The UNBELIEVABLE Esther Vergeer!

Twenty-six-year-old Vergeer finishes 2007 as Women’s Wheelchair World Champion for an astonishing eighth consecutive year. She extended her singles winning streak to 303 straight matches, having remained unbeaten since January 2003, and became the first woman to win the Grand Slam of four Super-Series titles. During the year she collected a total of 15 singles and 12 doubles titles, and led Netherlands to victory in the World Team Cup.

A winningstreak of 303. With tournaments that normally has a maximum of 3 or 4 matches.

This is CRAZY!

She's soooo going to win her 5th and 6th Paralympic Gold Medal this year..

Wow! That is something to be proud of! Imagine what she would play like if she had the use of her legs.

Now that's dominance. Henin can learn a thing or two from Vergeer.

Re: The UNBELIEVABLE Esther Vergeer!

I saw her playing at the US Open this year, and she was really fun to watch. She plays very consistently, but she knows the exact right time to attack.

Re: The UNBELIEVABLE Esther Vergeer!

I watched wheelchair tennis for the first time last season, at the USO. I gained SO much respect for her and all wheelchair players. What they do is incredible.
