[QUOTE=Rollo]It's hard for me to see the comparison. Clijsters will leave a better record IMO, you have to think she'll end up with at least one slam, probably more.
Who knows what will happen it happened that Gaby had to compete against Navratilova, Evert, Graf, Seles, considered among the best players ever. Gaby reached 3 grand slam finals all of them against Steffi Graf, lost twice in 3 sets and won her only grand slam title at the Usopen 1990 in straight sets over Graf.
I happened that Kim yes she has won 2 masters already same as Sabatini, but you can look at her grand slam finals lately with neither Venus, Serena playing having only Henin as her main rival (who she used to own a year ago from now) and she keeps losing with ease. Gaby had the tough luck of facing Steffi Graf in all of her finals.
Kim has plenty of room to work with, but we wonder what would be happening if Venus, Serena, and a non injured Monica Seles would be on scene these days, i really doubt Kim would be reaching this finals.
Im not saying Gaby is a better player now, in fact Kim`s game reminds a lot of Steffi Graf, but really her weakest part of her game is the mental part, Kim has failed pretty badly and has missed this easier chances of getting slam wins without having to face Serena or Venus.
As for Gaby i think she had a great career, as i said before had to compete against 4 players considered among the best players ever and she notched some wins here and there against them, and that`s enough for me as a fan.
