and i hope safina gets healthy & matures some more, then becomes a dominant player & wins some too. :yeah:

and it just wouldnt be 'right' if dementieva wins one; or would it :p

Unless we get a slam without the sisters or the Belgians none of them will ever win one :p

Serena y Monica
Mar 23rd, 2010, 09:37 PM
I voted for all of them...but the only ones who even stand a chance are the top 3. Of those the top 2 have the game but not the heart...and poor JJ has the heart but lacks the game.

laurie
Mar 23rd, 2010, 10:01 PM
Looking at some of the names on that list, it just shows you need more than talent to win a slam title, you also need the will to win plus a bit of luck. Quite a few players on that list have the ability to win a slam title.

It may be too late for Dementieva but after the way Jelena played in Indian Wells and if Chip Brooks can discipline her and she's prepared to be disciplined, then Jelena has a chance to win a slam, she definitely has the game.

Petrova certainly has the game but not the right attitude. Zvonareva is a dark horse. Bartoli needs to get fitter to win 7 matches. I don't think Zheng and Li have the game. I also don't think Safina has the game, her game is too limited. Sam Stosur doesn't seem to have the belief but also Sam has a few technical weaknesses, but she can still improve.

Dementieva lost in GS finals to Myskina and Kuzzy

Safina lost in GS finals to Ivanovic and Kuzzy

I'm afraid both of them had their opportunities. You don't get to play players like that in GS finals very often.

What it all comes down to is none of these players will beat the Williams or the Belgians late in Grand Slams, let alone a final.

trufanjay
Mar 23rd, 2010, 11:58 PM
I can only see Jankovic, Dementieva, or Safina winning a slam. But there is a possibility that no one on that list will ever win.

Staying at the same level won't be winning her any majors. She'd need an extraordinary second week.

Mar 24th, 2010, 03:06 AM
I still have believe that some of them will out of this list someday somehow :angel:
1. Safina, I hope she can make a great comeback. Then somehow win French, if not this year, she still have 3-4 years to finally win one or two
2. Dementieva, this girl should win one. Immediately... It's really a heartbreaking with the loss at the late stage at Slams with great skills she had
3. Jankovic, after badly slump time, she win something BIG. She had a chance
4. Bartoli, take the Wimbledon after Williams Sisters retire, please...
5. Li, because she is my fave :bounce:

Elena never had real chances then . She is playing better now than in 2004

As I see this subject , If Elena was one of the faves to win Majors five or two years ago o , she is and will be favorite now or in two more years

Havok
Mar 24th, 2010, 05:02 AM
I voted for everyone save Jankovic. Somewhere along the lines I'm sure her defensive capabilities will pay off for her and she will win a Slam. Roland Garros being her best bet followed closely by the US Open. If she would put more effort into Roland Garros her odds would be fantastic since very few top ladies really know how to play on the dirt anyways.:o

Elena never had real chances then . She is playing better now than in 2004

Her tennis is far less explosive and dangerous than it was in 2004/2005. There is a reason she hasn't defeated a top-10 player at slams since USO-2005.

All of them.

Did you really have to include Daniela H in that list? :rolls:

Who do you want me to include instead? Chakvetadze, Dokic? :sobbing:

Base on this poll, JJ is the one most people think will finally win a slam before she retire.

Safina is the only one I think will do it. If she doesn't, I'd be disappointed. She's young enough and has an explosive enough game combined with demonstrated dominance at lower-level events. I don't think any of the others listed have that combination.

As much as it pained me to say Dinara and Jelena will never win a slam, I had to vote for all of them.

The question isn't "Who is better at the moment?". Did you watch Stosur and Jankovic's grand slam finals? Jelena came very close to taking a set of in-form Serena. Sam could barely scratch a lead against Schiavone.

Jankovic has a better chance to win a slam final than Stosur, based on history.

justineheninfan
Oct 29th, 2010, 01:30 AM
I think Stosur will win a slam. I think Dementieva could still win one. The rest, forget it. Jankovic is done, the French Open semis this year was the death of her. And Safina should retire. The rest never had a hope in the first place, except for Petrova who could have won a slam if she wasnt such a headcase.

Honestly I agree with most of this. I do think Sam will win at least one French. She's proving this week she's no fluke, and I think when she gets on the dirt next spring she's going to be very hardy to beat, again.

Elena I give a small outside chance, if the cards fall her way. Jelena too, but less so. Jelena hasn't been around, grinding away at the top for as many years as Elena, and seems to get worse and worse as the months pass. Dinara I believe to be done as a Top 10 player and Slam contender.

JJ has 6 semi final appearances. Stosur has 2, at the one slam.

JJ's grand slam final was a lot closer than Stosur's.

JJ won Indian Wells. Stosur won Charleston.

JJ is the empress. Stosur is a peasant.



Jankovic has a better chance to win a slam final than Stosur, based on history.

Preach gurk.

Mr.Sharapova
Oct 29th, 2010, 02:14 PM
My vote would have gone for Caroline Wozniacki if she was in the poll but well out of these I guess its Dementieva who will end up slamless.
I would love to see Dinara win the French in some part of her career.

Voted all. What shocked me the most was that out of the 286 people that voted, only 236 selected Daniela Hantuchova. Sorry, but do 50 people really think she will win a slam?

... Really?

All of the above :tape: I'd be pleasantly surprised if Anotoxfa could win a slam. Obviously I wanted and dare I say, expected Lena to win one but that's in the past I guess. I don't see it happening for Dinara, especially not now. Li has a chance, but I don't think she will. I'd also like to make a BOLD PREDICTION: Azarenka won't win one either.

SN: 60 voters think Zheng Jie is going to win a slam? :help:

Even Jankovic and Safina have those kind of slams too. No one really cares about that :shrug:

Vera can still won one I think. She has the talent, just needs to put it together mentally. Umm that is about it of those on the list. Bartoli could have some other nice runs like Wimbledon 2007 or French 2011 but none of them will ultimately lead to the title. Safina, Zheng Jie, Hantuchova, no way. Jankovic, very unlikely at this point. Petrova will probably retire soon the way she is going.

Besides Vera I guess Stosur has a shot to win a French. I think it is more unlikely than likely though. Her game is limited and can be exposed by better players on any surface, even if she is playing well.

Some of the poll results are funny. Half of this forum actually thinks Safina will win a slam someday, that is rich. And over 60% think Jankovic will.

No chance for anyone on this list who hasnt won a slam yet to win one. I would say Petrova has a chance but she was too big a headcase to win one even when she had more game than she currently has. She just has barely enough game now to win one if she hits peak form for a fornight and gets a good draw, and holds it together completely mentally, and that all wont come together at once I dont think, especialy the last part.
