"Jeykll & Hyde" tennis players-who is the worst?

basically, a "jeykll & hyde" is a player who plays awesome tennis one day beating the world's best player's and then plays awful the next day due to nerves,lack of confidence or just can't be bothered to play. i guess in simple terms, just being plain inconsistent. so who is the worst offender who can claim to be the biggest jekyll & hyde player??

Conchita Martinez!

The woman owns every shot in the book. One day she can blow you off the court and the next lazily strolling about the nether regions of the court sending up moonballs.

Patty S. Total schitzo.

"Hatred is the coward's revenge for being intimidated" - George Bernard Shaw




"And for the best of the teen-agers who followed her, and who occasionally referred to her as over the hill, Graf had a ready answer: against top-ranked Martina Hingis, Graf wound up 7-2. Graf's stirring 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 throttling of Hingis at the French Open final this June was perhaps the most emphatic parting shot the game has ever seen. "

Kournikova used to be this way also. She would play brilliant matches, and then go completely off.

But my vote goes to Dokic. She can go from a top five player level to outside top 100 easily.

hmm as i thought, rubin and dokic head to head already(2 each), both way too under-achieved in their careers so far.

Mary Pierce. No one demolishes Seles and Vicario losing three games combined, then lose to Germana di Natale ranked two-hundred something a few weeks later, then win Roland Garros the next week

azarenka - pavlyuchenkova - li - jankovic
garcia - bencic - paszek - rus - kanepi - kuznetsova - stephens
bouchard - karatantcheva - larcher de brito - voegele - lim - mladenovic

mary pierce - forever #1
vaidisova - kournikova - golovin - henin
the boys - federer - gasquet - del potro - haase - nishikori
