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 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.
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.
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?????
