Did Hingis ever enter the olympics?

I wish Maria S. would win the gold in Beijing.

Maria Sharapova

In Singles, I would say Serena,

Re: Who is the best player not to win an Olympic medal???

Holy Christ--how old are you people?

If we are talking only since 1988, there are only two possible answers to this: Chris Evert or Martina Navratilova. Lumping the others mentioned into this discussion is an insult.

Billie Jean King not having an opportunity to win is also a crime.
