2 majors.
Always a threat.
Never to #1, I think her career high is #3.

Discuss.

All GS champions should be inducted. Let alone multiple Slam champions. Let alone Slam champions in both singles and doubles.

Re: If MaryPierce retires . . . is she HOF worthy?

  1. 2 Grand Slams
  2. 4 other Slam final
  3. at least one title on every surface and 18 in total
  4. the way she came back so many times form injury
  5. the pure long gevity of her career
  6. She got to #3 and could have been number one on talenet
  7. top ten 7 years of her career
  8. top 15 9 years of her career
I think she really deserved it.

Re: If MaryPierce retires . . . is she HOF worthy?

Throw in a doubles slam, a mixed slam, and a Fed Cup title for good measure as well. I would be very surprised if she weren't inducted, even if her career stops today.

Marie will be in the HOF for sure... What a career and without the numerous injuries, I think she could've been even better! And that's scary!!!

Re: If MaryPierce retires . . . is she HOF worthy?

She deserves it, so she better get in. I mean, she has accomplished so much in her career.

hunger, desire, fire..........
stength, power, precision.........
talent, court sense, smartness........
no i am not talking about a racket or a squirrel, i am talking about the former and future number 1..............
martina hingis!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good Luck Justine Henin Hardenne, Venus Williams, Maria Sharapova, Mary Pierce, and any of my other favorites that I might have forgotten about at this moment.

Nope. Has won around equal amount singles titles(18) as years she's been a pro. Only 10 doubles titles.

Novotna has lots of doubles titles. But as someone said, they did let Sabatini in...
