For me I have to pick Maggie or Amy Frazier.

Hard to argue with Maggie Maleeva. Career high of #4, 2 Tier I titles, but underperformance in the slams . If not for that lone USO QF, she would definitely be the best player without a quarterfinal.

maggie maleeva in my book too...very few others that cross the mind that were top 4 and had tier 1 titles...dani just behind this, but maggie was in the top 10 for longer

It will always be Arantxa, hall of famer! and martina hingis and kim clijsters - amazing legends
ana ivanovic and the italian girls, especially pennetta (forza azzurre! RG CHAMP FRANCESCA AND FINALIST SARA!)
aga, vika, sam, na in the next tier
NEVER say "I don't care who wins, I just want good tennis"

yeah that would help

I think Daniela is definately a contender though, without having seen such a list.

Katerina Maleeva - 7 QF (at least one at each major) but never a SF.

Among active players, Dani H leads the way with 3 QF (only RG is missing from her last eight collection).

Traits Gandhi considered the most spiritually perilous to humanity.
*Wealth without Work * Pleasure without Conscience

*Science without Humanity *Knowledge without Character

*Politics without Principle *Commerce without Morality

*Worship without Sacrifice
