who's greater, LD or Kim?

I still think LD is better than Kim, because LD won 3 different slams.

Discuss.

Re: who's greater, LD or Kim?

Personally, it's very close. Both have just about 80% winning percentage. Kim has one more Grand Slam, but Lindsay has the Olympic Gold. Both had around a ten year stretch of consistently advancing deep into the draw at Majors. Kim's three YEC help her out, a lot. Lindsay has fourteen more overall titles than Kim, which helps her a lot. Lindsay really played peak-Hingis, peak-Venus, and peak-Serena throughout her career, and she had to beat almost all of them to win her titles, so I think her competition was consistently tougher. Kim's two best years were kind of lacking in the competition department. Clijsters leads the head-to-head by one match. Davenport finished #1 four times.

I pick Lindsay.

Re: who's greater, LD or Kim?

For me, they're even. They had such great games and were so close accomplishment wise it would be unfair to pick one over the other

Re: who's greater, LD or Kim?

Close, but 4 slams > 3. Suddenly it doesn't get any consideration?

Well, that's really not "the factor" when it comes to who is greater

Re: who's greater, LD or Kim?

I really thought it was Lino.
I'm not sure with this one, maybe I would give the advantage to Clijsters.

Anyway it's Davenport. Clijsters won her slams during generation suck and with Safina/Wozniacki being #1. With the only exception in 2005.
Davenport won when Seles, Hingis, Graff were active and when being in top 10 meant something.
Plus she won more tournaments I think?
