Re: who's greater, LD or Kim?

A tough call. I will go with Clijsters, because of her slam count and how consistent she was during her golden years.

Re: who's greater, LD or Kim?

Lindsay Davenport with a big margin . Overall she had much better career in highly competitive WTA, whereas Kim's main achievements happened when she was a part-timer in the time of nobodies

Re: who's greater, LD or Kim?

Clijsters. Not only does she have 1 more slam but she has 2 more WTA Championships which is a huge event. She has many Miami titles while Lindsay has none, that is the next biggest. Also surface to surface Lindsay is only better on grass. Kim is better on hard courts by a considerable margin, and obviously better on clay by default vs Lindsay who sucked. As for excelling vs tough competition Lindsay won 0 slams once the Williams began their era.

Re: who's greater, LD or Kim?

Lindsay is a legend, you can't compare these two. LD excels in so many ways that I can't see the comparison...

Re: who's greater, LD or Kim?

Lindsay and it's not even close. Comparing her with the likes of Clijsters is insulting and vulgar.

Re: who's greater, LD or Kim?

Davenport won her slams in a very tight window, about 18 months. Clijsters won her's over a five plus year span, with a two year layoff. It's fair to say Clijsters was a slam winner for a far longer period of time, and that isn't a small thing.

There's not a heckuva lot to choose between them. They went about their careers in different ways, matured at different times.

BTW, the whole 'generation suck' thing is BS. The ranking system has a purpose. So-called 'fans' choose to use it for another purpose, and then insult the players.

Davenport.

Kim did very well during her comeback but beating Wozniacki and Zvonareva in Slam finals isn't that hard for an elite player.

Its close, but I would say Lindsay when you consider the doubles career as well.

Davenport won when Seles, Hingis, Graff were active and when being in top 10 meant something.
Plus she won more tournaments I think?
This.

Also Davenport was many more weeks number 1 and finished 4 times as year end number 1

And 3 diferent slams including Wimbledon + Gold Medal >>> 3 us open + australian open

Lindsay. She got chokey at the tail-end of slams in 04-05 but even so she is still greater than Kim.
