Underrated players?

Who, over the years, have been very underrated? I would say:
Tracy Austin
Kimiko Date
Chris Evert
Evonne Goolagong
Diane Fromholtz
Anne Jones

Must be tones more?

This is my cool signature

Totally agree. She is definitely not underrated. She is a five-time Grand Slam Champion. I think she UNDERACHEIVED like as daveportdude said only making the final of the Australian Open and Roland Garros once and has passed the semifinals 2 to three times. Great point made!

Venus. Sloane. Carla. Vera

I have always thought that Jankovic and Safina were so underrated. People never seemed to notice them before but now they are showing how good they really are.

I think Linsay Davenport is fairly underated. Onli because she has been so consitent for so long and we expect it from her. So know notices. For all those AFL supporters, like Scott West, so gud that the umpies expect it so he neva wins the brownlow!!!

Well I think that Lindsay is both over and underrated. She's underrated in that people fail to see how many titles she's won, the players she's beaten and how long she's been at the top. She's overrated in that she has won only 3 Slams.
