Henin´s league = Venus league, don´t forget that.
Still Mauresmo has to win a lot more slams to be there, more than the ones she already has got. So...

And as Lofefiftheen said Kim is in the middle in the Mauresmo/Pierce league.

Re: Kim Clijsters will be most remembered in the league of:

I really believe that Kim is tarnishing her legacy by choosing to play this year as she has. I mean skipping the two grand slams where her results have been the best for the one where they have been the worst? Playing less than ten events in the entire year? It just seems so pathetic to me. That said, she will be around Sabatini probably. I think that Mary has had a far better career than Kim, but others may disagree.

Re: Kim Clijsters will be most remembered in the league of:

Perhaps Kim is in Capriati's league, too, because even though J Cap has 3 Slams, she didn't really win much else. Kim has several major Tier I titles and 2 YEC titles. They are basically in the same league.

Kim should have quit the day after she won the 2005 US Open. Seriously ...

Re: Kim Clijsters will be most remembered in the league of:

Even though she won a major and was ranked #1, I think Kim Clijsters will be remembered in the "Unrealized Potential" league.

Re: Kim Clijsters will be most remembered in the league of:

She, Sabatini, and Pierce occupy that middle area and likely won't improve, but Mauresmo's got a shot at moving into Capriati/ASV territory, maybe up to Davenport/Hingis, but Serena level, or even Henin/Venus, is too far, I think.
