Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario, and Lindsay Davenport seem sure bets.

With Capriati now at 2 slams, and reaching #1 I think she could potentially aswell, if she can stay a few more years around the top 5 and maybe pick up 1 more slam I'd say she's a guarantee.

Also I think Mary could have a chance having won 2 slams, and although Conchita only won 1 slam, her longevity in the top 10, a couple other slam finals, and tremendous contribution to Fed Cup success for Spain could be enough aswell.

Yes, I agree with Randy, both ASV % Lindsay deserve to be in the Hall of Fame.

The same with Conchi <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> She'll become soon the 8th player with most matches won ever!

Yes I agree that Venus, Martina, Lindsay, and Monica will all make it..Remember, that even Austin who only won two grand slams and retired early made it...Correct me on Austin if I am wrong(sorry)...I think now that Jennifer has won two grand slams has reached #1 is a good sign, but the fact that she is also an Olympic Gold Medalist will mean she is a shoe in.....

Considering that to date there have been so few number ones, 9 in 20+ years isn't a lot when you consider the men have 3-4 a year, suggests that any former number one is a definite. As such, Martina, Monica, Lindsay, Jennifer and Arantxa are the active players expected to go in. Venus is almost definitely a shoe-in, with 4 Slams and 2 Olympic Golds. Number one status will only cement this. Serena could get there but may need to add to her one Slam title and Olympic doubles Gold. She's the most obvious of the rest of the pack.

Natasha for her outstanding doubles career.

I wouldn't be surprised, that even without needed<br />results they might indict Anna for unprecedented for a single player contribution into making the game more popular.

I really hope Natasha gets in....

she has had one of if not the most successful doubles careers ever (rivaling Navratilova's) and a fairly successful singles career.

Arantxa better make it in....if not, then that tennis HoF is gonna hear a lotta sh*t from me!

All the players who currently have 3 or more Singles slams. Jennifer Capriati if she gets one more, or Serena Williams with 2 more. Mary Pierce, doubtful. Given American bias and her lower media profile, I think she needs 4 Singles Slams to make it, and I doubt she'll get that.

Martina, Venus, Arantxa, Lindsay, Capriati should go in.

I think Serena and Mary would get in too, if Serena could win another 1-2 slams.

I never heard of Hana Mandlikova. who is she???

I actually dont think I will put a player who is not yet ranked as high as number ONE in the hall of fame. I'm not biased, its just my opinion. I never liked Jeniffer Capriati but I'll put her in because of what she achieved. HOW CAN U BE A LEGEND IF YOU NEVER REACHED NUMBER ONE??????

OK, TELL ME WHAT ARE THESE LADIES THAT I PUT IN DONT HAVE THAT VENUS HAS????? ALL OF THEM ARE MULTIPLE GRANDSLAM HOLDERS AND REACHED NUMBER ONE AND VENUS HAS"NT. CANT U WAIT TILL SHE MADE IT THERE?????

Some of them never defended a slam more than once, and most of them don't have as many slams as she has.
