Mary Joe broke the Top 20 at 17 the year Chris retired. She reached GS finals in 1990, 1992 & 1993 so she belongs more to the Graf/Seles era. She even reached round of 16 in Roland Garros and US Open in 1999.

But bad news for Ana (current #7) is if she even reach final at RG, she will be 6th after that in best case .

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)

21. Shinobu Asagoe, Jeanne duVall, Helen Gourlay Cawley, Joanette Kruger, Kate Latham, Henrieta Nagyova, Beth Norton, Marianne Werdel-W

Great list Brian & good idea to update, Spiceboy. It's only fair to mention, imo, that the players in large type & italics above were surely ranked higher before the inception of the rankings in November 1975.
Well said AndyT!

Billie-Jean King & Margaret Court were both former #1 ranked players - did Evonne get to #1?

And Francoise Durr (not Frances Durr) reached a peak of #3 - I had to spell that out to those who weren't sure.

It would be great to know the highest rankings those others like Rosie & Morozova etc got to also out of respect for them ...

Fave recent players: .. Seles .. Hingis .. Serena .. Venus .. Federer .. Roddick .. Hewitt .. Haas .. Rafter .. Safin .. Radwanska ..
60s/70s: Evonne Goolagong .. Francoise Durr .. Chris Evert .. Margaret Court .. Nancy Richey .. Maria Bueno .. Billie-Jean King .. Lesley Turner .. Virginia Wade .. Ken Rosewall .. Rod Laver .. Bjorn Borg ..
Entertainers: .. Diana Ross .. Dionne Warwick .. Shirley Bassey .. Randy Crawford .. Burt Bacharach .. ABBA .. Woody Allen .. Maggie Smith .. Gena Rowlands .. Judy Davis .. Heath Ledger .. Little Britain ..
Inspiration: .. Jeshua Ben Josepth .. Conversations with God .. Abraham with Esther & Jerry Hicks .. P'taah ..

Aren't you missing Magdalena Maleeva, or am I simply to blind to see her?

You forget Jelena Jankovic is #3 (like Dule® notice) ... only 22 womens in history so far is better ranked than JJ today

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)
