Thanks for coming in, This is a different and fun way to decide who was the best player to never win a slam. I have composed a 32 player draw tournament, with 16 of todays top players, and 16 players who have retired in the last 11 years. The winners will be decided by your votes ... the majority wins.

RULES

To be eligible to play, you have to have been a member here on or before Oct 29th, this will negate multiple votes from the same person since you are only allowed to vote on each match once. You must vote on all matches for your votes to count. There are no seeds, the surface is rebound ace. Cut off time for voting on the 1st rd matches will be midnight Oct 31st ... HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!!

FIRST ROUND MATCHES

Justine Henin vs Andrea Temesvari<br />Lisa Raymond vs Pam Shriver<br />Chanda Rubin vs Laura Gildemeister<br />Amanda Coetzer vs Lori McNeil<br />Kim Clijsters vs Natasha Zvereva<br />Sylvia Farina-Elia vs Helena Sukova<br />Sandrine Testud vs Helen Kelesi<br />Meghann Shaughnessy vs Mary Joe Fernandez

Amy Frazier vs Kimiko Date<br />Amelie Mauresmo vs Kathy Jordan<br />Anke Huber vs Leila Meskhi<br />Elena Dementieva vs Manuela Maleeva-Fragniere<br />Barbara Schett vs Zina Garrison<br />Nathalie Tauziat vs Katerina Maleeva<br />Jelena Dokic vs Julie Halard-Decugis<br />Magalena Maleeva vs Andrea Jaeger

i have a question though. do you seirosly not consider anna kournikova as a top 16 current non-grand slam winner? or do you fear her sexuality would give her an unfair advantage since many do not actually consider her tennis in addition to the obvious. With very very very few exceptoin she has proven to be better, ranking and head to head, with other current players on the list, as well as doubles. oh wait, is that why shes not in it because she has doubles? anyways, thats all im wondering.

The truth is, I did not realize that Anna was not in it until Serena_Body said so. I chose the 16 active players ofF the top of my head. Clearly my mistake and I do apologize ... Anna will be in the next one for sure! <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

Happy Halloween Big Lindsay! <img src="graemlins/lick.gif" border="0" alt="[Lick]" />

Thanks for holding another of your classic events and your replies to me in other threads. I'm a big lazy cat, so I'm thanking you here!

Votes:

Henin (but Temesvari gets a lot of admiration<br /> from the guys in the crowd <img src="wink.gif" border="0">

Shriver<br />Rubin<br />Mcneil upsets Coetzer --more males dissapointed.<br />Zvereva<br />Sukova<br />Testud-I see this going 3 hours. Helen using every <br /> cuss word known to man. Very entertaining <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> <br />Mary Joe (at last, a victory for the men to <br /> celebrate <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

Date<br />Momo<br />Huber<br />Maleeva-cries over bad line call, then cries tears<br /> of joy on winning!

Garrison<br />Tauziat<br />Dokic<br />Jaeger
