Re: Elena Dementieva will win the 2010 Austrialian Open

She could win. She has all the attributes: physical fitness, powerful groundstrokes, experience.
But what she lacks is proven slam winning mentality. Not that she cannot make a breakthrough, but...

Re: Always wondered if Justine was popular?

I liked her at first. I liked her game and her freshness. But after the hand incident I was less impressed. And then came the Australian Open final, and I did not care about her at all. Also, her...

Re: Safina tied for 10th all-time for weeks at #1

Good on Dinara. All that hard work paying off. Shame she gets bullied by the media, her coach and many tennis fans. But there are enough supporters out there who will recognise her achievement, and...

How to improve Women's Pro tennis.....

There is a lot of complaining about women's professional tennis going on but what are the solutions?

The main complaints are:
1) The tour's greatest player only plays her best at the slams and is...

Re: I don't know Who Da Hell is winning the 2009 US Open

Safina will make it through to the final. Despite what people say about her, she has reached semis or better in 5 of the last 6 slams and won 3 of those semis. She will beat Jelena in the quarters. ...

Re: Momosova go head to head, who will win?

Re: BOMBSHELL!! Justine Henin preparing a comeback

What a joke. What was the big retirement press conference about? Ok, she changed her mind and that is her rght, but I will have lost a bit of respect for her if she comes back.

Re: Jelena Jankovic will win the USO!

She could win if she does not face Serena. If Serena makes the semis she is winning it. Jankovic's only chance is if she draws her in the quarters as quaterena may appear. But Jankovic is not beating...

Re: BOMBSHELL #2! Toronto R2: A. Rezai b. D. Safina 36 62 64

Dinara needs to spend the next two weeks before the US Open sorting out her serve.

Re: WWW [1] Dinara Safina Vs Kim Clijsters ???

Yes, it is strange how people say Dina has no weapons. How do you get to be number one for 17 weeks with no weapons?
Dina's weapons are in order of strength: Willingness to fight, powerful, deep...

Re: WWW [1] Dinara Safina Vs Kim Clijsters ???

Safina to win 6-7 7-5 6-2
This is scary stuff for Safina, a player who already has immense pressure to win a slam and validate her number One status and will be criticised should she lose to a...

Re: Cincinatti Round 3 : Dinara Safina def. Shuai Peng 6-3 6-4

Good for Dinara to have a straightforward win. A good run here would make up for last week and get some valuable and needed points if she wants to stay number 1.

Re: Who is greater - Amelie Mauresmo or Mary Pierce

Both have the same number of majors: 2.
Mary was Runner up 4 times to Amelie's 1.
Amelie reached number One.
Amelie won the YEC, beating Pierce.
Mary was relevant in Majors at different periods...

Re: How will you react to the Kim/Bartoli result?

I won't be surprised if Bartoli wins, considering her recent form. But if Kim wins, I will be shocked. Yes, she is a major talent and accomplished player but to come back after 28 months out of the...

Re: I'm Number One, Like It Or Not Says Safina

I don't think it is that she is proud to be a Slamless No.1. More that she is just proud to be No.1.

No doubt as her career progresses, she will start to reassess her playing schedule and approach...

Re: I'm Number One, Like It Or Not Says Safina

Good for Dinara. She did not design the ranking system. And whoever did, did not imagine a scenario where the holder of 3 majors did not dominate the tour all year round as Navratilova, Graf, Seles,...

Re: who's #11, (the alltime top ten is totally set for a couple years)

Venus.
Historically Wimbledon is the game's premier tournament. She has won it five times and made eight finals in the past decade.
She also has won two US Opens, the games second biggest title,...

Re: Why is Serena so much better at the majors?

When Serena wins a slam she wins more than a million dollars, she gets a huge trophy, she gets applauded by a crowd of 15,000 or more people, she gets her photo taken by a hundred odd photographers,...

Re: Stanford QF : Sam Stosur Def. Serena Williams 6-2 3-6 6-2

Sam played great tennis. Serena was not at her best.
Serena wins the slams but her lack of results outside the slams are having a negative impact on women's tennis. The tour has a dominant player at...

Re: The Fall Cometh: Dinara Safina

She can win a few claycourt titles, make a good run at Wimbledon where she only has few points. Possibly she could hold onto it. Then there is the US Open series. She may lose it here but then in the...

Re: AO QF:(3) Safina def. Dokic 64 46 64

This was a very frustrating match to watch with the quality being horrifyingly low. Both were clearly nervous and the match depended on who could keep it together. Safina managed to hold her nerve at...

Re: Poll:Davenport overrated?

It all depends on how she is rated. If she is rated as one of the all time greats, then imo, she is overrated. If you rate her a very good player, I would agree.
Let's look at her career statistics....
