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.
