Plus she won more tournaments I think?

Sorry but a lot of Davenport´s weeks at number one were post 2000, when she won her last slam, if anything she benefited from the flawed ranking system that rewards quantity vs quality. Not that Kim did not profited from this in 2003, but still, Davenport gets a lot of credit from the weeks at number one and she was not number one for that much time between 98-2000 when she won her slams..

More to that Kim won 3 of her slams having to go throught the Williams sisters, and she basically just won the Australian Open 2011 over the generation suck players.

This is a super difficult question, i think think the slam win tops everything else, here is no different ...
Kim also leads their head to head 9-8 just as barely her carreer over Lindsay... This is so tough..

Otherwise we should assume that players like Conchita, Sabatini > Peak Mary

Re: who's greater, LD or Kim?

Davernport, they are not in the same league. BTW i really though it was Dominguez Lino and said to myself why the hell does he compare Dominguez Lino and Clijsters, did they play the same opponent.

Way to distort facts. She only won ONE slam going through them both. The other two times she beat Venus which isn't saying much.

Re: who's greater, LD or Kim?

LD leads the H2H in slams 5-1 Kim was a bad matchup for Lindsay, but a lot of her wins came in 2003 when Lindsay was really struggling before rebounding 2004-2005 in form.

Very close, but I obviously pick Lindsay Kim was a great player but she benefited from really great timing, Lindsay would have cleaned up a lot more slams if she were a few years younger.
