Male Tennis Grand Slam number one seeds

For almost every professional tennis player, the most important goal of their career is to clinch at least one of the four major titles of the sport – the US Open, French Open, Wimbledon, or the Australian Open. However, there are a number of talented tennis players out there who might be exceptional at the game or even the best during a particular period, but who sadly missed out on clinching even a single Grand Slam title. Whether you blame it on luck, lack of physical form, low self-belief, or lack of focus, the following are 5 great female tennis players who fell short of conquering a Grand Slam title.

Caroline Wozniacki

A professional tennis player hailing from Denmark, Caroline Wozniacki is a young, talented, and ambitious player who has yet to secure a Grand Slam singles title to her name. Wozniacki held the world no.1 ranking in October, 2010, and continued to hold this position for almost 67 weeks. She was the first Scandinavian woman to hold the #1 position. Her closest chance to winning a major title came during the US Open finals in 2009 against Kim Clijsters. However, Wozniacki lost in straight sets to the Belgian top seed. As of October 2013, Wozniacki has clinched 21 WTA singles titles, as well as the 2006 Wimbledon Girls’ Singles, but the young Dane is yet to grab a women’s Grand Slam title.

Pam Shriver

Currently a prominent tennis broadcaster for ESPN, Pam Shriver is one of the best female tennis players America has ever produced. In her entire tennis career spanning more than 16 years, Shriver has hundreds of accomplishments to her name, including 21 singles titles, 106 doubles titles, and overall more than 600 victories in both singles as well as doubles tournaments. Her career ranking peaked to world #3 in February 1984, and she made it to the semifinals seven times at majors. The closest she got to a Grand Slam was at the 1978 US Open finals as a 16-year-old, which she eventually lost to Christ Evert. Shriver is remembered for her stunning doubles performances, most of which were with Martina Navratilova, winning 79 women’s doubles titles together.
