Lightbulb End Of An Era: Aug. 21st 1988 - Nov. 5th 2006. Amy Frazier falls out of the Top 100

As some of you know Amy Frazier has decided to take off the fall season like she has quite a few times in her career. As far as i know she is not retiring and will be playing in 2007. However...this will be the first time she has not accumulated enough points to stay inside the worlds top 100 . She has been inside the top 100 for 18 years 2 months and 2 weeks. That record comes to an end this Monday, November 6th when she will fall to around #130 in the world.

I know that she has never been the one people talked about..whether its for her game, ranking, her outfits or her looks. To me, she will always be little Amy Frazier...the 18 year old i met at the US OPEN in the late 80s when i was just begining to play She seemed so nice, so down to earth and so in love with the game. Anyways...i thought this deserved a thread of some sort. Hopefully Amy will be back in Australia next year ready to work her way up back up the ladder...somthing she hasn't done in nearly 20 years. ...

Great post FF

Amy needs to pass that 500-win mark, so I hope to see her in '07, shame the record has to end, but all streaks must end, and that was an incredible one, well done Amy

Yeah... I think she knows that she had an exrtremely poor season and that she could benefit from the rest if she wants to continue to play for another couple years. So, its probobly for the best in the long run. She is only behind Martina N. in consecutive weeks inside the top 100. Pretty impressive for a player who has never been inside the top 10 or in a slam SF

She is so cute I bet she doens't care that much about these numbers... (even if she likes math, ) Anyway, hope she will be back next year! Love her classic style of play and attitude, she's so nice and really enjoys playing the game. Great player

Great thread!

Amy has a lot more fans than she realizes -- though not nearly as many as she deserves. She brings a lot of class to the Tour and I hope she'll stick around for a few more years. Love ya, Amy! Have a wonderful break, then come back as enthused for tennis as ever! You're the best.

I saw her at Wimbledon this year playing doubles. I was amazed she's still playing. Especially as Tauziat and Novotna were playing a seniors match at the same time.

Are Pierce and Frazier the only players left who turned pro in the late 1980s?

Hmm..i think Maureen Drake turned pro in 1989 or so..she is still ranked in the top 100 in Doubles. I think that may be it...
