Well I guess anyone who was number one would have won a wta event would be the highest...I think I read somewhere Myskina won one when she was ranked really low, and Lucic did as well...

I think that the highest ranked person to have ever won a WTA Tour title would have to be number 1. Although I am not sure .

anna kournikova....no wait... she didn't win a singles title at all

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

I believe currently the record is held by Angelique Widjaja who came out of no where to win Bali, as a wildcard, ranked somewhere around the low 500s. She showed a tiger's drive at that tournament.

Then there was Mirjana Lucic who was unranked when she won her first title.

BTW, I believe Myskina was ranked 288 when she won Palermo in 1999.

Go Anne Keothavong, Akgul Amanmuradova, Samantha Stosur, Na Li, Liga Dekmeijere, Tamarine Tanasugarn ,Jill Craybas, Daniela Hantuchova, Natalie Grandin, Kimiko Date-Krumm, Elena Baltacha, Melanie South, Dominika Cibulkova, Caroline Wozniacki, Jie Zheng, Andrea Petkovic, Elena Dementieva, Jelena Jankovic

I just checked my stat, and Angie was ranked 579 when she won her title.

Unfortunately for all you Nicole fans, she was already ranked well inside the top 150 when she won her first title...

Go Anne Keothavong, Akgul Amanmuradova, Samantha Stosur, Na Li, Liga Dekmeijere, Tamarine Tanasugarn ,Jill Craybas, Daniela Hantuchova, Natalie Grandin, Kimiko Date-Krumm, Elena Baltacha, Melanie South, Dominika Cibulkova, Caroline Wozniacki, Jie Zheng, Andrea Petkovic, Elena Dementieva, Jelena Jankovic

Kournikova got to 8 without any titles...
I think Dementieva also got to 8 without any titles around that same time...

If u mean highest to never win a title, I don't think that Petrova has won one yet. She's at about #13ish & has been top 10.

Henya's been top 25 before

"Religion has actually convinced people that there is an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. Any if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!

But he loves you."
