at first i thought 'stevenson for sure'! but i now realize i totally forgot about clarissa fernandez

"It’s always been, ‘I wonder what she’s got, Sharapova?’, because I don’t see that she’s got something that special… Or do you know? Can you tell? What’s so exceptional about her?”

Dechy or Stevenson.

Clarissa actually could have done well without all of those annoying injuries.

Daniela Hantuchova.

Casey Dellacqua, Jelena Jankovic, Anna-Lena Groenefeld,
Jelena Dokic, Mirjana Lucic, Sara Tomic, Sloane Stephens
Melanie Oudin, Kiki Bertens, Kaia Kanepi, Alison Riske

I voted Clarisa Fernandez...She's never really done well on the WtaTour, but has been rather succesful on the ITF...But then again, what she did at RG in 2002 was outstanding, and i won't take anything from her...Beating Clijsters, Dementieva and Suarez in the same tournament is something many can only dream of

Wimbledon:

NO.7: VenusWilliams
NO.6: SerenaWilliams

Clarissa isn't my vote because she deserved the sf with good wins


fabiola benefited from a retirement and an easy draw...I only know her name because of that sf

all the others had some other good showings

Lucic was incredibly talented. She had won 2 Tour titles and made the semis of Wimbledon (nearly taking out Graf) by the time she was 17. Her father basically ruined her career with all the physical and emotional abuse.

Bitttchhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh You Better Pay It Honey! The Devil Is A Liar!!!!! Bitches Get Interviews And Shit? Where They Do That At Honey? Girls Are Late Honey!!!! The Queen Needs To Get Into It Honey Cause The Girls Is Late Out Here! Yes Honey Im Throwing Epic Shade!
