Out of the following - all the top 30 players who are still title-less, plus a few talented others - who will be the next title débutante?

Hantuchova, if she plays a smaller tourney, or possibly Stevenson giving the way she´s been playing. With all of these players, I think it depends on the right draw rather than their readiness to win the title.

It's difficult. Looking down that list....

Tamarine????? She's consistently making 4R and quarters at slams, but no title. Similarly I'm surprised at Magui too.

Half of the players realistically should have one - more than one - by now (Elena, Anna, I'm talking to you).

Alexandra Stevenson seems to have a lot of mementum right now, she just needs a kind draw and surface to pick up a III or IV.

I'd go with Elena though.

My guess is probably Hantuchova, Kournikova, or possibly Tanasugarn.

It'll be Anna :), but if not her then I think Schiavone just because she'll play some of the tier 4 events on clay.

I don't really see these players play much at all. I guess I'd have to attend the event live. But given how Alex has recently s-t-r-e-c-h-e-d Monica in Tokyo, I'll give her my vote.

I would have seriously considered Anna, but Anna seems to like playing against the elite.

My vote is on Elena and have to say that Anna's chances is good too.

Yeah, who is that Nancy?

People who are confused about Nancy, go read Vanity's post. Whenever she wins a GAME it's cause for celebration. I put her there cos I had an extra space as a half-hearted attempt at humour. Or as a way of saying 'none of these players will ever ever ever win a title'. Or whatever.

But she has 4 votes :eek:
