View Full Version : Active Players Who Have Actually Won a Grass Court Tournament

Jun 20th, 2008, 11:20 PM
Since the the "Grass Court Season" is incredibly short, there are naturally only a handful of active players who have won a grass court title.

Venus Williams 4 (Wimbledon 2000-01, 2005, 2007)
Maria Sharapova 3 (Wimbledon 2004; Birmingham 2004-05)
Serena Williams 2 (Wimbledon 2002-03)
Lindsay Davenport 2 (Wimbledon 1999; Eastbourne 2001)

The following players have won one grass title each:
Kateryna Bondarenko (Birmingham 2008)
Anna Chakvetadze (den Bosch 2007)
Eleni Daniilidou (den Bosch 2002)
Jelena Dokic (Birmingham 2002)
Jelena Jankovic (Birmingham 2007)
Michaela Krajicek (den Bosch 2006)
Svetlana Kuznetsova (Eastbourne 2004)
Amelie Mauresmo (Wimbledon 2006)
Mary Pierce (den Bosch 2004)
Lisa Raymond (Birmingham 2000)
Klara Zakopalova (den Bosch 2005)
Vera Zvonareva (Birmingham 2006)

So, a total of 16 active players have a grass title to their credit. Of course, Daniilidou, Dokic, Pierce, and Raymond are not in this year's Wimbledon singles' draw; and, two new names (Safina/Tanasugarn and Petrova/Radwanska) will be added to this list after tomorrow's finals in Eastbourne and 's-Hertogenbosch.
