Hmmm, Let's not forget that Davenport defeated Graf in her lone Wimbledon trophy. Steffi did not play well in that final, obviously, but I think at her peak Lindsay would have been the favorite out of these 4. Too much consistent power, too many consistently booming serves.

It's a tough choice for 2nd between Maria and Jana.. While I would put Martina 4th in this poll, I would also give her a great chance to defeat the other three players on this surface. Her lone win over Sharapova was on an extremely fast surface, she beat Jana for her lone Wimbledon crown, and also matched up well with Linds on quicker surfaces as she could expose her movement.

Davenport>Sharapova+Novotna>Hingis

This.
Though I do think Novotna deserves a bit more respect in this thread; she was a tremendous grasscourter.

Losing 5 times in 5 meetings against Graf at Wimbledon proves that she's not a "tremendous" grasscourter...

At her peak she is a tremendous grasscourter, but she was a mental midget. And yes there is a difference between been a sucker and saying that she was a mental midget as an excuse and being an amazing player like Novotna and really being a mental midget.
