Concerning the "American Amazon Five", records vs. other players

I can only think of one player who has an even or better record against all five. Anyone know who I'm thinking of??? There may even be more than that.

Is it Martina Hingis that has a better record? If so, many of those victories (except Seles) were 2000 and previous.

I have never been a Hingis fan. As a matter of fact , she is my favorite player to cheer against...but I want her back B I G !!! Tennis needs her right now. Her style of play, carefree attitude and the fact that she is the complete opposite of every player out there right now.

Comeback Martina, stronger and better than ever.

I might even root for you a bit, here and there!

Venus, Serena, Jen, Monica, and Lindsay.

No I think Hingis has a losing record to Lindsay, like 11-14 or something.

Well i don't think any active player is going to have a better record against Venus, Serena, Jen, Monica, and Lindsay than Swiss Miss Hingis!

And Martina isn't American.



Hmmm. Martina is the only one I can think of. Juju: No. Kim: No. Jelena: Hell no. Amelie: Um, I don't think so



Martina is


10-9 against Venus

6-7 against Serena

5-4 against Jen

14-4 aaginst Monica

10-14 against Lindsay

She's 3-2 in total head-to heads agaist the "American Amazons" as you call them.

I know one retired player who has an even or better record against the "Big 5"...in fact, she leads the head-to-head against all of them except Serena, with whom she's tied.

Can't think of any active players that have such a record though.

Arantxa could.

Proud to be an American
Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

No, Arantxa has a horrible record against Monica. Not sure what her head-to-head is against the others.

Retired players as well? Then I'd have to say Steffi. Not sure though.

I was referring to Steffi in my original post, and actually, she does not have a losing record to Serena, or any of those listed for that matter.

Steffi's record is:

1-1 vs. Serena

3-2 vs. Venus

10-1 vs. Jennifer

10-5 vs. Monica

8-6 vs. Lindsay

7-2 vs. Martina (I just threw in Hingis for good measure).

Quite an impressive record overall.
