Anyone who never got a real chance due to injury, etc. (Brie Rippner was a prime example). Those Above All had full careers, though Jen's was "interrupted for other reasons".

Conchita.... mainly because my favourite player ever won't play... luckily she said this weekend in an interview she'll play forever

Justine of course, it will be like another Steffi retirement all over again.
Venus more than Serena but it won't be the same without either one of them.
Ai (she is so lovely!!)

Justine Henin

Thank you.
