injurys...), Daniela and Patty, yep

Li Na should have won more singles titles, only one Tier III does not reflect her ability, IMO. She could have won Estoril against Zheng that year, but a dodgy retirement and jetting off to the next tournament straight away :help:

Razzano also, you can see she has talent when she upsets the top players, but she doesn't seem to be able to hold it together (as of yet... things could be changing now? :shrug: )

Schnyder and Hantuchova, it's pretty clear. Both have massive talent but head is not their strong weapon.

Aug 17th, 2007, 12:52 PM
Oh all of the above - surely they should all have been #1 by now. :angel:

Hmm, my immediate reaction before seeing the names was Dani but on thinking about it I'd have to go with Patty for a couple of reasons. Firstly draws, Hantuchova has had horrendous draws over the years at Slam events and usually bows out to top players (and doesn't have the kind of record at any slam Patty has at Wimbledon). Secondly I don't think that any woman who has a career grand slam (for Dani in mixed doubles, only Court, Navratilova and King have done that) can ever have completely wasted her talent.

DutchieGirl
Aug 17th, 2007, 01:06 PM
Oh come on - Patty tanks Wimby every year - most people know that. She hates grass and does whatever she can to get off the stuff as quickly as possible. ;)

ugggh It's mixed doubles!:rolleyes: As one commentator called it The funny cars of tennis...Having a career slam in mixed won't get u in the back door of the hall of fame.:lol:

But hey great for Dani:tape:

Sprem, Dokic, Srebotnik, Dementieva, Myskina

Of the players on your poll...

Vaidisova is playing great tennis, is far from wasting her talent...
Safina could have done better, injuries are her problem, I think...
Schnyder is up & down, she should have been top ten consistently...
Kirilenko is just coming back, and I believe she won't have more problems
Hantuchova should have been top 10 consistently with her game... :shrug:
Razanno does the opposite thing...is exceeding or is up to her talent I think, look at all of her great wins
Mirza isn't consistent enough
Schiavone with all of her effort she gives into her matches, I doubt she can be very consistent...
Li has problems with injuries too much...
Petrova should have been top 7 consistently...

Patty probably. She should be much more acomplished.

Razzano. Never even reached top 30 (yet).

I would have thought Daniela would have won more titles than he has.

Nicole I would have thought would have won at least a Tier 2 title by now.

Schnyder then Hantuchova

people who voted dani realy cmon top 5 is way better than her game deserves i think she has over achieved! shes just a ball striker nothing else! schnyder now this woman has never been top 5 and she has every shot in the book and some that arent in the book she just dosen't have mental toughness!

Most players are just ballstrikers nowadays. I fail to see how it proves Hantuchova has overachieved.

Razzano then Patty then Dani

Razzano is spectacular to me when she's on...her inconsistency kills her

Patty has actually done something I guess in my eyes...her mentality kills her

Dani just decided she didn't want to eat i guess :shrug:

she has made it a career of losing in the 4th round in slams

cmonmasha
Aug 17th, 2007, 05:05 PM
I say petrova..She has an exellent game style: her serve, voleys, she is a powerful hitter. If it wasn't because of her lack of mental toughness, she could have perfectly won a GS.

Schnyder is the most talented of the women you chose. Dementieva should be on the list though. I think she could have achieved a couple of slams at least with some lessons from a good serve coach and a sport's psychologist. I still count her as the best active player to have never won a slam. Patty is second on that list. The Serbians are close behind now that they're getting fairly consistent.

I chose 10 random names.. Plz don't mention others here.

Probably not the best way to get a list of 'good' choices for a poll. Vaidisova doesn't belong on a poll like this, her results are way above average for someone her age... Just a suggestion, but maybe next time you could think of a few choices that best fit the catagory of whatever poll you make. You did manage a few people who arguments can be made that they've wasted their talents, so it's not too bad...

I voted Dani out of those 10.She literally wasted the period between 2003~2006.

If you know it so well, you make an interesting poll next time. It's easy to criticise others' stuff.

If people posted for 5 pgaes, that means they found it worth to contribute to.
