greatest active mixed player

following the OG match, who is currently the best mixed doubles player?
mixed accomplishments rate higher than doubles or singles achievements, obviously, but doubles can work as a tie-breaker.

stats taken from the statistics thread, poll does not take into consideration OG, hopman cup and exhos, which can also be taken into consideration.

honorable mention goes to the ultimate bridesmaid - Elena Vesnina, GOAT-FAIL of all time.

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.

Re: greatest active mixed player

I've never seen Hantuchova play Mixed, but clearly she is good since she has won all 4.

Lisa Raymond is a fantastic Mixed player. Quick hands, blocks the man's serve back well.

Venus and Serena are obviously good because of their net presence and power/serves.

Huber has 2 titles and 3 finals, nice to see she was ignored.

I'm going to choose Hantuchova because she won all 4 and did so with 4 different partners.

O'rly?

Is the evil statistics thread also to blame for the fact that you sneakingly removed Huber (who has a better mixed record than almost half of the names you listed)?

Yeah but her partners had extra motivation of possible victory sex. Just look at Melzer/Benesova.

- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a reigning world #1.
- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a top 5 player at a major.
- Caroline Wozniacki has not beaten a top 3 player en route to any of her 24 titles.
- Caroline Wozniacki has beaten three top 5 players en route to her 24 titles (#4 Radwanska, #4 Zvonareva and #5 Schiavone)

This update was pigeonpowered by Aga Radwanska and fake MTO.

Re: greatest active mixed player



you know what, i might have made the mistake by accident, but i stand by it

i think i should add all the partners involved, as the williams usually teamed up with one of the men's greatest ever doubles players (bryans) while some of the men really were carried heavily by their female counterparts.

Re: greatest active mixed player

Daniela BY FAR, she has the mixed doubles Grand Slam, the others don't.

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.
